Congress leader says Amit Shah has contracted suar ki beemari, makes us cringe

BK Hariprasad, a Congress MP, has said, “Few MLAs have returned to the state [Karnataka]. Because of Amit Shah has panicked and has contracted a virus. It is not normal fever. It is swine flu — suar ki beemari.”

ACongress leader has mocked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief, Amit Shah, contracting the swine flu virus.

BK Hariprasad, a Rajya Sabha MP from Karnataka, has said, “Because of everything that is happening in Karnataka, Amit Shah has panicked and has contracted a virus. It is not normal fever. It is swine flu — suar ki beemari.”

He said this in context of the two parties exchanging poaching charges in Karnataka.

The state has been in a major political turmoil ever since Congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar accused the BJP of trying to upstage the government by indulging in horse-trading. The BJP, in turn, alleged the Congress party was trying to influence the saffron leaders.

To this end, Hariprasad further said, “If he [Amit Shah] tries to topple the Karnataka government, he should know, he will suffer from an upset stomach too.”

Amit Shah on Wednesday tweeted that he was suffering from swine flu. He was admitted to AIIMS in New Delhi.
