New Delhi: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Tariq Anwar on Monday described senior Congress Party leader A.R. Antulay’s not-so-veiled negative remarks against his party’s top leadership as an advisory.
“He is a senior and a seasoned Congressman. If he has given such an advice, then, it should be viewed it in that way. If he has to say something, then, he should write a letter to the Congress president or meet her and tell her what needs to be done in this situation,” Anwar said.
“It is true that he played an important role when the Congress was in the opposition in 1977, and the party is once again going through the same situation. The Congress Party can take the help of his experience, although it is an internal matter of the Congress,” he added.
Antulay, a former Maharashtra chief minister, has squarely blamed the Congress high command for the rout in the Lok Sabha elections, and lamented the fact that the Congress has come to such a pass, that it cannot even muster the required seats to secure the post of Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha.
