New Delhi, ANI In the presence of union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Congress leader, and spokesman Tom Vadakkan has joined the Bharatiya Janata Party. In the wake of the Lok Sabha election 2019, it is being described as a major setback for the Congress. Tom Vadkkan is said to be very close to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi. In such a situation, if the BJP has broken into Sonia Gandhi’s house, then it will not be wrong. It is being told that some other Congress leaders can also go hand in hand. Tom Vadakkan has been the assistant of the former prime minister and late Congress leader Rajiv Gandhi.
Why did the legendary leader like Tom Vadakan finally decided to leave the Congress party? “When Pakistani terrorists attacked our country, then the Congress party behaved like that, I did not like it at all,” said Vadakkane. Then the Congress statement made me very unhappy. If a political party gives a statement against the country during the terrorist attack, then I had no choice except leaving the party. ‘ He said that I spent many years of my politics in Congress, but there is the dominance of dynasty politics.
Let us know that Vadakkanhas been a big Congress leader in Kerala and comes from the Roman Catholic community. He said that it was wrong to ask the Congress if it was an Air Strike by the IAF in Balakot, Pakistan. This has hurt the feelings of the country.
Vedakkan, who has held many senior positions in the Congress, has
been the national spokesman of the Congress, Tom Vadkkan. Apart from this, the office bearers of the All India Congress Committee, head of AICC Grievance Redressal Committee and the Appellate Members of the Film Certification Tribunal have also been there. He has a good hold in Kerala. In such a way, joining BJP in Vadakkan can lead to a big loss to the Congress. Here, these steps will be helpful in strengthening the foot for the BJP in the South.
