Responding to the incident, Dikshit said that 'basic civility should be maintained while dealing with the media.
While the Congress came out in defence of Vadra saying that he didn't know that it was a reporter and that the reporter was not giving Vadra his personal space, Dikshit said that this was his personal opinion and he didn't speak as a Congress spokesperson.
Meanwhile the BJP slammed Vadra for his 'inappropriate behaviour.'
Vadra had pushed the reporter's mic and asked him: "Are you serious" when he was questioned about the controversial land deals in Haryana. According to the video footage, he even asked the journalist to delete the recording. Later on that evening news reports suggested that Sonia Gandhi met Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra.
