However, Radhe Maa’s appearance on the reality show irked The Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP). They condemned her move and expressed their unhappiness. Not only this, but they also dissociated themselves from Radhe Maa.
ABAP president Mahant Narendra Giri told IANS. “She (Radhe Maa) is neither a saint nor is she an ascetic. She is not associated with any akhara. Earlier, the Juna Akhara had conferred the title of Mahamandaleshwar on Radhe Maa but later, when they saw her true colours, she was expelled from there.”
Rahul-Jaan’s Nepotism debate
For the very first time, the nepotism debate happened in the Bigg Boss house. During the initial nomination rounds, Rahul Vaidya targetted Jaan Sanu, claiming he is receiving support because he is the son of renowned singer Kumar Sanu. Rahul called Jaan a product of nepotism and thus nominated him.
“I would like to nominate Jaan Kumar Sanu because I hate nepotism. Whoever has come on the show, they’ve come based on their hard work. Jaan is on the show because he is someone’s son,” said Rahul. His remarks did not go down well with other contestants and Salman Khan, who reprimanded him for unnecessarily dragging the nepotism topic here.
