New Delhi, June 12: Congress leaders are feeling restless without the Power. In a continuation of a series of attack on the Police and Armed Forces personnel doing their duty, Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit has called Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat as a 'sadak ka gunda' (Street Punk).
Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit today said it felt bad when Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat spoke like a "sadak ka gunda (goon on the street)," prompting a furious response from Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju.
"What's wrong with (the) Congress Party? How dare Congress call (the) Indian Army Chief as "Sadak Ka Gunda", Rijiju tweeted. Dikshit soon apologized for his remarks.
Dikshit later tried to eat his words saying: "I genuinely believe what I said was wrong. So I apologize for it and withdraw my statement." As some media reports quoted him.
It seems that Congress is upset with the Army action like this in Jammu Kashmir
Dikshit had told news agencies that Pakistan Army personnel were like "mafia people," so it was understandable if they used such language.
The verbal attacks on the Police and Armed forces are on a rise. Recently in While in Madhya Pradesh, Congress MLA Shakuntala Khatik was caught on camera asking people to set a police station on fire. The Congress leader was caught on camera asking people to set a police station on fire – with a senior cop standing right next to her pleading for her to stop.
