Good times just don’t seem to be coming any time soon for the Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit. Coming out as a fresh jolt to the Congress leader, an FIR has been registered in Uttar Pradesh’s Hussainganj police station over his remark against the Indian Army Chief, Bipin Rawat.
The row was triggered in June after Sandeep Dikshit had compared the Army Chief with ‘sadak ka gunda’.
However, after being on the receiving end of massive condemnation from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Dikhsit had apologised for his remark.
The son of former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said, “I have reservations on a comment of the Army Chief but I should have chosen appropriate words. I apologise.”
Dikshit’s comment also drew criticism from Congress Party Vice President, Rahul Gandhi who expressed disapproval over party leader Sandeep Dikshit comparing Army Chief General Bipin Rawat with a goon on the street.
The remark drew flak from all the corners with Union Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman saying, “It shocks us. It did not come from somebody from Congress, but from a very eminent Congress leader.”
Following the massive condemnation, Dikshit tendered an apology for the same. He further said that he shouldn’t have used ‘uncivilised’ against Army words to convey his message.For all the latest National News, download NewsX App
