    BJP should dump Mr.Gadkari, like a sack of hot potatoes, if it has to regain the high ground in the electoral battle.

    The BJP chief is a relative political lightweight and as long as he remains under the cloud of suspicion BJP's attack on the Vadra Gate issue will be blunted by the Congress. Or is it what the BJP leaders want at the end of the day-- you scratch my back and I will scratch your back.

    Mr.Digvijay singh, may be a spent political force in his home state but he has not lost the art of taking the psy-ops into the enemy (BJP) camp.

    WonÂ’t disclose graft proof against Vajpayee, Advani kin: Digvijaya - Indian Express

    Looks like someone in BJP desperately wants Gadkari out.

    He is getting the second term, they specially amended constitution for that.

    Besides BJP has no national leader. Definitely not the one whom RSS will approve of.

    BTW its totally absurd to say that Gadkari represents 'everything' that is wrong with BJP. Its height of overstatement.

    Firstpost is just sensational without substance.

    From the same article -

    I do not see anything wrong in the above, if anyone here sees anything out of the ordinary in the above please explain.

    1) To be a politician is it required that the person should not be earning a living, everyone is not lucky enough to have baap-dada ki jaydaad like Nehru family ? Purti group seems like a normal company to me.

    2) Will NDTV and the like grill Robert Vadra in the manner Sri Gadkari was tested by Srinivasan Jain (lovingly called `Vasu` by Congressis invited to NDTV talk shows).

    3) If state or central govt has evidence against Gadkari they should go ahead and frame charges or investigate.

    4) This is trial by media what is being mounted by NDTV/Tehelka etc.

    As for Gadkari himself he has done good work in Maharashtra as per what people from that state say. Flyovers in Mumbai in good time, Mumbai Pune expressway, trade union leader in Nagpur, etc.

    Its exactly that. Remember Kejriwal said he was called by a BJP leader and told there is an unwritten code to not attack personalities post Vadra?

    The reason why Mr.Gadkari got the second term was due to the fact that he is a political lightweight within the party and was acceptable to all the major factions.

    However the allegations on their Party President at this juncture is highly embarrassing for the BJP. In one stroke they have been unseated from the anti corruption platform they had been on since the series of G scams broke out. As the main opposition party they were expected to get the maximum mileage out of the scams, but now they have to play second fiddle to the IAC.

    That was Mr.Gadkari who is alleged to have said this to Ms.Anjali Damania.

    The country needs this spring cleaning, as the politicians have made it into a very lucrative career.

    If you look at the list of assets of even the most honest politician, you will find that their assets have grown by muti-fold, which for an ordinary person will never be possible.

    Gadkari may or may not be guilty, but the speed at which some of the pro-BJP voices are turning against Gadkari suggests that there is a larger game being played, after all its not like BJP is all squeaky clean without Gadkari.

    Don't get me wrong but Kejariwal has made a mistake by opposing Gadkari with his lame arguments. What Gadkari is doing is totally fair and legit.All businessman does that and opposing the turn overs makes me feel what would Kejariwal says about other progressive companies not having political connections. And now media especially paid whores are ripping off Kejariwal and keeping alive only Gadkari's issue.Vadra is totally side lined. This will help congress.

    I think congress did raised kin of Vajpayee issue. What Digvijay Singh said is all BS.

    Anyway, I will love it if congress bring those cases up again. Let it be in front of people.

    Congress should and must go for it, openly.

    First of all do they have enough balls now, for that.....?

    I doubt it.

Well, I'm telling you, a lot of people don't know anything about scams. Last year in KBC when anna was at peak, 1 candidate didn't know about Anna when question asked about him. Indians are ignorant and short minded,sufferring from Ghajini disease. One chap here in other thread was/is praising Gandhi family even after knowing everything.I totally lost hope from this country.

    Well, our media is as corrupt and greedy for money as the babus and netas, what to say and the majority of people are illiterate and poor and kept that way for 60+ years of independence.

    Which is why Congress Party, Lallu Party, Mulayam Pary, Sharad Pawar mafia and other crooks and criminals will keep getting elected. If anyone questions Congress-mafia, media is ready to grill the opposition rather than the criminals. During CWG initially instead of going after Kalmadi and co, NDTV was raising issue of a businessman who was a friend of a BJP guy.

    So intead of pursuing Vadra and Congress Party, media will hound BJP leaders and ask BJP to introspect. Why is that after ruling India for major part of the time since 1947, Congress is never held responsible for the fact that people are still illiterate, poor and hungry and 60% defecate in the open. Nways we get what we vote for - examples being WB that voted the communists for 34 years in a row, UP that votes either SP or BSP and Maharashtra that votes Congress-NCP.
