Jhappi yes, pappi no: Sanjay

Kanpur: Days after apologising to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for his remarks, actor and Samajwadi Party leader Sanjay Dutt said on Thursday that he was still ready to give her “jadu ki jhappi” (magical hug).

“FIRs are distributed like sweets in Uttar Pradesh, but I will not be cowed down… I will give sister Mayawati ‘jadu ki jhappi’ and flowers but not ‘pappi’ [kiss] as it is reserved for the people of the state,” Mr. Dutt said at an election rally in Akbarpur.

An angry Ms. Mayawati had attacked the Samajwadi Party, calling it a gathering of people who are good at little else other than singing, dancing and fake ‘Gandhigiri.’

“Behenji says Gandhigiri is fake,” Mr. Dutt said on Thursday. “Does that mean Mahatma Gandhi too was a fake? We have forgiven her. The more she gets angry with me, the more “jhappi” [hugs] will I give her. I will give her flowers too.” — PTI
