Cong MP comes down hard on Gandhis

Dewas MP Sajjan Singh Verma is an exceptional Congressman for whom the buck stops nowhere.

On Saturday he told party workers he needed to say some “ant-shantt” (rebuke in not so polite language) to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi to persuade them to put the region on the railways map.

“Gala galaa akhiri mein dabayega (we will get hold of their neck),” he added.

Verma said, “Then only will they (the Gandhis) open their eyes and ears.”

When some suggested starting an agitation, he said, “Nothing will come out of agitation. Akhabarbazi karvate raho (keep raising the matter in newspapers).”

When contacted, Verma first denied having said anything but later justified it on the grounds that his utterances were common language in the area.

He said he just wanted his constituency to develop and his statement had no other import.
