New Delhi: External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday asked Congress chief Rahul Gandhi to “maintain decorum” in his political speeches, saying she had been “deeply hurt” by his remarks on BJP stalwart L.K. Advani.

“Rahulji — Advaniji is our father figure. Your words have hurt us deeply. Please try to maintain some decorum of your speech,” Ms Swaraj tweeted.

 

According to media reports, Mr Gandhi, while addressing a public meeting in Chandrapur, Maharashtra,  on Friday had taken a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of having “booted out” Mr Advani. The reference was to the fact that Mr Advani had not been given a ticket by the party to contest the Gandhigagar Lok Sabha seat from where he had won earlier.
