Robert Vadra insulted India by writing on his Facebook page, "Mango people in banana republic."
IAC member Kumar Vishwas asked him for an apology over the status saying it was an insult to the nation. "Today Robert Vadra has written 'mango people in banana republic' on his Facebook page. He insulted our country because he is related with the most arrogant family ie the Gandhi family. He should apologise before the nation," said Kumar Vishwas.
IAC leader Arvind Kejriwal also slammed Vadra for his 'mango people' remark on his Facebook page. "Evidence pouring in from mango men from across the country. Mango men wud (sic) prove to be nemesis for the "powerful," tweeted Arvind Kejriwal.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra on Monday deleted his Facebook account after a furore over his new status message that read, "Mango people in a banana republic," in an apparent dig at India Against Corruption (IAC) member Arvind Kejriwal and senior Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan, who on Friday, exposed acts of corruption by Robert Vadra.
On Monday, soon after Vadra posted his Facebook status, IAC member Kumar Vishwas demanded an apology from him.
"Vadra's mother-in-law has been ruling the country so he should explain why India is being called a "banana republic," Kumar Vishwas said.
It is interesting to note that Vadra used his Facebook page to break his silence on the allegations made against him by Kejriwal. "Thanks for the concern, I can handle all the negativity. I have lost people I loved. What can be worse than that," he had posted.
