Actress Richa Chadha, who courted controversy by referring to the 2020 Galwan Valley clash in her tweet, apologized on Thursday. Richa deleted that tweet as well. In this tweet, he responded to the statement of Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi, Commander of the Northern Command of the Army. The military officer had said that the Indian Army is waiting for orders from the government to regain control of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). In response to this, Richa wrote, ‘Galvan is saying hi.’
After this, many people slammed the actress on Twitter and accused her of making fun of the martyrdom of Indian soldiers. Later
Richa Chadha said that she did not want to hurt the sentiments of the Indian Army. She said, ‘It was not my intention at all, yet the three words on which the controversy is being created, if anyone has been hurt, I apologize and also say that if my words hurt the army even without intention. If I have any such feeling inside my brothers, then I am sorry. My maternal grandfather was also in the army.
