Nagpur MP and Union Road and Transport Minister has made a confession that is rattling waves through the Modi government and party leadership, also giving the opposition and the Congress fresh round of bullets to fire.

Congress on its Twitter account posted a video of Gadkari, who was part of an interview with a Marathi television channel, saying that the statement proves the fact that BJP government was “built on jumlas and fake promises”. Actor Nana Patekar, who is in the middle of the #MeToo storm was also on the show.

In the video, Gadkari is also seen saying that the BJP had never estimated to come to power in 2014.

Gadkari says, “We were very confident that we can never come to power. So our people suggested us to make tall promises. If we don’t come to the power, we won’t be responsible anyways. Now people remind us of our promises…we just laugh and move on.”

He went on to suggest that the BJP needs to be more open and transparent to the public.


“Good to see Union Minister Nitin Gadkari concurring with our view that the Modi government was built on jumlas and fake promises,” read the Congress tweet, who did not fail to make the most of the candid confession made by Gadkari.

Rahul Gandhi too, put up the video to roast the BJP. He wrote, “You are right (Gadkari). Even the people think that the BJP used their dreams and faith for the party’s gain to come to power.”

Gadkari had made similar statements back in August, where he said that reservation did not guarantee employment there were no jobs in the country. He was citing the Maratha quota agitation. The statement put the government in a fix.

He said, “Let us assume that reservation is given. But there are no jobs. Because in banks, the jobs have shrunk because of IT. The government recruitment is frozen. Where are the jobs?”
