Mumbai: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar on Saturday said that the Congress is on the way to fulfil the dream of late Mahatma Gandhi, who had recommended to dissolve the Congress party. He further said that the BJP has been taking Vibhishana of Lanka (leaders of the Congress) into the party.

“Since Ramayana depicted that the Vibhishana should be taken towards the truth, the good leaders have been taken into the party. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had given a list of leaders who should not be taken into the party. Excluding those on the Thackeray’s list, all the leaders would be taken into the party,” Mr Mungantiwar added.   

 

When asked about the state congress’s releasing a booklet containing 100 Mistakes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party, Mr Mungantiwar termed him as the BJP’s ‘shishupal’ (mythological character in Mahabharata). He added that the party has been playing the same cassette since 1952 as it had been stuck.

He said that the Congress has touched in low by terming PM Modi, as ‘maut ka saudagar’, ‘khoon ka dalal’ and a person belonging to a ‘neech jaati’ (low caste).
