Union minister of state for Commerce and Industry, Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday said that country needs true social workers than politicians for its development.
Scindia was in Amravati to address a rally organised by Congress candidate Raosaheb Shekhawat, son of President Pratibha Patil, contesting from Amravati for October 13 Maharashtra Assembly polls.
"Today, our country needs a true social worker and not a politician. True social workers are those who obey the orders of the party," he said, adding that Raosaheb was a true social worker.
Scindia, an MP from Guna, also appealed to join Congress ideology for the development of the country.
"I am starting my election campaign in Maharashtra from the constituency of Raosaheb Shekhawat, who was closely associated with my father, late Madhavrao Scindia," he said.
Criticising BJP, Scindia said that BJP tried to change the definition of politics and introduced the caste based politics.
NDA government used to give only Rs 63,000 crore to the state for development, which Congress led UPA government took to Rs 1,83,000 crore, he said.
