Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party MP Saroj Pandey on Monday took a jibe at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi with a card game reference by asking whether he was a ‘joker’ if his sister Priyanka Gandhi was the party’s ‘trump card’.

Ms Pandey justified her remarks by citing the statement of Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad who had termed Priyanka Gandhi’s appointment as the party’s general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh as a ‘trump card’ move.

“Congress party ke neta ne kaha, Ghulam Nabi Azad ne is baat ko kaha, ki hum trump ka ikka chalate hai... To joker se ab tak khelte the iskaa matlab tay hain,” (Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that they are now playing their trump card. So it means so far they were playing with a joker) Ms Pandey said. She was addressing the convention of state BJP in Jalna.

“If the party had earlier played its trump card, then this joker would not have wasted time so far,” she said.
