Manish Tiwari said that it is "laughable" when "those who were "chaprasis" of Congress leaders until yesterday" provide "gyan."
New Delhi: A day after the senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad quit the party, Manish Tewari, a Congress MP stated he did not wish to comment on the merits of Ghulam Nabi Azad’s five-page letter, in which he criticised Rahul Gandhi, On the other hand, Tewari claimed that it is “laughable” when “those who were “chaprasis” of Congress leaders until yesterday” provide “gyan.”
Tewari stated, we were in a serious situation. It was disappointing, unfortunate, and, in my opinion, avoidable.
Two years ago, 23 of us wrote to Sonia Gandhi to express our concern about the party’s state of affairs and request that she take them seriously. After that letter, Congress lost all the Assembly polls. If Congress and India had similar thinking, it seems either of them would have started thinking differently, “Congress MP Manish Tewari said.”
The MP from Punjab’s Anandpur Sahib, in a reference to a meeting with the Congress high command two years ago, said, “A crack seems to have formed in the coordination between India and Congress that existed since 1885. Self-introspection is needed. It is essential to reflect on oneself. I feel that these circumstances wouldn’t have arisen if the decision that was reached at the meeting held at Sonia Gandhi’s residence on December 20, 2020.
Tewari further said that he has been a Congressman for 42 years and does not need a “certificate”.
“We do not need any certificates from anyone. I have been supporting this party for 42 years. We are members of the Congress, not tenants of this institution [Congress].
“Now, if you try to push us out, that is another matter,” he said.
