New Delhi: Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Monday took strong exception to his party man Sandeep Dikshit's remarks in which he accused Army chief Bipin Rawat of making statements like a "sadak ka gunda" (a street thug).

However, Dikshit later recanted his remark, apologising for the comparison he drew on Sunday evening.

Rahul, while speaking at a party event in Bengaluru, said: "It's absolutely wrong. No politician is required to comment on the Army Chief."

Congress Vice-President rebuked Dikshit after his bizarre analogy created ripples across the political divide and invited sharp criticism to the leader and the party. Immediately after Rahul expressed dismay over Dikshit's remarks, the leader was apologetic for having used "uncivilised words"

Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tore into the Congress party, accusing it of "not taking notice of such remarks over the years".

"The Congress party seems to be constantly following a pattern through which it questions the integrity of the Indian Army, shames it, and demoralises it."

In a recent interview the Army chief, while speaking about the Kashmir unrest, had suggested that it would have been easier for the armed forces if the protesters were firing weapons instead of throwing stones.

Rawat had said: "In fact, I wish these people instead of throwing stones at us, were firing weapons at us. Then I would have been happy. Then I could do what I (want to do)."
