Mumbai: Like many in the Congress Party and rest of the opposition, Sam Pitroda, who is Indian Congress overseas’ chairman, appreciated the views expressed by former Deputy Prime Minister of India, LK Advani. Speaking at a programme of All India Professionals Congress, Pitroda said, “I have meet LK Advani several times in the past. He is a fine person. I appreciate his comments which were timely and important.”
He added Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all about self promotion. He praised Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) veteran for advising people to put the nation first, then party and finally yourself. He also recalled the cordial relationship leader like Atal Vajpayee shared with opposition. Calling opposition anti-national, Pitroda feels is concerning.
Other than Advani’s blog, he touched upon other issues too like the EVM tampering too. Pitroda, former advisor and close aid of Rajiv Gandhi, said, “I know something is wrong but I don’t know what it is.” He stressed that he has been utilising his technological knowledge to understand how EVMs are tampered.
But I know there is something wrong there.” Adding to this, Pitroda said any party that claims it will win for next 50 years then you know something is wrong somewhere. He further added that there is no other party that can create jobs like Congress can.
