Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, on Saturday morning, retorted to Gandhi’s comments, saying that the BJP treats LK Advani is like a father figure to them. Swaraj took to Twitter to show her displeasure with the Congress president’s statements in his speech.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Saturday hit back at Congress president Rahul Gandhi for saying veteran BJP leader LK Advani was humiliated by the party. Gandhi, who was addressing a packed ground with college students in Pune, said that the seniormost leader was insulted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
राहुल जी – अडवाणी जी हमारे पिता तुल्य हैं. आपके बयान ने हमें बहुत आहत किया है. कृपया भाषा की मर्यादा रखने की कोशिश करें. #Advaniji Rahulji – Advani ji is our father figure. Your words have hurt us deeply. Please try to maintain some decorum of your speech. #Advaniji
Rahul, at a gathering at Chanda Club Ground in Chandrapur town, said, “Gurus are given a lot of importance in Hinduism. And Advaniji is Modiji’s guru. A disciple never folds hands in front of the guru. Advaniji has kicked off the stage (Joote maar ke Advaniji ko Utara stage se). Then they speak of Hindu religion. Where is it written in religious teachings to beat people, to indulge in violence? Nowhere.”
