BJP calls Rahul’s tribute to Vajpayee drama, demands apology over controversial tweet

New Delhi, 26/12: The BJP on Monday attacked the Congress and demanded an apology over unsavoury remarks made against former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee by a leader attached to the Congress chief’s office, even as the opposition party distanced itself from the controversy.



Gaurav Pandhi, who is a coordinator with Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge’s office and handles social media for him, had put out a tweet alleging that Vajpayee had sided with the British. He later deleted it as the BJP accused Rahul Gandhi of “doing a drama” of paying homage at Vajpayee’s memorial while party leaders use “abusive words” against the former prime minister.
