A day after India skipper Virat Kohli – who advised fans not to burst crackers and ruin the environment – wished the nation on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, Congress spokesperson Udit Raj has slammed the cricketer. In a demeaning fashion, Raj said that Kohli is Anushka Sharma’s ‘dog’.

Translated Tweet in English

Udit Raj’s tweet: “Anushka does not have to take care of her dog Virat Kohli. No one is more faithful than a dog. Kohli had taught you looters, scoundrels and fools that humanity is at risk from pollution. You will have to get your DNA checked whether you are native here or not?”

Here is Kohli’s Diwali post.

“Please remember do not burst crackers, protect the environment and have fun at home with your loved ones, a simple diya and sweets on this auspicious occasion”, Kohli had said.

Meanwhile, the Indian cricket team has reached Australia after a hectic IPL season in UAE. In Australia, the Kohli-led side has already started training for the limited-overs series against the formidable hosts. The Indian skipper – who is scheduled to become a father in January – will return to India after the first Test in Adelaide. India’s hopes will be pinned on the skipper to fire and lead the side well in Australia.
