As the nation is coming together for the Lok Sabha 2019 elections, a war of words between actor cum politician Raj Babbar and his opponent Guddu Pandit from Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh’s Fatehpur Sikri took place during a rally on Monday. The BSP candidate had used an offensive language against Raj Babbar calling his supporters dogs. Raj Babbar hit back at his BSP opponent, saying he could not really compete with a person who shows “no decency” while speaking.
At a rally to campaign for the national election, the BSP candidate had used the most offensive language while targeting Raj Babbar, calling his supporters dogs. “Sunn lo Raj Babbar ke kutton, tumko aur tumare neta nachaniya ko dauda dauda ke jooton se maarunga jo jhoott faelaya samaaj mein. Jahan milega, Ganga maa ki saugandh tujhe jooton se maarunga, tujhe aur tere dalaalon ko (Listen Raj Babbar’s dogs, I will beat you and your leaders with shoes if lies are spread in the society. Wherever I find you, I swear on Ganga I will beat you and your middlemen with shoes.”
On Tuesday, Raj Babbar hit back, said that he had no message for “a person who shows no decency while speaking and uses bad language”. He added: “His parents would have given him advice. If that did not get through to him then who is Raj Babbar to say anything to him?” Not only Guddu Pandit but BJP’s Yogi Adityanath, Union Minister Maneka Gandhi and BSP chief Mayawati along with Himachal Pradesh’s BJP chief Satpal Singh Satti too have been punished for their statements.
