BJP fears Gandhi-Nehru family most, very scared of Rahul too: Chhattisgarh CM

By Trideep Lahkar

Guwahati, Feb 28 (PTI) The BJP “fears” the Gandhi-
Nehru family the most in Indian politics, feels Chhattisgarh
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, who also insisted that Congress
leader Rahul Gandhi is the “only choice” for the party”s
national president post.

Baghel said the saffron party is also very scared of
Gandhi as he constantly raises pertinent issues affecting the
people.

“If BJP fears someone or something the most, it is the
Gandhi-Nehru family. When Indira Gandhi came to power, then
the same Jan Sangh people used to call her ”gungi gudiya”
(dumb doll). They made fun of her using that phrase.

“But, Indira Gandhi proved that she was an iron lady
through her work. When she got a chance, she divided Pakistan
and created Bangladesh. The world has not seen anything like
what she did,” Baghel told PTI in an interview.

The Chhattisgarh CM, a close confidante of Rahul
Gandhi, said the Lok Sabha MP is the only pan-India leader
fighting against the BJP and RSS across the country.

“Why is the BJP so scared of Rahul Gandhi? He is just
an MP. Because, Rahul is down to earth. He listens to the
voice of common people and raises their issues,” Baghel said.

Gandhi speaks about every segment – youths, the
unemployed, women, farmers, adivasis and scheduled tribes – he
added.

“That is why BJP is scared of him… becasue he speaks
the truth. Rahul lives in the heart of people and that pinches
BJP”s heart,” Baghel said.

Baghel said Rahul Gandhi is the only choice for
Congress national president, the election for which will take
place by June after the completion of assembly polls in five
states.

Asked about the reason behind such confidence in the
Congress leader despite a dismal performance by the party in
the 2019 Lok Sabha polls under his leadership, the CM said,
“That is why he resigned. He had the moral courage to accept
that.”

The 2019 defeat was the worst for the Congress along
with that of 2014, but nobody raised a finger at leadership,
he said.

“Rahul Gandhi worked hard throughout the country. BJP
got votes on emotional ground due to the Balakot surgical
strike. But, the issues raised by him are still valid… He is
the only leader at the national level,” Baghel said.

Talking more about the 2019 general elections, the
Chhattisgarh chief minister said BJP leaders were leaving the
party before the Pulwama incident took place.

“They did not seek votes for demonetisation or GST.
Instead, they asked for votes underscoring the valour of our
army after the surgical strike.

“And, they have still not been able to tell how 300 kg
of RDX reached the place that killed our 40 jawans. There is
no investigation into that. It is a big question,” Baghel
said.

On whether Priyanka Gandhi will be given more
responsibility at the national level in days to come, he said
it will be decided by the party high command, but all will
“welcome that”. PTI TR
