Congress leaders ‘have DNA for wrongdoings’: Anil Vij

Outspoken Haryana Minister Anil Vij on Thursday stoked yet another controversy by saying “all Congress leaders have DNA for wrongdoings”.

On Wednesday, in a series of tweets, Vij took a dig at Congrss President Sonia Gandhi for her comment that she was not afraid of anyone as she was the daughter-in-law of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

“Everyone knows that Congress leaders are not afraid of doing wrong things. The DNA of all of you (Congress people) is the same,” Vij tweeted.

In yet another tweet, the Health Minister in the BJP government, who is known to even take on his own government at times, also took a dig at Indira Gandhi.

“This is the same Indira Gandhi who crushed all democratic rights to impose Emergency. Her soul is still alive among all Congress leaders,” he wrote.

In one of his recent tweets, Vij had attacked Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi and his brother-in-law Robert Vadra. He had advised Rahul to quit politics and start property dealing business with Vadra, even suggesting the name of the business venture as “Rahul and Vadra properties”.

Vij had tweeted, “Rahul should quit politics and open property dealing shop with his brother-in-law Robert Vadra– Rahul and Vadra properties.”

The controversial tweets from Vij have come at a time when Congress members continued their protest against alleged “vendetta politics” in the National Herald case. Vij has been critical of the Nehru-Gandhi family on many occasions in the past as well.

In one of his tweet in April this year, Vij, while commenting on Rahul Gandhi’s journey by train to meet farmers in Punjab, wrote, “after looking at the pictures of Rahul Gandhi sitting in a train like a terrified and scared child, which appeared in today’s newspapers (in April), it appears like a child had run away from his home”.

Vij through his numerous tweets has also taken a dig at Robert Vadra over his company’s land deals in Haryana.
