‘Khoda pahad nikli chuhiya’, CM Khattar takes a dig at Sonia Gandhi becoming Congress President, Congress hops mad

In August this year, after months-long drama, despite Rahul Gandhi's insistence that Congress President should be a younger leader, eventually his 72-year-old mother was made the party president. 

In a frontal attack on Congress, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar while addressing a rally in Nissing, Karnal, on Sunday said that Congress cannot think beyond the ‘family’.

Taking a dig at the Gandhi family, CM Khattar said, “After the 2019 general elections defeat, Rahul Gandhi resigned as party president and called to get a non-Gandhi as the party president. We were happy that finally the party is moving away from nepotism. They went around the country to find a new party president but then after three months made Sonia Gandhi the party president. Khoda pahad aur nikli chuiya, aur woh bhi mari hui (you dig a mountain and find a rat, that too a dead one),” Khattar said.

This statement of Haryana CM ML Khattar has Congress hopping mad. All India Mahila Congress President Sushmita Dev called it shameful and said that BJP is a party full of ‘rabid misogynists’.

Congress leader Ruchira Chaturvedi called Khattar’s statement a tactic divert attention.

Mahila Congress through its official account also chimed in.

Former AAP MLA and new recruit in Congress, Alka Lamba referred to Khattar’s statement as ‘neech soch‘ on women.

Khattar, when he said ‘khoda pahad, nikli chuhiya’, was using a very popular idiom which means that despite all the strong buildup for something, the outcome was very disappointing. In August this year, after months-long drama, despite Rahul Gandhi’s insistence that Congress President should be a younger leader, eventually his 72-year-old mother was made the party president.

The last time she became Congress president, the then Congress chief Sitaram Kesri was reportedly locked up in a bathroom in Congress headquarters at Akbar Road so he could not stop Sonia Gandhi from entering the office with her supporters to take over as the party president.

This is not the first time Khattar has attacked Sonia Gandhi. Last week, while addressing a rally in Jhajjar in Haryana had accused Congress of sympathising with terrorists and that Sonia had shed tears for militants. Senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid had said that following the Batla House encounter where Indian Mujahideen terrorists were killed, upon seeing the pictures Sonia Gandhi had cried ‘bitterly’.

Haryana state will go for assembly polls on 21st October along with Maharashtra. The results will be declared on 24th October.
