Dikshit had called the Army Chief a “goon” after General Rawat had remained unperturbed about academician Partha Chatterjee comparing him with General Dyer, the infamous British General who had ordered the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Dikshit also said that though Pakistan Army Chiefs are known to make brash statements it didn’t suit the Indian Army Chief to talk “like a roadside goon.”

He was reacting to General Rawat statement where he had said  – “See, I am an Army officer, just anything cannot affect me. You have to be prepared to face such…. People can misinterpret (comments made by him). There is no need to react. He (Chatterjee) was trying to draw a reaction from somewhere else. It should not bother me.”
