External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is apparently hurt by comments made by Congress president Rahul Gandhi on BJP patriarch L K Advani. Sushma hence has sked Rahul Gandhi to maintain some decorum in his comments.
Rahul Gandhi had accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of humiliating Advani, saying disrespecting one’s guru is not Hindu culture.
Addressing a poll rally at Chandrapur in Maharashtra, Gandhi had said, “BJP talks of Hinduism. In Hinduism, guru is supreme. It talks of guru-shishya tradition. Who is Modi’s guru? Advani. Joota maar ke stage se utara (Advani was kicked out from stage).”
Swaraj tweeted: “Rahulji – Advani ji is our father figure. Your words have hurt us deeply. Please try to maintain some decorum of your speech.”
राहुल जी – अडवाणी जी हमारे पिता तुल्य हैं. आपके बयान ने हमें बहुत आहत किया है. कृपया भाषा की मर्यादा रखने की कोशिश करें. #Advaniji
Rahulji – Advani ji is our father figure. Your words have hurt us deeply. Please try to maintain some decorum of your speech. #Advaniji

It may be re-called that BJP did not give L K Advani Lok Sabha ticket from Gandhinager, a constituency he represented since 1998 but replaced him with party chief Amit Shah. Marking the generational change in the BJP and the power of the Modi- Shah duo .
