Hours after Maharashtra minister Yashomati Thakur asked the MVA government to stop commenting on the Congress leadership, the BJP attacked both the NCP and Congress.
BJP leader Ram Kadam took a dig at Sharad Pawar and said that even though the NCP supremo questions Rahul Gandhi’s leadership, the NCP is in power in Maharashtra with the support of Congress. Ram Kadam was referring to Sharad Pawar’s recent remark on Rahul Gandhi where the NCP chief had said that the Congress leader appeared to lack consistency when it came to the question of being accepted as a leader by the country.
“Sharad Pawar has worked with the Congress for a long time and he has his political experience and with that, he comments on the leadership of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. On one hand, he (Sharad Pawar) comments on Rahul Gandhi but, on the other hand, they (NCP) are in power in Maharashtra with the support of the same party,” Ram Kadam said.
Ram Kadam said that Congress doesn’t care about the development of the nation and was simply running after the Gandhi family inspite of the fact that several questions have been raised on the leadership of Rahul Gandhi.
“Even Barak Obama had raised questions on the leadership of Rahul Gandhi. For the sake of the nation we want to ask Congress for how long will they run after one family and when will their eyes open for the development of the nation is our question,” Ram Kadam said.
Earlier, Congress leader Yashomati Thakur put out a strong-worded tweet which many say is an indication of the widening rift among the MVA parties.
“Being a working president of MPCC I must appeal colleagues in MVA if you want stable govt in maharashtra then stop commenting leadership of Congress. Everybody should follow basic rules of coalition,” Yashomati Thakur tweeted.
“Our leadership is very strong and stable. Formation of MVA is result of our strong belief in democratic values,” Yashomati Thakur said on Twitter.
The Congress workers are reportedly agitated with the comments of NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, who in an recent interview to a regional media, had said that Rahul Gandhi appeared to lack consistency when it came to the question of being accepted as a leader by the country.
