Congress leader and Delhi’s Former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in a recent interview to ToI said that despite stepping down from the position of CM candidate, she has not stopped campaigning for the Congress in UP.
Further, she insists that she has not retired from politics and is still very much active and doing whatever the party is asking her to do.
She clarified that during the Kanpur and Banaras campaigning she had fallen ill and thus could not go at that time, but would soon be heading out to Banaras.
With regards to Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Indian National Congress’s current condition across India, Dikshit said that there is a generational change that is happening and in the political field, Rahul is still not mature.
“We are going through change. It is both a generational change and a change in politics from what it was till a few years back. The political language has changed quite a lot. For instance, you would not expect the PM to say what he said about former PM…Congress is adjusting itself. And please remember Rahul is still not mature, his age does not allow him to be mature. He is what… in his forties. Please give him time.”
Though she quickly added that Rahul is the only man who has spoken about farmers and always speaks his mind.
“Congress believes in development of the weak and marginalised. Rahul is the only one who has spoken about farmers. I think he has come a long way. He is not yet prime minister because that opportunity will come later… and he is one person who is known to speak his mind.”
Soon after Dikshit’s statement, Rahul was once again trolled on Twitter with many asking, how, anyone who is in his 40’s still not mature.
