Ravi's 'hospital' tweet on Sonia angers state Cong

Congress leaders in Karnataka have taken objection to BJP MLA C T Ravi’s three tweets on AICC leader Sonia Gandhi’s hospitalisation abroad.

On March 9, Ravi, MLA from Chikkamagaluru, tweeted, “Shameless Gandhis ruled India for almost 6 decades & yet they couldn’t build a hospital in India where Sonia Gandhi could get treated”. Later, he tweeted to @office of Rahul Gandhi, “Admit his mother Sonia to Victoria Hospital in Benglauru? @CMofKarnataka would definitely take good care of her.” 

In another tweet, he said, “Wondering if Sonia Gandhi has travelled abroad for medical treatment or transferring funds from her present accounts to safer places.” Sonia Gandhi went abroad on March 9 reportedly for a health checkup.

Reacting strongly to Ravi’s tweets, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told reporters that Ravi’s statements are irresponsible. Sonia Gandhi sacrificed the prime minister’s post for the sake of the country. One should be responsible while commenting against such persons, he said.

State Congress working president Dinesh Gundu Rao termed the BJP MLA a “pervert”. “Ravi keeps talking about Hindutva. But how appropriate are his comments against the Congress leader? It is not fair to make such comments. This also shows his lack of respect for women,” he added. His tweet read - “...exposes his sick mindset. Its a reflection of the garbage that occupies his brain. Sad he is stooping to such low levels.”

Energy Minister D K Shivakumar said arrangements should be made to get Ravi admitted to a mental hospital for making such comments against a leader who gave up the prime minister’s post twice.
