Before being rewarded, Varun Gandhi will have to prove his calibre
Kolkata: Prove your mettle and get rewarded accordingly, is the only mantra in Bharatiya Janata Party to move up the ladder. And this hold true for Varun Gandhi too, who was a general secretary when Rajnath Singh was at the helm but could not find a place in the new set-up Amit Shah.
When asked for his view on Varun Gandhi’s exclusion from the new team of office-bearers announced on Saturday, party secretary Siddharth Nath Singh said that the party will surely look into his calibre and position him accordingly.
“There are many opportunities in the party, in the government and I am sure the party will look into his calibre and adjust him accordingly,” Singh told mediapersons.
When asked at to why there was no representation from West Bengal in Shah’s newly-constituted team, Singh said “let me put it this way, you must have seen Narendra Modi by now, he doesn’t want representation of states to be the hallmark. He believes in India as one. He looks at India as 125 crore”.
“This is a problem in political thinking, that someone has to come from Bengal, some from UP. Modi ji looks at India as one. The best talent which is in Bengal should be retained here to fight Mamata Banerjee. If I take the leadership away, then who will fight her here?” Singh countered.
