Speaking to ANI, Chowdhury said, "It is wonderful that Supreme Court has taken the Cognizance of Nupur Sharma today. But the entire BJP should apologise to the nation for the kind of divisive policy and politics they do. The party is spreading so much hates around."
The Congress leader said it is the entire party that has set the country on fire, don't make women culprit only.
"Do not make women to 'Bali ka Bakra'. The BJP should apologize to the country because they have fanned hatred and set the country on fire. The BJP divided the country and spread hate" Chowdhury said.
She further said, "It is so funny that we make so many rules to bring women forward but in the whole history of the BJP, they found one woman to fix and SC also does that."
"What Nupur Sharma did that is wrong but make her the 'Bali ka Bakra' and leave the rest of the BJP. BJP has to be accountable. they are responsible for divisive politics," she added.
Meanwhile, the apex court further blamed the suspended BJP leader and said that she and "her loose tongue" has set the entire country on fire and she is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country and said she should "apologise to the whole country".
