Gadkari to IT officials: Remember, Congress on its way out

Jan 24 2013, 5:21am CST | by

Nagpur, Jan 24 (IANS) Income tax officials should not forget that the Congress was on its way out, former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari said Thursday as he arrived home to a massive welcome.

Nagpur, Jan 24 — Income tax officials should not forget that the Congress was on its way out, former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari said Thursday as he arrived home to a massive welcome.

"The income tax department hatched a conspiracy on the direction of the Congress government. I have also got the names of the officials from some others who are sympathetic to me and our party. They (IT officials) should remember the Congress's boat is sinking, and when they go and our government comes, no Chidambaram or Sonia Gandhi will be there to save them," Gadkari said in a thinly veiled threat.

"Before the income tax department, it was the Central Bureau of Investigation that used to dance to the Congress's tunes. Now income tax officials in Delhi and Nagpur are conspiring against me," he added.

Referring to Congress president Sonia Gandhi without naming her, Gadkari said that there was only one ruler in the Congress while others were merely servants.

He also attacked the media, saying the press had no right to disturb the life of "honest" politicians.

"Will also tell media, there is democracy and if we make some mistakes run Breaking News all day. But the constitution does not give you the right to disturb the life of honest party workers and leaders," he said.

Gadkari arrived in his home town of Nagpur Thursday to a massive welcome, after narrowly missing a second term as party president after Tuesday's Income Tax 'surveys' of around nine locations connected to alleged financial wrongdoing by a company linked to him.

He said the Congress and the income tax department were trying to tarnish his image by highlighting issues to which he was not connected. He said he would continue fighting till he came out clean.

He stepped down Tuesday night to make way for Rajnath Singh as the BJP president.

By Mohit Hajarnis:When looking at India from the outside, it seems like a natural growth story: a potential market of 1.2 billion people, a growing middle class, and cheaper labor costs than China. However, India's GDP growth has shrunk to 5.0% in 2013 from 6.2% in 2012 and 9.3% in 2011. The slowing growth is reflective of the cumbersome regulatory environment that India has created: the country has earned the infamous moniker o ...
