Congress slams Assam CM’s for Saddam Hussain’s swipe at Rahul Gandhi

No bigger proof of govt’s ‘inefficiency’ than change of CMs in Gujarat, says Tewari


Senior Congress leader Manish Tewari on Wednesday compared Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to a ‘petty troll’ after the BJP leader declared Rahul Gandhi, who is leading the party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra- now looks like Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. Sarma was taking swipe at Gandhi’s appearance; the Congress MP now sports a big bushy beard.

Tewari said public servants needed to maintain ‘decorum of language and propriety’. “The chief minister of Assam, unfortunately, sounds like a petty troll when he articulates sentences of this kind,” he said.

He also accused the BJP leader of legitimising corruption in Gujarat – where the party hopes to remain in power after next month’s election – calling it a ‘dangerous sign’ for democracy.

“You (BJP) legitimised corruption and then you say you want to implement this model in the entire country. The legitimisation of corruption is a dangerous sign for democracy,” he said.

Referring to the bridge collapse in Morbi district last month – in which 141 people died – Tewari said the BJP had become ‘arrogant’ and believed they cannot be removed from power.

“If such a tragedy had taken place in some other state and 141 innocent people have died and over 180 (were) injured… would responsibility not have been set? Would nobody have resigned? The Gujarat High Court is slamming the state government daily.”

Congress general secretary in-charge communications, Jairam Ramesh on Wednesday also lashed out at TV channels for “debates” on Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s “obnoxious” remarks on Rahul Gandhi’s beard.

“I just saw that his looks have also changed. I said in a TV interview a few days back that there is nothing wrong with his new look. But if you have to change the looks, at least make it like Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel or even Jawaharlal Nehru will do. It is better if it looks like Gandhiji. But why is your face turning into Saddam Hussein?” Sarma took a dig at Gandhi.

Hitting back, Ramesh tweeted, “It is truly pathetic that several TV channels did debates today on Assam CM’s obnoxious and totally unacceptable comments on Rahul Gandhi’s beard. This trivializes the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
