Leaders who fail to fulfill promises get thrashed by public: Nitin Gadkari

"Nitin Gadkari's comments are now being twisted and political benefit being taken out of it. He was hinting towards Congress that only gave slogans of 'Garibi Hatao' but didn't do anything for poverty alleviation and towards Rahul Gandhi who makes empty promises," Rao said.

Rao said Gadkari was hinting at the Congress that only gave slogans of 'Garibi Hatao' but didn't do anything for poverty alleviation, and at Rahul Gandhi, who Rao said makes empty promises.

On Sunday, Nitin Gadkari said politicians who sell dreams to people and don't fulfill are "beaten up" by the public.

Addressing an event in Mumbai, Union transport minister in Modi government said: "People like (political) leaders who show them big dreams. But if these dreams are not realised, then they beat them up (politically) as well. Therefore, one should only commit what they can fulfill."

"I am not among those who show people big dreams, I do what I talk about," he said.

The BJP's rebuttal comes after a series of cryptic comments by Gadkari were seen to carry hidden messages for his party's leadership, mainly PM Modi.
