Controversy over the statement of the actress

Social media users criticized him for insulting the clash between India and China in 2020. Expressing their anger on this, people wrote that our soldiers who were martyred in Galvan are being made fun of. However, seeing the ruckus, Richa Chadha deleted her tweet and apologized.
Actress Chadha apologized
Richa apologized for this and said that my intention was not to insult the army with the tweet. My 3 words were dragged into the controversy. Sorry if anyone got offended. He said that my grandfather himself was in the army and held the rank of lieutenant colonel. He was shot in the leg during the Indo-China war. My maternal uncle was also a paratrooper and it is in my blood. If someone is martyred in the army, the whole family is affected. Even if someone gets injured in the army, it hurts. It is an emotional issue for me.
It is not right to insult the army: BJP
BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa has called Richa’s tweet derogatory. He has written that this tweet should be withdrawn as soon as possible. It is not right to insult our armed forces.
