Union minister Nitin Gadkari Wednesday said while the BJP is concerned about resolving the people's woes, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi is worried about how her son and Congress president Rahul Gandhi becomes the prime minister.
"We are worried about how people should get power, farmers get right price for their produce, but Sonia ji is worried that how Rahul should become the prime minister," he said.
"In Congress, a prime minister is born to a prime minister, a chief minister to a chief minister, an MP to an MP and an MLA is born to an MLA. There is no existence of a common woker in that party," he said.
Addressing a rally in Manwar under Dhar Lok Sabha seat earlier, Gadkari said although only 30 per cent of the Ganga river has been cleaned so far, it has enabled Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to undertake Ganga Yatra.
He said with the Ganga clean up work carried out so far, the river water has become clean and its flow has improved.
"We have built a waterway. Priyanka Gandhi travelled from Allahabad to Varanasi through this waterway. But, she commented on us. I have asked her how she could have travelled, if we did not develop it (waterway)," he asked.
He said that when Indira Gandhi became the prime minister, she had promised to remove poverty and the same promise was made by Rajiv Gandhi (former PM) and the Manmohan Singh government under the leadership pf Sonia Gandhi.
In Dhar, the saffron party has fielded Chhatar Singh Darbar against Dinesh Girewal of Congress.
