BJP flays Robert Vadra`s `mango men in banana republic` remark

BJP took strong exception to the use of the term `mango man` (aadm admi) for the common man by Robert Vadra.



New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday took strong exception to the use of the term `mango man` (aadm admi) for the common man by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi`s son--in-law Robert Vadra and wondered how he could call India a `banana republic` when Congress is ruling the country.

"What Robert Vadra has said is absolutely atrocious. It shows the mindset of Congress party..... Earlier, Shashi Tharoor (then Minister of State for External Affairs) had used the term cattle class for the common man. Now, Vadra has called them mango people," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar
told reporters in reply to a question.

Vadra had used the words `mango man in a banana republic` on his Facebook.

"He has called India a banana republic when his own party is in power. Congress should explain this," Javadekar said.

Vadra has since closed his Facebook account.

Tharoor had earned the ire of the people when he said on Twitter that he is travelling cattle class in a flight. He was referring to the economy class while expressing his disappointment at not travelling business class.
