BJP leader Tejasvi Surya targeted Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for smiling and applauding Punjab Chief Minister Channi’s remark asking people not to let the ”bhaiyas” of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Delhi enter the state.


Channi made the controversial remark during a poll rally in Rupnagar on Tuesday. In a video circulating on social media, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was seen beside Channi clapping when he made the remarks.

”Priyanka Gandhi is the daughter-in-law of Punjab. Will not let the ‘Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi de bhaiye’, who have come here to rule, enter the state,” the incumbent chief minister of Punjab said.

The word ”bhaiyas” in reference to people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar is generally considered offensive.

Taking to Twitter, shared the video of Channi and targeted Priyanka Gandhi Vadra over this. ”Priyanka Vadra Ji calls herself a daughter of Uttar Pradesh when she visits the state and claps when people of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar are insulted in Punjab. This is her double character and face as well,” Surya said.


AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal termed his Punjab counterpart’s comments ”very shameful”.

”We strongly condemn the wrong comments made against any individual or any particular community,” he replied when asked during a press conference to comment on Channi’s remark.
