Congress MP Manish Tewari said it’s strange that people who do not have the capacity to even fight a ward election want to talk about winning an election.
Laughable when ‘chaprasis’ give ‘gyan’ about Congress: Manish Tewari
Congress MP Manish Tewari on Saturday said he doesn’t want to comment on the merits of the 5-page letter of Ghulam Nabi Azad in which he heaped criticisms on Rahul Gandhi but it is ‘laughable’ when ‘people who till yesterday were chaprasis of Congress leaders give gyan’. “It’s laughable – for the lack of a better word,” Manish Tewari said. “We are in a serious situation. We have been in a serious situation. What happened is regrettable, unfortunate and, in my estimation, avoidable,” the Congress MP said.
“I don’t want to go into the merits of Mr Azad’s letter. He will be in the best position to explain why or what the context of the letter is. The letter speaks for itself. But suffice to say that at times it is strange if not quixotic that people who do not have the capacity to even fight a ward election want to talk of winning an election,” Manish Tewari said.
Talking about G-23 of which Manish Tewari has been a part, the Punjab MP said 23 leaders of the party wrote to Sonia Gandhi two years ago that the party’s situation is worrying and should be taken seriously. “Congress lost all Assembly polls after that letter. If Congress and India thought alike, it seems either of them has started thinking differently,” Manish Tewari said.
“A crack seems to have appeared in coordination between India and Congress that existed since 1885. A self-introspection was needed. Had the consensus of the meeting that was held at Sonia Gandhi’s residence on December 20, 2020 been executed, this situation would not have arrived,” Manish Tewari said to ANI.
