Former law minister HR Bhardwaj said president Rahul Gandhi has to learn a lot and will become a leader only when the people accept him. “Whatever he does in the name of religion, is always wrong …. Congress fails because it indulges in the politics of religion. Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and even I was here. But we never did politics in the name of religion …”, said HR Bhardwaj.
This is not the first time Bhardwaj has been critical of his party and Gandhi. “Rahul is a young man. He has to lead the young people. But he is not in touch with the senior people, he doesn’t show any inclination. So he is also out of touch,” said HR Bhardwaj. He has also criticised other senior leaders of the Congress party, including former Union minister P Chidambaram, in the past.
