AAP’s Alka Lamba makes insensitive, crass comment on Parrikar’s health to spread canards about Rafale deal

Aam Aadmi Party leaders have a history of making morbid statements devoid of any sensitivity.

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has been suffering from pancreatic cancer and has been undergoing treatment for the same. However, the chief minister’s ailment has not stopped the opposition politicians from making crass comments.

Days after Congress leader asked the BJP to either ‘show Parrikar in person or conduct his Shraddh (death ceremony)’ Aam Aadmi Party MLA Alka Lamba made an insensitive comment on his health. In a tweet which is now deleted, Lamba asked Parrikar to ‘disclose the truth’ about Rafale.

She asked Parrikar to not stay quiet. “You won’t believe how many blessings you will get,” she said. Citing a popular Hindi proverb, she said, “Jahan dawa kaam nahin aati, wahan dua zarur kaam aati hai.” Meaning, where medicines don’t work, prayers do.

Aam Aadmi Party leaders have a history of making morbid statements devoid of any sensitivity. While Lamba has displayed lack of remorse after stalling rescue operations during a fire at Chandni Chowk, Delhi, by laughing about it on Twitter, Arvind Kejriwal’s wife, Sunita Kejriwal had given a veiled threat to the Delhi LG Anil Baijal on Twitter. After her nephew Vinay Bansal was arrested in the PWD scam, Sunita Kejriwal had hit out on Baijal and asked him to stop ‘harassing’ her widow sister ‘besides the constant harassment of AAP government’ as the former Delhi LG Najeeb Jung is ‘suffering from severe illness and he regretted what he did with AAP government’. She had said that karma never leaves the karta.

But Lamba’s comments are not too surprising since Aam Aadmi Party and its members have a penchant for creating a nuisance. In June this year, during a protest march against the Delhi LG Anil Baijal carried out by Aam Aadmi Party supporters, a poster had reportedly been spotted which read as an ‘appeal’ by all Delhi citizens.

The insensitive poster appeared in a protest march carried out by Aam Aadmi Party.

‘Delhi demands before Atal, take away Anil’. The poster referred to Atal Bihari Vajpayee, former Prime Minister of India, who was undergoing treatment. Vajpayee passed away on 16th August this year.

However, Aam Aadmi Party leaders are not the only ones to link Rafale with Parrikar’s health. Earlier, in a desperate measure, Congress had tried to float a conspiracy connecting Parrikar continuing as a chief minister despite his ailment to ‘Rafale secrets’. Before that, even as Parrikar continued to undergo treatment at AIIMS, Delhi, Goa Congress had approached Goa governor to stake claim to form a government.
