The BJP MLA from Baytoo in Barmer district of Rajasthan made the contentious remarks against Rahul Gandhi as the Congress vice president met Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students to join the protests against the police crackdown on students accused of sedition.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kailash Choudhary, Wednesday, termed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi as a 'traitor' and said the 'Rajkumar' should either be hanged or shot to death.

"Wherever anti-national and pro-Pakistan slogans are raised, Rahul Gandhi goes and sides with those people. If Rahul Gandhi, who is called the 'rajkumar' of Congress, goes and sides with these people, stands with them and supports them then it is treason," Chaudhary said in his constituency.

The Congress vice-president has got himself in trouble, both legally and politically, as a case has been registered against him in a district court in Allahabad for his remarks on the JNU incident.
