BJP leader: Rahul Gandhi’s whole family on bail, can’t call Modi a chor

BJP MLA from Himachal Pradesh, and state party President, Satpal Singh Satti, at a speech to party workers, gave rise to controversy when he condemned Congress President Rahul Gandhi for calling PM Modi a “chor”. 
Gandhi has been taking jibes at Modi’s statement where the PM called himself a “chowkidar”, by saying “chowkidar chor hai”. Satti appeared to take serious offence at this, and launched a scathing attack on Gandhi and his family.
The BJP MLA, directing his words at Gandhi, alleged that Gandhi’s mother, UPA chairperson, Sonia Gandhi is out on bail, Rahul Gandhi himself is out on bail  (referring to the AgustaWestland case), Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra is out on bail (referring to the recent Bikaner land scam case). Satti went on to say that Gandhi has no right to call the PM a thief, as “no case has either been filed against him, nor he is out on bail, nor did any judge give him any punishment”. Satti wondered how and why Gandhi considers himself a judge, labelling the PM a thief. He also allegedly threatened to “cut off Gandhi’s tongue”, along with abusing him in derogatory language. 
Congress demanded an apology from the BJP leader, but he refused. An FIR has been filed against him by the Himachal Pradesh police, and the state Election Commission has served a notice to him.
