The Congress declared loftily that it would not retaliate to Nitin Gadkari’s blistering attack on its president, Sonia Gandhi. Today, that vow was ignored as the Congress described Mr Gadkari as “a puppet of the RSS.” Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said, ‘He will be consigned to the dustbin once the RSS removes their support from him.”
Mr Gadkari heads the BJP, whose parent body is the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS).
Ms Natarajan then went on to say “Every BJP Chief Minister is a despot and fascist in their state.”
Tit for tat, then. Yesterday, at a BJP function in Kolkata, Mr Gadkari had declared Mrs Gandhi “a symbol of fascism” for her govornment’s decision to dismantle a massive sit-in against corruption earler this month which was organized and led by yoga teacher Baba Ramdev. Mr Gadkari had also mocked the Congress’ agenda to check corruption in the government. “Sonia Gandhi says she will fight corruption. It is like Pakistan saying they will fight terrorism. Will anyone believe this?” Mr Gadkari challenged.
