Ruckus created by TDS MP dangerous for Indian democratic values: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress Party on Thursday said the ruckus created by TDS MP J.C. Diwakar Reddy at the Visakhapatnam airport indicates that the democratic value of the country is in danger.

"It is a red light signal for democratic values. We don't seem to imbibe democratic values either on account of caste or status or money. Such incident is clear indication that the MPs consider themselves superior than the common people," senior advocate and Congress leader K.T.S. Tulsi told ANI.

"I look at this to an indication that our democratic values and constitutional values have not seeped into the veins of even the elected leaders," he added.

Echoing similar sentiments, another Congress leader Pradeep Bhattacharya said, "No MP should behave like this. It is very unfortunate if any MP thinks that he is above law and can do anything."

Meanwhile, Reddy asserted that he did not misbehave with the officer of Indigo.

"I did not assault any official and use any abusive language. Just asked the officer to come out," Reddy said.
