BJP has a hidden agenda to polarise India: Sachin Pilot
Interview with Minister of Corporate Affairs
Business Standard | Mumbai:: Minister of Corporate Affairs Sachin Pilot downplayed Narendra Modi’s elevation to the post of prime ministerial candidate by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and raised serious doubts over Modi’s ability to give broad-based leadership, when he cannot get unanimous support within the party. In an interview with Sanjay Jog & Abhijit Lele, he said the Congress would reach out to voters with a positive and not divisive agenda and expressed confidence that United Progressive Alliance (UPA) III would be a reality. Edited excerpts:
The BJP has finally anointed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate. How does it pose a challenge to the Congress party?
It would not have any effect on the Congress-led UPA. The entire process (of Modi’s coronation) has shown deep divisions within the BJP. The party simply dumped veteran leader L K Advani who was instrumental in its formation and leading it effectively over the years.
Does it pose a challenge to Rahul Gandhi, who is being seen as Congress nominee for the PM’s post?
