Jaitley writing hollow, wasteful blogs to regain political relevance: Congress

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Jaitley is writing "hollow and wasteful" blogs to regain political relevance, the today said, hitting back at the BJP for questioning the party's "ideology" and its Rahul Gandhi's "wisdom".

communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said Jaitley's blogs are a clear case of finding lost political relevance by "churning unadulterated lies".

He alleged that the "without a portfolio" is desperately trying to "outwit his juniors" who have surpassed ahead to "impress the Badshah by weaving blatant lies and falsehood".

Earlier, Jaitley while taking a jibe at Gandhi for "anti-tirade" questioned the president's wisdom, saying it has to be acquired through learning and cannot be inherited.

The Congress party has become "ideology-less" because its "only obsession is a person called (prime minister)", Jaitley said in a post.

Surjewala dubbed Jaitley as the "worst" in India's history who pushed a resilient Indian into an unprecedented financial gloom.

The economy under Jaitley has become the biggest NPA (non-performing asset) for the country, he said.

"Myopic memory, and weaving lies have become the characteristic style of Modi government's minister without a portfolio Jaitley.

"We understand his desperation of seeking political relevance by writing hollow rhetoric, unadulterated falsehood and plain distortion of facts through his hollow blog," the Congress said in a statement.

"Has the BJP and Shri Jailtey become agenda-less, achievement-less and argument-less?" he asked.

Instead of worrying about job creation, providing adequate MSP to farmers and national security, the is busy throwing "fitness challenges" and putting odd videos on social media, while Jaitley is busy writing some hollow blogs, he alleged.

"The Congress wants to remind the and Jaitley that they have ruined this country's economy through their Modinomics + Jaitleynomics, and this country now needs a break from them," Surjewala said.

Jaitley in his blog had earlier said, "For a of a national party (Congress) not to understand this basic procedure of functioning should be a matter of concern to the entire party as also the country."

"In dynastic parties political positions are heritable. Unfortunately wisdom is not heritable. It has to be acquired through learning," he said in a post titled "Is Congress Becoming Ideology-less? Is Anti-Modism its only ideology?".
