The biggest concern of a section of our political class right now is not employment or farmer distress - it's the caste or the religion of Hanuman.Some BJP netas are busy slugging it out to lay claims on Hanuman. It started with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who publically announced that Hanuman was a Dalit where he was countered by one of his own ministers - Laxmi Narayan Chowdhury who said that Hanuman was actually a Jat. And now another BJP leader - Bukkal Nawab has declared that Hanuman was a Muslim. On Election Epicentre, Marya Shakil asks - why play politics on Hanuman instead of focusing on development?
