A week after Bollywood beauties had taken a shot at each other on 'age' factor through Twitter, BJP candidate from city Kirron Kher once again took a dig at AAP's Gulkirat Kaur Panag.
Kirron, while talking to the media at the party office, Kamlam, in Sector 33, on Tuesday virtually called Gul a bimbo, while describing herself brilliant.
She said, "I felt upset when Gul commented on my being 60. For someone who has been a friend, making such statements and then to pretend she did not do, is not in good taste."
Kirron remarked, "You can be bimbo at 30 and brilliant at 60."
Reacting to the comment, Gul said, "I refuse to comment on undignified manipulative propaganda."
Kirron further said, "Before getting AAP ticket, Gul used to tell me to contest from Chandigarh and she will work towards making me victorious."
The BJP candidate also questioned the fielding of Gul by a party demanding plebiscite in Kashmir.
Kirron said she was an army officer's daughter and should not be siding with a party that was demanding plebiscite in the Valley. (Plebiscite refers to direct vote by the electorate of a state or region on some question of national importance) Kirron said AAP leader Prashant Bhushan had demanded referendum on the presence of army in Kashmir. "You cannot join a party where thoughts of people are like anarchists."
Gul is the daughter of Lt Gen HS Panag (retd), who has remained posted in Kashmir and served the country, and is siding with a party whose leader called for a referendum in the Valley to decide whether or not the army should be deployed to deal with internal threats in Kashmir.
Kirron also took pot shots at AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal saying he wanted to protest on Republic Day in Delhi as chief minister. He was choosing a day which was sacred and a proud occasion for Indians.
