New Delhi: Congress on Friday hit out at BJP
chief Nitin Gadkari for his remarks against party president
Sonia Gandhi over price rise and said he does not have the
stature to make such a statement.
"Nitin Gadkari is a respected person and also the
President of the BJP. But we do not think that he has the
political stature that we reply to him from this podium,"
party spokesman Manish Tewari said at the AICC briefing.
Gadkari had said he wondered why Sonia Gandhi and Rahul
Gandhi were silent on the issue of inflation... "They make
observations on various issues. But I do not understand why
they are silent on price rise," he had said.

Asked about the opposition sponsored Bharat bandh on
July 5, Tewari said the NDA and the Left are misleading the
people.

He said the BJP dismantled the Administered Price
Mechanism for petroleum products and they take have one stance
when in power and another when in the opposition.
