The AAP leader Raghav Chadha has been tagged as a misogynist following his latest remark for Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, where he called Sidhu “the Rakhi Sawant Of Punjab Politics”. Chadha was himself trying to slam Sidhu for his criticism towards Arvind Kejriwal regarding the farm laws.
Chadha’s Tweet for Sidhu
Chadha had quote-tweeted a video of Sidhu, where Sidhu spoke about the exploitation of farmers with decreasing prices even on MSP announced crops. Sidhu tweets, “Arvind Kejriwal you notified the Private Mandi’s central black law! Has it been de-notified or is the masquerading still going on?” Sidhu tweets.
Chadha further adds that Sidhu “had received a scolding from Congress High Command” for criticizing Capt Amrinder Singh earlier so now he is after Kejriwal.
The Rakhi Sawant of Punjab politics -Navjot Singh Sidhu- has received a scolding from Congress high command for non stop rant against Capt. Therefore today,for a change, he went after Arvind Kejriwal. Wait till tomorrow for he shall resume his diatribe against Capt with vehemence https://t.co/9SDr8js8tA

From celebs to common men, Raghav Chadha slammed
There has been outrage since his tweet. People have come out in support of Ex Bigg Boss Contestant Rakhi Sawant, calling her the most hard-working and entertaining in the film industry.
Former AAP leader, Alka Lamba, expressed her dislike towards the same saying that this shows the mentality of the AAP leaders of Delhi towards women. Others pointed out how unnecessary it was to drag and defame a woman for dirty politics.
अभी तक #AAP के विधायक चड्ढा ने ना तो अपना ट्वीट हटाया है ना ही राखी को आहत करने पर उससे माफ़ी ही माँगी है,
जिससे साफ़ होता है कि एक महिला का इस तरह से अपमान करने को लेकर पार्टी की बाकी महिला विधायकों/नेता और मुख्यमंत्री केजरीवाल जी का भी पूरा समर्थन मिल रहा है।

Sidhu replied back with a tweet saying, “they say man descended from the apes and the monkeys, looking at your mind @raghav_chadha I believe you are still descending! you still haven’t answered my question about notifying the farm laws by your Government.
Swati Chaturvedi asks the leader to apologize to Rakhi and tells how unexpected was this behaviour from him, she says, ” didn’t expect this awful misogyny from you Raghav. You have to conflate an insult to a rival with a woman. Shameful. Apologies to Rakhi Sawant”.

Many other celebs like Kavita Kaushik, Gurpreet Kaur Chaddha came out to stand up for Rakhi. Kavita calls Rakhi to be a “compliment” and talks about how hard she works, converting even the biggest flops into entertaining.
Rakhi Sawant’s response
While people came in support of her, Rakhi herself had a savage reply lined up for the AAP Leader.

And the fight continues
Meanwhile, the power brawl in Punjab hasn’t ended. Earlier, Sidhu had asked the Punjab CM Capt Amrinder Singh about dropping unfair FIRs against farmer unions, to which he replied by saying the farmers should carry forward their protest to the national capital. This wasn’t taken well by the farmer unions who criticized him regarding the same.
