New Delhi: In what appears to be a compliment, the President of Congress, Rahul, praised the Union Minister, Nitin Gadkari, for being the only one in the BJP with “guts”.
Soon after, as if he were setting a trap, Rahul asked him to comment on the Rafale agreement, the labor crisis, the anguish of the farmers and the destruction of the institutions.
Gandhi’s statements came after Gadkari’s remarks that “who can not take care of their home can not run the country.”
The minister returned the blow to Gandhi, saying he does not need a certificate from him for his courage and claimed that the head of Congress is taking the help of reports “twisted” by the media to attack his government.
The president of the Congress cited a report that quotes Gadkari as saying that party workers must first fulfill their domestic responsibilities, since “those who can not do so can not manage the country.”
“Gadkari Ji, congratulations, you’re the only one in the BJP with some guts, please comment on: The Rafale and Anil Ambani scam, the anguish of the farmers and the destruction of the institutions,” Gandhi tweeted and tagged the report on Gadkari’s comments.
“Oops, Gadkari Ji. A great apology, I forgot the most important one … WORK! WORK! WORK! WORK!” He said later in a tweet.
The minister of the Union made the remarks on Saturday while addressing former workers of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the BJP, in Nagpur.
Gadkari took to Twitter to answer the head of Congress.
“Rahul Gandhi Ji, I do not need a certificate from you in my courage, but it’s a surprise that, even after being the president of a national party, I have to take the help of news distorted by the media to attack our government ., “Gadkari tweeted.
The comments of the congressional chief who praised Gadkari came after several other congressional leaders praised the Union minister for his recent statements that they consider a blow to the leadership of the BJP.
Congress spokesman Manish Tewari praised Gadkari last week for his comments that “leaders who do not keep their promises are ‘beaten’ by the people,” but at the same time they told him that his goal was prime minister Narendra. Modi and his eyes in the prime minister’s chair.
In December, Gadkari had said at an event in Pune that leadership should have the tendency to take defeat and failures. The comments came days after the loss of the BJP in the polls of the assembly of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
On Republic Day, Rahul Gandhi was seen exchanging notes with Gadkari while sitting with him in the front row at the Republic Day parade in Rajpath.
