Here are some tweets for you to see for yourself:

This is not the first time the congress leader has indulged in such activities. He has been spotted making similar statements from time to time, be it referring to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir as India-occupied-Kashmir or calling terrorist Osama Bin Laden as "Osamaji".

The Congress high command is keeping its mum on the issue while a spokesperson has distanced the party from the statement saying, “One should restrain from using unparliamentary language while making any statement; should use sober language. Sober language is the soul of the party."

So far, there is no word on any actions against the senior Congress leader.
