Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra slammed BJP MP Subramanian Swamy for his controversial ‘waiters’ remarks. Taking a dig at his tweet saying ‘ministers wearing coat and tie look like waiters,’ Vadra said that the comment clearly undermines the waiters who work hard for the livelihood.
In his recent Facebook post, Vadra termed his remarks as deplorable and classist.
Calling Swamy as the “attention seeking MP,” Vadra said that his comment is mere condescending and derogatory,, since it made fun of waiters and their profession.
His Facebook post reads:
“So is there no dignity in being a Waiter ?! The attention seeking BJP MP Swamy`s comment `Ministers who wear a coat and tie look like waiters and must be instructed to wear Indian clothes`. Undermining waiters who work hard for a living; making condescending and derogatory remarks about them is deplorable and classist.”
Earlier , taking a swipe at Arun Jaitley who appeared in a lounge suit in Beijing in this week, Swamy has said that the BJP leaders should direct its ministers to wear traditional Indian clothes, while in abroad.
“BJP should direct our ministers to wear traditional and modernised Indian clothes while abroad. In coat and tie they look like waiters,” he wrote on Twitter.
