Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Rawat who had been creating a buzz for his “ripped jeans” remarks lately, has once again made a statement that has got everyone talking.
This time, in a major gaffe Rawat said that “America enslaved India for 200 years”.
A video of the Uttarakhand CM surfaced in which he could be heard saying, “America, which enslaved us for 200 years and ruled the whole world, is struggling" to control the coronavirus pandemic.
#WATCH "...As opposed to other countries, India is doing better in terms of handling #COVID19 crisis. America, who enslaved us for 200 years and ruled the world, is struggling in current times," says Uttarakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat pic.twitter.com/gHa9n33W2O— ANI (@ANI) March 21, 2021
Rawat was comparing India and America’s covid-19 caseload when he said that “US ruled India for 200 years”.
"As opposed to other countries, India is doing better in handling the pandemic. America, who enslaved us for 200 years and ruled the whole world... it is struggling at present", he said
Rawat had been facing a flak for his comment last week on women wearing ripped jeans.
