Nitin Gadkari only BJP leader with guts, should comment on Rafale: Rahul Gandhi

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday (February 4) said Nitin Gadkari is the only Bharatiya Janata Party leader with some guts and asked him to answer questions on Rafale scam, farmers' distress and destruction of institutions.

"Gadkari Ji, compliments! You are the only one in the BJP with some guts. Please also comment on: 1) The Rafale scam and Anil Ambani 2) Farmers' Distress 3) Destruction of Institutions," said the Congress president on Twitter.

Gandhi's comment on the microblogging site came after Gadkari urged party workers to fulfill their domestic responsibilities first. "Those who cannot do that cannot manage the country," said Union minister Gadkari.

Gadkari was addressing a gathering of former workers of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), BJP's student wing, in Nagpur on Saturday.

"I meet many people who say we want to devote our lives for the BJP, for the country," Gadkari added.

"I asked [one such person] what do you do, and who all are there in your family. He said that he [the person] has closed his shop as it was not doing well....there is a wife at home, children," Nitin Gadkari said.

"I said [to him] first take care of your home because one who cannot manage his home cannot manage the country," Nitin Gadkari said.

"Hence first manage your home and look after your children properly, then work for the party and country," he said.
