AAP leader Raghav Chadha's Rakhi Sawant tweet receive flak from netizens

New Delhi/IBNS: A tweet by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s Raghav Chadha, where he called Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu "the Rakhi Sawant" of the state's politics, has triggered outrage online.

Furious Twitter users called out at Chadha for a display of "despicable misogyny" and demanded an apology for Sawant.

Chadha's sexist tweet came after Sidhu earlier in the day posted a tweet mocking Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over his government's notification (in December last year) of one of the centre's three contentious farm laws.

"The Rakhi Sawant of Punjab politics - Navjot Singh Sidhu - has received a scolding from (the) Congress high command for non-stop rant against Capt. (Chief Minister Amarinder Singh) ... therefore today, for a change, he went after Arvind Kejriwal," Raghav Chadha tweeted in response.

"Wait till tomorrow for he shall resume his diatribe against Capt. with vehemence," he said.

Sidhu also responded telling Chadha: "They say man descended from the apes and the monkeys, Looking at your mind Raghav Chadha... I believe you are still descending."

He then reminded Chadha saying: "You still haven't answered my question about notifying the farm laws..."

Chadha's tweet didn't go well among Twitter users as well with former AAP member Alka Lamba, who is a Congress leader now, saying the comment showed the mentality of the AAP, and that she equated it with the RSS's thinking.

Some of the other tweets criticising Raghav Chadha are:
