Bhopal: BJP President Nitin Gadkari said on Thursday that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi did not have the charisma to appeal to people from all sections of the society.
"I do not subscribe to the view that Rahul has a charisma which appeals to all kinds of people in the society," the BJP president told a press conference at the party's Madhya Pradesh office.
"If only Rahul had some charisma, the Congress would not have lost assembly elections in those states where he had campaigned extensively," he said.Gadkari said though he had also toured 24 states all over the country and spent 48 days there, he had not received any media coverage.
The BJP president said he was not worried with the fact that Congress was projecting Rahul Gandhi as the future Prime Minister of the country."It is the internal matter of the Congress to decide whom it wants to project as the Prime Minister," he said.
Gadkari said he had risen from an ordinary party worker to be the BJP President and added that such a thing was not possible in the Congress."In the Congress, only someone from the Nehru-Gandhi family can aspire to be the party president," he said.PTI
