People see Indira Gandhi in Priyanka, Siddaramaiah joined Congress to Finish it – Poojary
Mangaluru: “Priyanka Gandhi being appointed as the General Secretary of All India Congress Committee is a good development for the Congress Party and the Congress party has gained more strength with her appointment. PM Modi has lost his sleep after the appointment of Priyanka as General Secretary. People see Indira Gandhi in Priyanka Gandhi”, said the former minister Janardhan Poojary in a press meet held at the Temple premises here on January 24.
Addressing the media persons Poojary said, “In the coming days Priyanka will strengthen the party. Women power is great and in every family, Women power is growing in our country. AICC President Rahul Gandhi announced Priyanka as the General Secretary and in the coming days, the entire country will need her. The Congress party will give the complete power to Priyanka Gandhi”.
When asked whether Rahul doesn’t have the power to lead the country, Poojary said, “Rahul Gandhi is the president of AICC and he himself announced Priyanka as the General Secretary. After the announcement, Modi has become restless. Modi is not afraid of anyone but he cannot tolerate Priyanka being in active politics. Because the Nehru family has contributed a lot to the country. People are very happy that Priyanka has stepped into active politics. We cannot create another Nehru, but we have to remember their sacrifices for the country.”
When asked will Priyanka be the Prime Minister, Poojary said, “Are there any restrictions for Priyanka be the PM?”
When asked about National politics where the leaders are in good terms but in the State politics, leaders are fighting for power is this not a resort politics? Poojary said, “Politics has become dirty, politicians are greedy for power, they think that they are great and as a result, they fight on the streets.”
When asked whether Poojary will contest in the Loksabha elections, Poojary said, “If I get the ticket I will surely contest”. When questioned about Ivan contesting the elections, Poojary said, “Ivan wants everything in the world. I will go to Delhi and meet the leaders. Everyone knows that Ivan will not get the ticket for the Lok Sabha elections”.
When asked about Siddaramaiah who successfully dealt with operation Kamala, Poojary said, “Siddaramaiah joined Congress to finish the party. It is only because of Kumaraswamy the government is firm. Under the leadership of Kumaraswamy, the government will complete its tenure. Ramanath Rai made a mistake saying “Mulsim votes are enough for me”, which led to his defeat in the last elections.”
