New Delhi, Jan 31: Jayanthi Natarajan's flabbergasting claims yesterday shook the deep roots of Indian politics as she claimed the 'hypocrisy' of the Indian National Congress.
However, at a time when the Delhi elections are just weeks ahead, many believe that Natarajan timed her revealations perfectly. While some believe that the leader is clearing grounds for an entry into the BJP, there are many who believe that there is truth in her words.
Nevertheless, she has denied all speculations regarding her meeting with the BJP President Amit Shah. "I left Congress because I felt suffocated... I couldn't take the propaganda of a malicious campaign against me," said Natarajan.
She claimed that while she followed the directives sent down from the party president and vice-president to protect the ecology, she felt betrayed when her decisions were criticized in public for her decisions to woo industrialists. And just a day before the Congress Vice President decided to do that, she was asked to resign by the Prime Minister. She also claimed that she waited for months to speak to the Gandhis , but was disappointed.
She further added,"I sought a meeting with the Congress President, to ask for party work. It is not wrong to ask the Congress president for party assignments."
