Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi gave a sarcastic twist to Farooq Abdullah's latest comment on Rahul Gandhi. While the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister remarked that the Congress President is no longer a 'Pappu' (fool), Naqvi stated that the Gandhi scion has become 'Gappu' (chatterbox) from 'Pappu'.

On Friday, December 21, Abdullah had stated that Gandhi is no longer a 'Pappu' after proving his mettle as a leader by emerging victorious in the recently concluded assembly elections in three Hindi heartland states.
