Ramesh Kumar sparks controversy

Congress MLA and former Speaker Ramesh Kumar sparked a controversy by stating at the event at Freedom Park that Congress leaders have “made enough in the name of Gandhis” and that Congress workers should be ready for sacrifices for them in return now.

“We have made enough for 3-4 generations in the name of Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. If we can’t sacrifice this much, it won’t be good,” he said.

BJP leaders came down heavily for these remarks. Minister K. Sudhakar “congratulated” the senior Congress leader for his “honesty” in accepting how “Congress looted India for 60 years” and asked Congress as to how would they now go to the people of the State with a straight face and ask votes.
