LS Speaker's 'praise for Brahmins' triggers political row, opposition parties dub it as 'casteist'

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 11 September 2019
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla's comments that Brahmins always held a high place in society kicked-up a political row on Wednesday with opposition parties dubbing it as "casteist remarks". Apart from sharp reactions from political parties, the people's Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) also condemned the Speaker's remarks, posted on Twitter after attending a Brahmin Mahasabha event in Kota on Sunday, and said they will complain to President Ram Nath Kovind.
