New Delhi: Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Saturday asked the Congress president to maintain decorum in his speech while commenting on its leaders.
Swaraj took strong objection to Rahul Gandhi’s remarks on the treatment meted out to BJP veteran L K Advani by the party.
It is worthwhile to mention that Gandhi on Friday had accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of humiliating Advani.
Gandhi said this while addressing a poll rally at Chandrapur in Maharashtra that disrespecting one’s guru is not Hindu culture.
Swaraj tweeted: “Rahulji – Advani ji is our father figure. Your words have hurt us deeply. Please try to maintain some decorum of your speech.”
Gandhi’s swipe at Modi over the treatment meted out to Advani follows the BJP patriarch’s blog published on April 4 where he said the BJP never considered its political adversaries as anti-national.
Observers maintained that the remark of Congress chief was a veiled reference to Advani not getting Lok Sabha poll ticket from Gandhinagar. The BJP has fielded party president Amit Shah from that seat.
