Union Minister Nitin Gadkari often targets someone or the other with his cheeky remarks. This style of Gadkari was once again seen on Saturday. During an event in Maharashtra, he narrated his experiences of Delhi in such a way that the people present there laughed. However, speculation continued about who Gadkari targeted with his words. Gadkari said his experience has been that people whom he considered ‘big’, on closer inspection, turned out to be ‘very small’. Gadkari did not stop here, he further said that he found Maharashtra better than Delhi.
Delhi water is not good
The senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader referred to a conversation he had with a friend at an event here. Gadkari said that he lived in Delhi when he was elected president of his party. He smiled and said in a sarcastic tone that Delhi’s water is not good. He further said that Maharashtra is very good. Mumbai is very nice. The audience burst into laughter at his words. Gadkari was the President of the Bharatiya Janata Party from 2009 to 2013.
Told a friend
Gadkari was earlier a minister in the Shiv Sena-BJP government in Maharashtra from 1995 to 1999. He has been a senior minister in the Narendra Modi government since 2014. The BJP leader said that I also told him (my friend) that people whom I considered strong, when I got close to them, I realized that they were not as strong as I thought. They were small. And those whom I thought were small… When I got closer to them, I found that they were strong. This has been my life experience.
