Haryana minister Anil Vij stoked another controversy on Thursday, saying that all Congress leaders have the DNA for doing ‘wrong things’.

“All Congress leaders have DNA for wrongdoings,” Vij tweeted.

Vij, on Thursday, had taken a dig at Congress president Sonia Gandhi for her comment that she was not afraid of anyone as she was the daughter-in-law of late prime minister Indira Gandhi.

“Everyone knows that Congress leaders are not afraid of doing wrong things. The DNA of all of you (Congress people) is the same,” Vij tweeted.

In yet another tweet, the health minister in the BJP government, who is known to even take on his own government at times, also took a dig at Indira Gandhi.

“This is the same Indira Gandhi who crushed all democratic rights to impose Emergency. Her soul is still alive among all Congress leaders,” he wrote.

In one of his recent tweets, Vij had attacked Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and his brother-in-law Robert Vadra, advising Rahul to quit politics and start property-dealing business with Vadra, even suggesting the name of the venture -- “Rahul and Vadra properties”.

Vij tweeted, “Rahul should quit politics and open property dealing shop with his brother-in-law Robert Vadra -- Rahul and Vadra properties.”

The controversial tweets have come at a time when Congress members continued their protest against alleged “vendetta politics” in the National Herald case.

Vij has been critical of the Nehru-Gandhi family on many occasions in the past as well.

In one of his tweet in April this year, Vij, while commenting on Rahul Gandhi’s journey by train to meet farmers in Punjab, wrote, “after looking at the pictures of Rahul Gandhi sitting in a train like a terrified and scared child, which appeared in today’s newspapers (in April), it appears like a child had run away from his home”.

Through his numerous tweets, Vij has also criticised Robert Vadra over his company’s land deals in Haryana.
