'Rakhi Sawant of Punjab': Raghav Chadha controversial remarks against Navjot Singh Sidhu
New Delhi, Sep 17: Aam Aadmi Party MLA, Raghav Chadha made sexist remarks in attacking Navjot Singh Sidhu, calling him Rakhi Sawant of Punjab politics.
"The Rakhi Sawant of Punjab politics - Navjot Singh Sidhu - has received a scolding from (the) Congress high command for non-stop rant against Capt. (Chief Minister Amarinder Singh) ... therefore today, for a change, he went after Arvind Kejriwal," Raghav Chadha tweeted.
"Wait till tomorrow for he shall resume his diatribe against Capt. with vehemence," he said.
Sidhu had in the video said, "Exploitation of farmers and decreasing prices even on crops where MSP is announced--Arvind Kejriwal you notified the Private Mandi''s central black law! Has it been de-notified or the masquerading is still going on?"
Soon after Chadha''s tweet, actor Rakhi Swant started trending on the microblogging site as netizens came out in her support and slammed the AAP MLA for the comparison.
Alka Lamba, former AAP member and now with the Congress, said Chadha''s comments showed the mentality of the ruling AAP in Delhi towards women as she equated it with RSS''s thinking.
Meanwhile, Sidhu hit back at Chadha, saying the AAP leader had not yet answered his question.
"They say man descended from the apes and the monkeys, Looking at your mind @raghav_chadha, I believe you are still descending! You still haven't answered my question about notifying the Farm Laws by your Government," he said.
