The irrepressible Rakhi Sawant is up in arms against AAP politician Raghav Chadha for comparing her to Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Rakhi Sawant, discernibly distressed , says, “What does he mean by saying Sidhuji is the the Rakhi Sawant of politics? My husband Ritesh is very angry by this comment. As it is I am very distressed by my mother’s health. In spite of multiple surgeries and chemotherapy , thanks to Salman Khan and Priya Dutt, my mother is still very unwell. Watching her suffer is unbearable to me. Sometimes I feel she should just be relieved of all the pain. You can’t imagine how difficult it is for me to watch her suffer like this. On top of that, I now have supposedly educated politicians using my name in a derogatory way.Talk to my husband . He is right here.”
Rakhi Sawant hands over the phone to a man who introduces himself as Ritesh, Rakhi Sawant’s husband, “I stay abroad .I’m in India for a meeting. I was in Bengaluru . now I am in Mumbai to support Rakhi in this time of distress. Let me tell you, I take very strong exception to Chadhaji’s tone and language. What does he mean by using my wife’s name in such a demeaning way?To me Rakhi is one of the kindest , nicest most generous people I’ve met. Unhein kissika dukh dekha nahin jaata. If a woman is raped in any part of India her heart bleeds. If she sees a hungry child she weeps like a child. Whatever Rakhi Sawant is today she is self-made. You may find her behaviour strange . But Rakhi is Rakhi. There is no one else like her. To have a politician use a woman’s name in such a cheap way says a lot about how much politicians of our country respect women. Chadhaji should not forget, his mother is also a woman.”
Ritesh wants an unconditional apology from Raghav Chadha. “That, or Rakhi and I will campaign against Chadha’s party in every constituency in the next elections. And the next time, a politician uses my wife’s name we will take the strictest legal action. Please learn to respect women. Or you will be taught a lesson.”
