Recently Rahul Gandhi has visited the violence hit areas of Mandsour where the farmers have been protesting over the killing of farmers in police firing . And Rahul Gandhi was in all praise for his visit there.
A congress district president from Meerut have been removed from all the party positions for using the phrase ‘ pappu ‘ while praising party Vice President Rahul Gandhi. The Congress leader reportedly praised Rahul Gandhi’s recent visit to Mandsaur but chose the word ‘pappu’ to refer him.
‘Pappu’ is a term often used by Rahul Gandhi’s critics to describe him.
Congress president Vinay Pradhan has used the term ‘Pappu’ in a message send in WhatsApp group ‘ Indian National Congress’ . The message read “Pappu could have joined hands with Adani, Ambani and Mallya but he did not do that. Pappu could have been a minister or even the Prime Minister, but he did not go down the road. Instead, he put his life on the line by going to Mandsaur”.
The Chairman of the disciplinary committee Ramkrishna Dwivedi has removed Vinay Pradhan and mentioned it as an ‘provocative message’ .He said that “This is an attempt to malign the party leadership. Other parties appear to be involved in this… Vinay Pradhan is guilty of violating the constitution of the Congress party”.
Vinay Pradhan, however, said that the alleged messages were not sent by him and called it an attempt by some people in the Congress to “malign” him. “The screenshots being circulated have been photoshopped. I respect Rahul Gandhiji and would never use such a language for him,” Pradhan said.
He also added that he was not given any chance to explain the situation and stated that he would seek an appointment to meet Rahul Gandhi and explain him.
