Gadkari wants to drag the CVC fiasco further

Nitin Gadkari
New Delhi, Mar 10: Whoever said that politics is a matter of individual choices and anguishes cannot be more right anywhere than in the current scenario in India. With tensions between India's two major political parties- the Congress and BJP easing out in the light of the Prime Minister's admission of mistake in the appointment of CVC, there now seems to be another round of conflict waiting as the BJP chief Nitin Gadkari has said that the matter has not ended there.

Nitin Gadkari, the BJP president on Mar 9 stated that the party would take the appointment of the CVC to people and not just end it with the PM's apology. This is in stark contrast to senior party leader Sushma Swaraj's view who it appeared was satisfied with the PM's error admission and didn't seem insistent upon dragging the matter further.

At a press conference on Mar 9, Gadkari said, "The CVC matter has not ended for BJP. The Prime Minister's reply has not satisfied us. Our nation-wide programme against corruption will also present the role of the Prime Minister and we will take this issue to the people."

When queried about the contradiction of his statement with senior party leaders, he said, "I am speaking as the party president. There is no contradiction between the statement of (Arun) Jaitley and Sushma (Swaraj). As far as the party line is concerned, I am very clear."

The approach of Arun Jaitley and now Nitin Gadkari on the appointment of P J Thomas as CVC is now being seen as a clear cut difference between that of Sushma Swaraj, one of the BJP's senior most leader and the leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha.
