Rakhi Sawant and husband lash out at AAP leader, threaten legal action
The irrepressible Rakhi Sawant is up in arms against AAP politician Raghav Chadha for comparing her to Navjot Singh Sidhu
The irrepressible Rakhi Sawant is up in arms against AAP politician Raghav Chadha for comparing her to Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Rakhi, 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 hands over the phone to a man who introduces himself as Ritesh, Rakhi’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 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.”
