New Delhi: Irked over maligning Baba Ramdev’s public image, BJP president Nitin Gadkari has expressed his anger for Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh who off late has called the yoga guru as ‘Dhongi’

While giving an interview to a channel, the BJP leader quite sternly answered few of the questions.

Q: Don’t you feel bad when people of civil society like Baba Ramdev and Anna Hazare take up Corruption and Black Money issues which were originally issues raised by the BJP?
Ans: I feel it is not necessary to politicize every issue. The anti corruption, the drive against black money which is led by Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev is completely a social movement and the ballot issue should be kept out of it.

Q: If you feel that this is a social development, then why don’t you join hands with the Congress to fight against it?
Ans: We cannot strike a chord with party like Congress which has become a house of cheats and corrupt people. Look at the 2G spectrum scam, Common Wealth Games scam or Aadarsh Society scam. Arun Jaitley was the first person to take up the issue in the Parliament. And also we cannot go hand in hand with a party which executes a barbaric act at the midnight by dispersing people who were holding a peace movement.

Q: But was it reasonable for your party colleague to dance while protesting in Raj Ghat after which Digvijay Singh even gave your party a tag of ‘Dancers’?
Ans: Do you find anything wrong in dancing to patriotic song like, ‘Rang de Basanti Chola.’ I really feel pity for the mentality for a party like Congress.

Q: Will Uma Bharti never extend her territory beyond Uttar Pradesh?
Ans: Uma Bharti will concentrate in UP now as the Assembly polls are not so far. But if Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister wishes for her help she would surely go to the state. Uma is a good orator and the party would sure benefit out of it. 

Q: What about the rift between Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley over the Reddy brothers?
Ans: They are very responsible politicians who discharge their duties very aptly and the rift is over.

Q: Who will be the party's prime ministerial candidate?
Ans: There are many party leaders who are capable to hold the Prime Minister’s office but Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, MM Joshi are few of the ministers who are eligible candidates for Prime Minister’s post.
