''Ours is not a mafia army like the Pakistani army which makes statements like the goons on the street. It looks bad when our Army chief gives a statement like a 'sadak ka goonda' (goon on the street)," the former Congress MP had said.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi had objected to this, and said that this is absolutely wrong and there is no need for political leaders to comment about the Army chief. While, BJP had lashed out at Sandeep saying that such hurtful statements will be 'democratically rejected'.

Dikshit also took to Twitter and posted an apology. He wrote: "I have reservations about a comment by Army chief but I should have chosen appropriate words. I apologise."
