"As per psychology, if we can compare the IQ level of Swami Vivekananda and that of Dawood Ibrahim, then it could have been almost the same. But Vivekananda used it in nation-building, brotherhood and spiritualism while Dawood used that in excelling in crime world," he added.
The BJP president said this while making his point that discrimination between men and women on the basis of caste, religion, language and gender is unfair and people should be judged only on the basis of their qualities. Quoting Vivekananda, he said the 21st century belongs to knowledge and considering that India has a bright future. Gadkari also said politics is a domain full of individuals who are not satisfied with what they have achieved.
