The Congress Party on Tuesday took a jibe at the internal conflict within the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over party president Nitin Gadkari's future, saying the BJP has never been able to take a decision without the assent of the right-wing Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS)
Congress spokesperson Renuka Chaudhary said: "The BJP has always spoken with duel tongue, because they have duel membership. Unless RSS backs them and gives them permission, they can't say and do anything. So, they have to have clarity first that with whom they belong.
Chaudhary further said it is the BJP's internal conflict whether they will remove Gadkari as party president or not, and added that the Congress has nothing to do in the matter.
Earlier today, senior BJP leader and lawyer Ram Jethmalani openly challenged Nitin Gadkari's continuance as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president, saying top leaders within the party are of the opinion that he should resign or be removed from the post in the wake of corruption charges leveled against him
The latest development in this regard came a day after Ram Jethmalani's son and BJP's Mahesh Jethmalani resigned from the party's national executive, saying he could not continue with Gadkari at the helm on moral grounds.
