‘Chowkidar to Nepal se bhi mangwa sakte hai’: AAP MLA Alka Lamba’s casual racism against Nepalis draw flak

Alka Lamba continues to be tone deaf and insensitive.

Aam Aadmi Party MLA Alka Lamba, who has earlier taken to Twitter to express her displeasure at being unfollowed by AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal followed by removal from WhatsApp group, today took to the social media platform to be casually racist against Nepalis.

In a bid to take a dig on Prime Minister Modi and toeing the Congress President line of referring to PM Modi as ‘chowkidar’ (watchman), Lamba said, “Dear Indians, this time, please elect a Prime Minister. You can get a watchman to Nepal also. Watchmen from Nepal are not theives.” She then added a winking emoji as if she has said the wittiest thing ever.

Her casually racist tweet, however, has not gone down well with people. She was criticised for her condescending remarks insulting an entire community.

Some thought of returning in kind.

People from Nepal, too, didn’t take it lightly and were upset, rightly so.

Her casual racism and blatant stereotyping has not gone down well and has received severe backlash even on other platforms.

This is not the first time Lamba has displayed her insensitivity. In November last year, she made a crass comment on Goa Chief Minister Parrikar’s health to spread canards about Rafale deal. Once, when a fire broke out in Chandni Chowk, the constituency she represents in the state assembly, she climbed the ladder of the fire brigade, delaying the rescue operations. Furthering her insensitivity, she later laughed on Twitter while sharing the news.
