New Delhi, Oct 11, 2018 : The BJP had made several false promises to get elected in the 2014 elections and now in power, does not plan to make good on those promises, Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said, while speaking as a guest alongside Bollywood actor Nana Patekar in a reality show, as to reports by The Quint.
Gadkari made his statement in an episode of a Marathi reality show ‘Assal Pavhane, Irsal Namune’ that was aired on Colours in two parts on 4 and 5 October.
“We didn’t expect to come to power. So we were advised to make tall promises...Now that we are in power, people remind us of the promises we made. But nowadays, we just laugh and move on.”
The first part of the episode, titled “When politics meets cinema”, was aired on 4 October, the second part, “Comic banter between Nana and Nitin”, was available to viewers on 5 October.
Gadkari’s statement was also shared by the Congress on Twitter, with the message that the Union minister had just proved that the Modi government “was built on jumlas and fake promises”.
