He and Sajjan Kumar, both accused of leading mobs in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi's assassination, were reportedly asked to leave the stage where Rahul Gandhi was to sit. "Rahul Gandhi can not wake up early, he can not skip a meal and he is talking about bringing change in the country", BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters.

He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. The photograph made the ruling party term the Congress's protest "stage-managed" and "farce".

Patra said the Congress had fallen into its own trap. "We will stand against and defeat it in 2019 general polls", Gandhi told reporters. "It is an attempt by his party to fast-track his politics to burnish his credentials despite people rejecting him time and again", he told reporters. "Instead of looking at the country's progress, they (the BJP) are looking at what Congress leaders are eating".
