Chandigarh, May 29 (IBNS): Making a controversial political statement, Haryana Minister Anil Vij has compared Congress president Rahul Gandhi to deadly Nipah virus, which claimed 13 lives in Kerala so far.

Vij took to Twitter to say in Hindi, "Rahul Gandhi is similar to Nipah virus. Any political party which will come in contact with him will be finished."

Earlier also, Vij made several controversial statements.

In one such instance, Vij had said Bhagat Singh and Lala Lajpat Rai made sacrifices for the country unlike India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Gandhi.

In 2017, the minister reportedly said the decision of making Rahul as the Congress president will only help Prime Minister Modi to make the country "Congress-free".

Modi had called a Congress-mukt or Congress-free nation.

NIpah virus is borne by fruit bats and the infection is believed to have started with a family in Kozhikode.

Nipah was first identified in Malaysia in 1998.
