Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday voiced disapproval of party leader Sandeep Dikshit's remark likening Army Chief Bipin Rawat to a 'sadak ka gunda' (a street goon).
While speaking at a party event here, Gandhi said no politician should make any comment on the Army Chief.
"I was told by someone from press (media) that one Congress leader has made a comment on the Army Chief. It is wrong. I want to make it clear that the Indian Army works for us, protects the country. There is no need to say anything against the Army Chief," he said.
Dikshit had on Sunday triggered a row after he called the Army Chief 'sadak ka gunda' over the latter's public statement.
While Dikshit offered an apology for his remarks, the BJP on Monday demanded an apology from Congress President Sonia Gandhi as well.
