Kavinder slams Vikar for belittling coveted Padma Vibhushan award

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Dec 3: Senior BJP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister, Kavinder Gupta on Saturday slammed Congress' J&K President Vikar Rasool Wani for insulting the prestigious national award Padma Vibhushan, which the nation confers to those who have rendered exceptional and distinguished service in their respective fields. In a statement issued to media persons, the senior BJP functionary said that Congress leadership has gone out of mind due to persistent debacles in polls and party's internal conflicts.
Kavinder was referring to remark by Vikar Wani whereby he has said that former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad had left the party for mere Padma Vibhushan and after getting impressed by the crocodile tears shed by PM Narendra Modi in the Parliament in praise of G.N Azad. He said that statements by Wani, Mallikarjun Kharge and Sonia Gandhi against the Prime Minister are testimony to the fact that Congress leadership has turned desperate and frustrated due to the dismal performance of the party and departure of the senior party leaders.
Kavinder asserted that J&K Congress President should come up with an unconditional apology as he has insulted all the Padma Vibhushan awardees, despite the fact that this is the second highest civilian award of the country after Bharat Ratna. He said that the way the Congress' J&K chief has belittled this coveted award it seems that he is politically immature and doesn't deserve the post of the party chief. He said that Padma Vibhushan is not a street level award and the way the Congress leadership has stooped so low on the issue can be described as uncalled for and unacceptable.
The former Deputy Chief Minister said that this is not the first time that Congress leadership has not maintained the decorum as earlier Congress President Kharge has used vulgar language against PM Modi by terming him Ravaan while other Congress leaders termed Modi as 'thief', which tells the sick mindset of the oldest political party of the country. He said that such kind of intolerable behaviour by the Congress leadership shows that this party is a sinking ship and heading towards extinction.
