Mumbai | Congress leader Bhai Jagtap has slammed former Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam who had mocked Milind Deora after resignation.
The MLC accused Nirupam of “playing politics of caste and language”.
Taking to Twitter, Ashok ‘Bhai’ Jagtap tweeted in Hindi, “Some leaders claim to be Congressmen, but they play the politics of caste and language. They insult other leaders and then contest elections from their territory. But despite all this, he loses by 2.7 lakh votes. Such ‘working’ leaders need to be careful”.
कुछ नेता कांग्रेसी होने का दावा करते हैं लेकिन वे जातिवाद और भाषावाद की राजनीति करते हैं।
वे अन्य नेताओं का अपमान करते हैं और फिर उनके क्षेत्र से चुनाव भी लड़ते हैं। लेकिन इस सब के बावजूद वह 2.7 लाख वोटों से हार जाते हैं।
ऐसे ‘कर्मठ’ नेताओं से सावधान रहने की जरूरत है। https://t.co/lAWLyIr3lP

Earlier, former Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam had slammed Milind Deora and questioned him if he had resigned on the facade of “climbing the ladder” in the party.
He had said on Twitter in Hindi, “A resignation comes with a feeling of sacrifice. But here a moment later, a ‘national-level’ position is being sought. Is this a resignation or a ladder to climb up? The party should be cautious with such ‘hard-working’ people”.
Yesterday, Milind Deora who was the Mumbai Congress President had resigned from the post to participate in the party at the “national level”.
“I had accepted MRCC president-ship in the interest of uniting the party. I felt I should also resign after meeting Rahul Gandhi,” Milind Deora had said.
“I have suggested a three-member panel (to oversee the city party unit) and am being consulted by leaders to identify names” he said. Deora said he was looking forward to playing a role at the national level to help stabilise the party. “Needless to say, I will continue to guide and unite the Mumbai Congress,” he said in a statement.
Incidentally, Bhai Jagtap is also one of the front runner who will take over Milind Deora’s position.
