Panned for IAS tweet, Uma Bharati writes to Digvijaya Singh, says will improve her language

In the video, Uma Bharti had said bureaucracy is nothing. Bureaucracy is there to pick up chappals (slippers). It picks up our slippers. We only allow that.

Senior BJP leaders and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti on Wednesday wrote a letter to Congress veteran Digvijaya Singh after her controversial statement on bureaucracy went viral on social media. In the letter to Singh, Bharti said she is deeply hurt by her own words and that she will improver her language from now on. She also urged Singh to improve his language if he can.

In the video, Uma Bharti had said bureaucracy is nothing. Bureaucracy is there to pick up chappals (slippers). It picks up our slippers. We only allow that.

As a video containing Uma Bharti’s critical comments against the bureaucracy surfaced on social media on Monday, Singh had criticised her for telling him to speak less, while she herself used highly objectionable words against bureaucrats. He had also sought an apology from her over her comments.

I used to tell you (Digvijaya Singh) repeatedly that you don’t use moderate language… I will improve my language from now on, if you can do the same, then do it, Uma Bharti wrote in the letter.

She also quoted a Ramayan verse in the letter.

Digvijay Singh tweeted on the controversial statement of Uma Bharti and wrote: Bureaucracies in the Indian Constitution are committed to act impartially under the rules and regulations. They are not your servants, they are not the people who lift the slippers. You have been a Union Minister, you have been the Chief Minister, you should not make such remarks. You must apologise.

After a video containing Uma Bharti’s critical comments against bureaucracy surfaced on social media, the former Union Minister had on Monday expressed regret over her intemperate language used during an interaction with a delegation of representatives from other backward classes (OBCs) at her home in Bhopal.
