Against the backdrop of former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s controversial remarks on BJP leader Imrati Devi, BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Monday described the 73-year-old Congress leader as’ mentally impoverished ‘and claimed that his words’ poorness spoiled the political reputation of the state is. Vijayvargiya told reporters here, “Kamal Nath has a lot of wealth, crores of rupees, but he is mentally impoverished. When a person is mentally impoverished, his words become impoverished.”
Taking Kamal Nath’s controversial remarks on Imrati Devi, she said, “The manner in which Kamal Nath has shown poignancy has tarnished Madhya Pradesh’s political reputation.” Vijayvargiya claimed that the national and regional leadership of the Congress had lost the confidence of its cadres as the Congress MLAs from the state continued to join the BJP by breaking away from this party.
“Even now many people, especially young leaders, want to leave the Congress and join the BJP because they are feeling insecure in the Congress in view of their political future,” he said. Denying the allegations being leveled against the BJP by the Congress leaders for the horse-trading of MLAs, Vijayvargiya said, “They (Congress leaders) are not able to handle their MLAs themselves. In that case they should not accuse others.” “
He said, “If Congress leaders are saying that their workers are being sold, then they are insulting their workers only by saying so.” BJP General Secretary also alleged that senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is insulting the brave soldiers of India who are sacrificing their lives to protect the country’s borders by making irresponsible statements about the India-China border dispute.
