The Security Guards’ Association of Maharashtra, hurt by Rahul Gandhi’s “Chowkidaar Chor Hai” jibe, has requested the Mumbai Police to register a case against the Congress President.
The Maharashtra Rajya Suraksha Rakshak Union submitted an application at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) police station in Mumbai on Monday, saying that the remark was an insult to security guards, a police official was quoted as saying.
Union president Sandeep Ghuge said police should register an offence against the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty to stop “such kind of slogans insulting the security guards.” The Union said that Rahul Gandhi had made the remark during a rally at the MMRDA grounds in the city earlier this month.
The Congress President has been making the remark regularly on social media and at his rallies as he continues to lie about the Rafale Deal. Last year in December, some overzealous Congress workers, inspired by their party President, had breached security at the Taj Mahal to raise slogans of “Chowkidar Chor Hai”.
The Congress President isn’t the only one who has been making insensitive remarks involving Chowkidars. On Tuesday, AAP leader Alka Lamba had drawn flak after making racist remarks against Nepali citizens. She had said, “Dear Indians, this time, please elect a Prime Minister. You can get a watchman from Nepal too. Watchmen from Nepal are not thieves.”
