Prime News, National (New Delhi), September 17:- The AAP’s Raghav Chadha lashed out at Punjab Congress chief Navjot Sidhu on Friday (Sept 17) – whom he called “the Rakhi Sawant” of the state’s politics – over his criticism of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government’s “masquerade” over the Centre’s controversial farm laws.
Chadha’s swipe – denounced by some on Twitter as being sexist – came after Sidhu posted a video message mocking Kejriwal over “exploitation of farmers” and his government’s notification (in December last year) of the law that allows farmers to sell produce outside mandis.
“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.
A few hours earlier Sidhu had tweeted a video statement in which he attacked Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (in power in Delhi) over its stance on the farm laws.
“Exploitation of farmers and decreasing prices even on crops where MSP is announced – Arvind Kejriwalji… you notified the Private Mandi’s central black law! Has it been denotified or is the masquerade is still going on?” he asked, tagging the AAP’s primary and Punjab handles. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
