New Delhi, Feb 4 : Complimenting BJP leader Nitin Gadkari for his comments that “those who cannot take care of their homes cannot manage the country” -- seen as an apparent reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi -- Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday urged the Union Minister to also comment on issues like Rafale Scam, farmers’ distress and destruction of Institutions.
In a post on Twitter, Rahul said, "Gadkari Ji, compliments! You are the only one in the BJP with some guts. Please also comment on: 1. The #RafaleScam & Anil Ambani 2. Farmers’ Distress 3. Destruction of Institutions.’’
Speaking at a gathering of former workers of the BJP's students' wing, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), on Saturday, Mr Gadkari, in remarks apparently directed at PM, said the party workers should fulfill their domestic responsibilities first because those who cannot do that cannot manage the country.
“I meet many people who say we want to devote our lives for the BJP, for the country. I asked (one such person) what do you do, and who all are there in your family. He said I have closed my shop as it was not doing well…. there is wife at home, children,” Gadkari said.
“I said (to him) first take care of your home, because one who cannot manage his home cannot manage the country. Hence first manage your home and look after your children properly, then work for the party and country,” he said.(UNI)
