Cong Slams Satpal Satti Over ‘Derogatory Comments’ on Rahul Gandhi
On Saturday, 13 April, BJP’s state unit chief Satpal Singh Satti targeted Congress President Rahul Gandhi at a public event in Baddi, Solan from the Shimla parliamentary constituency.
Satti commented on Rahul’s "chowkidar chor hai” taunt at PM Modi, and called Rahul and the entire Gandhi family “thieves.” He added that many Gandhi family members, like Sonia Gandhi and Robert Vadra are out on bail, and so Rahul is not in any position to comment.
News agency ANI caught the video, and it is unclear if Satti was being crass in calling the Gandhi family thieves or if he was using an expletive.
In an NDTV report, state congress chief Kuldeep Rathore added that this sort of abusive language was not expected from a senior politician.
