Bollywood actress Richa Chadha has been accused of insulting the Army in her recent post on Twitter. Northern Army Commander Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi’s statement on Tuesday comes in the context of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh’s earlier statement that India aims to reclaim Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Defense Minister said that ‘We have started our journey of development in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. We will achieve our goal when we reach Gilgit and Baltistan.’ Commenting on this statement, Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi said that ‘Indian Army is always ready to implement the orders of the government. The Indian Army will follow any order given by the Government of India. Whenever such orders are given, we will always be ready for it,” Richa Chadha wrote in response to the tweet. ‘Galwan Says Hi’
Angry people vented their anger
People say that the Indian army fought bravely with the Chinese army in the Galwan Valley and Richa Chadha has mocked not only their bravery but the country’s army. Richa Chadha is being mocked on social media. BJP has also targeted him. BJP leader Manjinder Singh termed Richa Chadha’s tweet as shameful and said that it is not right to insult our armed forces in this way.
It may be mentioned that in June 2020, Indian soldiers clashed with Chinese soldiers in Galwan Valley in which 20 Indian soldiers were martyred. Several Chinese soldiers were also killed in the hours-long clash but China has never released the exact number of soldiers lost in the fighting.
BJP leader called third grade actress, demanded action
Apart from this, Manjinder Singh has also shared a video on Twitter. In which he has called Richa Chadha a ‘third grade’ actress and demanded legal action against her. While sharing the video, he wrote that ‘A third grade Bollywood actress like Richa Chadha is insulting the Indian Army for a little publicity stunt. His anti-India thinking is clearly visible in this tweet. I demand legal action against him from Mumbai police.
However, Richa Chadha has locked her account as users lashed out in social media. Only followers he can approve can see his tweets.
