Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit on Sunday said that it felt bead when Army chief gave statement like a “sadak ka gunda.” Soon after making that statement, Dikshit withdrew his statement by saying that he genuinely believed that what he said was wrong and apologised for it.
After Dikshit’s statement on Army chief, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju attacked Congress.
I don’t know what is wrong with Congress? How Congress can say that Army chief is talking like a “sadak ka gunda,” said Rijiju.
Earlier, writer and historian Partho Chatterjee had compared Army chief Bipin Rawat to General Dyer. It created a lot of controversy. Chatterjee had criticised Army chief for the incident where Army personnel tied a man to jeep to control crowd in Jammu and Kashmir.
