Jairam gets Cong rap for praising Kejriwal

Union minister Jairam Ramesh on Thursday found himself in another controversy with Congress ticking him off over his lavish praise for Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party.

In a terse reaction to queries on Ramesh’s views, party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said such remarks can only come from a person who is not a political worker and has got prominence in the party without undergoing the ‘rigour’, but added that he was not reffering to any particular individual.

‘It may be the opinion of some persons. They may be over enthusiastic. But if you see minutely, only those persons have illusions, who themselves were not political workers, who did not suffer that pain. They do not know what pain one undergoes in forming a political party and working a political activist,’ he said.

‘How much struggle one has to undergo before he gets an identity. Those whose identities are established all of a sudden can say anything because they have not felt that pain, not undergone that rigour,’ he told reporters here when asked about Ramesh’s remarks on AAP on Wednesday.
‘AAP is like ‘Dashavatar’. In different states it can have different avatars,’ Ramesh, who is a key Congress strategist, had said on Wednesday advising the political class ‘Don’t make fun of them. Making fun of them would be proved wrong.’
