BJP MLA Refers AAP's Amanatullah Khan as Terrorist
OP Sharma, a BJP MLA from Vishwas Nagar in East Delhi, has kicked up a row after he described Amanatullah Khan of AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) as a terrorist. The incident took place during a discussion on bureaucracy in the Assembly. Sharma stated to AAP that “You say we are protecting bureaucrats, but that is not the case. If an officer does something wrong, we know better than you how to fix errant officers.” At this Khan stood up to object to his words. And the BJP MLA retorted by saying that “If you do something wrong, you will also go to jail like terrorists. Why are you talking nonsense? Why are you talking like terrorists? Talk like a man, not like a terrorist. Why are you behaving like a terrorist? Behave like a man. Don’t mess with me! Don’t be a Fanney Khan! Sit down and behave like a man!”2018-08-07 03:48:05 PM
