New Delhi: Booker prize winning author Arundhati Roy has kicked up a controversy, stating that Mahatma Gandhi was the first corporate sponsored NGO of this country.

According to a Hindustan Times report, Roy was speaking as the chief guest on the opening of the three-day long 10th Gorakhpur Film Festival-Cinema of Resistance-organised at Gokul Athithi Bhavan, Gorakhpur on Saturday.

"It was one of the greatest falsehood in this country to worship him (Gandhi) who wrote horrible things about Dalit, women and poor," she said.

"I have studied a lot about him (Gandhi) and said this on the basis of whatever he has written between 1909 to 1946," Roy said.
