Haryana minister Anil Vij compares Rahul Gandhi to Nipah virus

CHANDIGARH: Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij, who is known for making controversial statements, on May 29, compared Congress President Rahul Gandhi to the deadly Nipah virus, saying he would “destroy whosoever comes in contact with him”.
“Rahul Gandhi is like the Nipah virus which will devastate the party and destroy whosoever comes in contact with him,” Vij said in an official statement issued by Haryana government.
The Haryana minister has often made controversial statements in the past.
He had once described the Taj Mahal as a “beautiful graveyard”.
Vij also took a dig at Haryana Congress leaders, saying all of them were in a hurry to get themselves declared as the party’s chief ministerial candidate for the next assembly polls.
“All leaders, including CLP leader Kiran Choudhry, Ashok Tanwar, Captain Ajay Yadav, Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Kumari Selja were in a tearing hurry to get themselves declared as CM choice. But these self declared CMs may not even become MLAs,” Vij said in the release.
