Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ram Madhav, who has kicked up a row by attacking Vice President Hamid Ansari over yoga, today said he wanted the controversy to end.

“See I want Yoga event to be remembered. Millions and millions of people participated in it. I do not want any further controversy. The matter closes here,” the BJP General Secretary and RSS nominee in the party told reporters.

Madhav, who was here to chair a BJP meeting and review the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, was replying to questions pertaining to the controversy generated by his tweets questioning Ansari’s non-participation in mass yoga celebrations yesterday.

After his tweets, the Vice President’s office last night came out with a statement saying he was not invited at all.

Asked about Ansari not being invited to Yoga Day, Madhav said he has no knowledge about it.

Union Minister Jitendra Singh, who hails from Jammu, also tried to downplay the controversy and said that Ram Madhav has already cleared his stand and there is no need to discuss it further.

Madhav, had in tweets, questioned Ansari’s absence from the mass yoga but deleted those after the Vice President’s office protested. He then tweeted that Ansari was unwell, which was also contradicted by the Vice President’s office, which said he was not invited at all.

    Hon'ble Vice president is a consutional post and is well respected. There is no compulsion to attend or not to attend the Yoga day for him at Rajpath. Even if Madhav didn't want to attend he could have sta back. Let the Yoga spirit come from within and not by force. better to refrain for making irrelevant comments and focus on well being of the country

      Madhav had control when the tweets did not go out. He had control before he composed the tweet. He had control when the mischievous thoughts emerged in his mind. He has no control on it now. He showed himself to be a petty minded. He showed his parivar who cheered him and retweeted him, and agreed with him to be petty minded. It can not end because he wants / orders. It can possibly end if he prostrates before our VP Shri Ansari and apologizes. But his vanity, false pride and perverted mind would not think of it. BJP thinks it can get away with all their pet concepts. They were NOT voted by more than 60% of the voters.
