Jairam Ramesh pokes Azad: Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh took an ambiguous throw at former party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday and accused him of initiating fake news while sitting in "Modi Sarkar-sanctioned bungalows with huge lawns" in Delhi.
With reference to a video that shows Congress workers holding a public meeting in Jammu and Kashmir's Bhalessa, which Azad is a native of, Ramesh said, "This is ground reality, not reality manufactured by people sitting in New Delhi in Modi Sarkar sanctioned bungalows with huge lawns and planting fake news."
The video on Twitter was shared by Jammu and Kashmir Congress shared and captioned: "Congress workers of all blocks of Sub Division Bhalessa assembled at Congress office Gandoh to hold monthly meeting which is being conducted 1st day of every month for last more than 50 years. Bhalessa is the home village of Ghulam Nabi Azad."
Ghulam Nabi Azad has criticized the Congress party leadership, including Jairam Ramesh after he announced his resignation from the Congress in a five-page stinging letter to Sonia Gandhi last week. He particularly targeted Rahul Gandhi, alleging that he is not appropriate for politics, and neither does he have the aptitude or interest in politics.
