    Gaddar, along with his wife, Vimala and son Surya Kiran had met with Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on Friday at the invitation of AICC secretary and former MP, Madhu Yashki Goud. Gaddar was asked to join the party, but he refused. He said that he would not join any political party, but would act as a bridge between the secular and political parties.

    In a media briefing he said that he met with Rahul Gandhi in connection with the Protect the Constitution movement. He further accused KCR of not fulfilling a single promise he had made back in 2014. He had assured the people of one job per family, making a Dalit the Chief Minister and also distributing land to Dalits.
