Mother elevated by the party while son is searching exit route
New Delhi: The same Congress, which has made mother Sheila Dikshit chief ministerial candidate in Uttar Pradesh Assembly election in recognition of her commendable tenure as Delhi CM, may not be having similar views about her son Sandeep Dikshit.
“Yes, the Congress leadership comprised of Vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Ajay Makan does not like me owing to my outspoken demeanour,” the two-time Congress MP from Delhi wrote on his blog.
It is most ironical that of all the leaders Shiela was given respectable face in Uttar Pradesh while her son is looking out for other alternatives other than Congress.
Sandeep, however, dismissed both Aam Aadmi Party and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the former for its persistent attacks on her mother in Delhi and the latter for lack of internal democracy. “I would like to go where my self respect remains intact,” he said.
He further said, how could the Delhi Congress accept him which never lost an opportunity to discard a leader like her mother Sheila Dikshit.
