On Tuesday, one of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s close associates was severely criticized after appearing to abuse a journalist who wanted to ask questions of the secretary general of the AICC.
The reporter wanted to ask Priyanka Gandhi a few questions but once Gandhi’s offspring refused, his aide Sandeep Singh can be seen threateningly saying in the video: “Suno Suno, Thok ke yahi baja dunga, marunga toh yehi gir jaoge).
Meanwhile, the reporter can be heard appealing to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in the video.
The man identified in the video appears to Sandeep Singh, a former AISA student member who was on Rahul Gandhi’s team and is now with his sister.
Singh, while he was AISA, the student victory of CPI (ML), had during his days JNU famously showed a black flag to former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2005 for his “anti-popular” policies.
After leaving JNU he was active in the movement led by Anna Hazare-Arvind Kejriwal for Lokpal and then joined Congress as a speechwriter.
Commentators have said that Rahul’s speeches have taken a left turn since Singh’s enthronement and now it appears he is working with Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
Sandeep Singh’s behavior is inappropriate. He’s downright aggressive. He threatens to beat the journalist. https://t.co/7MieQHMY3e

Marunga … Thok ke baja doonga … BJP se paisa le ke aaye ho …
This, from Priyanka Gandhi’s personal manager to a reporter who was just doing his job – asking questions.
New Congress for you, ladies and gentlemen! https://t.co/b2L5EEYdIg

This is the true face of the Congress party; anti-Indian communist thugs like Sandeep Singh have been promoted by Priyanka / Rahul and they are corroding the party from within … the hatred Sandeep has for Hinduism is unprecedented! https://t.co/6UuXMQ9SQ8

Glad to see the Congressional Loons defending this …
I wonder what the “Sewa Dal Congressional Newspapers” have to say about this … https://t.co/VpxZcyCbpb

She could have told the ABP reporter or said that she had already spoken on the issue. Today’s incident was unnecessary.

This pathetic behavior towards a journalist is that of a man called Sandeep Singh. For those who don’t know, Sandeep is a former JNU student, who has apparently “advised” and written speeches for Rahul and Priyanka. PS- Sandeep in 2005 showed black flags to Prime Minister Manmohan.

Rahul is stupid like his father but Priyanka is stupid and arrogant like his mother. https://t.co/62pcqFGshj
