Sunil Jakhar, the former state president of Punjab Congress and one of the good book of Congress, not only surprised everyone by resigning suddenly but also made all kinds of allegations against the Congress. Jakhar says that the leaders of Punjab started doing that work in Punjab which was not being done even in the era of terrorism. He says that I had done the work of putting antimony in the eyes of Congress, but leaders like Ambika Soni and Harish Chaudhary gave a message to the high command that I am tearing my eyes. He says that if Congress really wants to do doodh ka doodh and pani ka pani, then it should also decide in Rajasthan whether Sachin Pilot was wrong by protesting or Ashok Gehlot sitting on the post of Chief Minister. He says that a lot of politics has happened now. Now he will sit quietly. On the question of joining another party, he said to distance himself from politics for the time being. Sunil Jakhar said many such things during a conversation with Ashish Tiwari of Amar Ujala.com. Here are excerpts from the conversation.
answer: (laughs) I am a small Congress worker. One who runs from the heart instead of the mind. How can I surprise the party?
answer: What was it that the high command did not know. Is madam ignorant about the politics of Punjab? But his eyes and ears were two such leaders of Punjab, who were not only provoking him but were also preparing the ground to clean up the Congress.
answer: Ambika Soni and Harish Chaudhary. It was these two leaders who told the madam and the high command that Sunil Jakhar was doing an eye-popping job in Punjab. Whereas the reality is that I was doing the work of putting antimony in the eyes of the Congress. Tell me… Ambika Soni tried to divide Punjab in the politics of Hindu and Sikh. Hey…when even the roaring guns could not divide Punjab into Hindus and Sikhs in the era of terrorism, did these leaders go to divide Punjab?
answer: The party should tell me which post I was in which I was removed. As for answering the question, why should I reply in the explanation sent after the allegations of such champ and sycophantic leaders. The party high command knows everything.
answer: Now it is better if you do not answer all these questions from me. I just want to say one thing that there is nothing that the party does not know.
answer: Anything can be done for formality. In Udaipur’s contemplation camp, you are sitting and discussing the war between Russia and Ukraine. This is not going to benefit the party. It is better that you make plans to strengthen the workers in the party. Make plans on how to get rid of smugglers and sycophants. Only then will the contemplation camps be successful.
answer: Answer: Talking about the Chintan Shivir in Udaipur, I think there can be no better platform for Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot than this. There was fierce protest in Rajasthan too. Sachin Pilot did it. Ashok Gehlot should ask the Congress high command from the full stage that if Sachin Pilot, who protested, was wrong, then he should be expelled from the party. And if it was not so, then Ashok Gehlot himself should resign from the post of Chief Minister. This is where you see the difference, how the high command differs in Punjab and Rajasthan.
answer: No one has contacted me and I have not contacted anyone. Now I will sit quietly at home.
answer: If you leave the party, all these things have become old for me. Neither I have spoken to any leader nor any leader has spoken to me. Now all the chapters are closed.
