For Congress, Aam Aadmi is not Common Man but Mango People


Robert Vadra Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, Oct 12: Aam Aadmi of India is not going to take it lightly for sure. In a weak defence to Robert Vadra's Facebook comment 'mango people in a banana republic', Congress said the statement should be taken lightly.

Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary stressed that the remark should be taken lightly.

"This is an era of communication where you have platforms like Facebook, twitter to speak. There is also a generational shift where people speak with humour. So, it should be taken lightly," Chowdhary said in an interview to TV-channel CNN-IBN.

Chowdhary further defended Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law by saying that Arvind Kejriwal has not yet substantiated his allegations against Vadra.

Now, the question is does Congress party considers Aam Aadmi as Mango People? Is it not an insult to the common man of India, the very vote-bank of Congress?

Moreover, Vadra's Facebook comment had received a wide-spread criticism from members of Indian Against Corruption (IAC) for calling India a banana republic.

After that Vadra was forced to delete his Facebook account.

Vadra's Facebook status ignited ruckus over his alleged involvement in an inappropriate land property deal with DLF. Kejriwal earlier on Oct 5 claimed that Vardra was provided an interest-free unsecured loan of Rs 65 crore by real estate firm DLF with which Vadra allegedly bought property worth Rs 300 crore from the DLF itself.
