Congress leader Sheila Dikshit has clarified her earlier remark about party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, saying he has “the sensitivity of a mature leader”.
The former Delhi chief minister, Dikhsit, in a newspaper interview on Friday said Gandhi was “still not mature, his age does not allow him to be mature”.
Her comments were quickly lapped up by Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah, who ridiculed Gandhi saying “immature Rahul should be kept at home” instead of being sent to Uttar Pradesh.
However, Dikshit on Friday did a u-turn and took to Twitter to clarify her comment with “Don’t twist my words” hashtag.
“Rahul has the sensitivity and concern of a mature leader. His words are those of a young, courageous and restless man,” Dixit said.
