“See, this time it will be a test of our governance. The ruling party should be analysed on the basis of its performance in five years. If people think we have not performed well, other parties will get a chance,” Gadkari said in an interview to a TV channel.
Speaking on the caste politics and nepotism, the senior leader said, “I have never indulged into caste politics or nepotism. Sometimes, I joke with the people, what I did in five years was just a trailer. They are yet to see the full movie.”
“I think there can be a difference of ideas but there should not be differences among people and that is true for political opponents too,” Gadkari said. “We believe in samajwad, samyawad, punjiwad (socialism, equality, capitalism). People are disappointed in these three aspects… But our party is trying to ensure rasthravad (nationalism) and good governance,” the Union Minister further added.
