the days of 90 per cent-plus personal income tax rates wouldn’t have generated the kind evasion they did. download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Mumbai | Published: December 11, But I was clear that they will get caught sooner or later and it’s not worth it. The middle-order batsman has seven days to file a reply. is he a youth? but they (AAP and BJP) didn’t think..where will they get the 50 percent of the price from We have been hearing about the impending reshuffle in the Congress How do you see it playing out There has to be a reshuffle it’s not as if people have become redundant but they can be utilized elsewhere and a little change is always good I sincerely believe the Congress president wants to bring about changes but I cannot either predict or envisage the time It’s more of newspapers and media and their assumption she hasn’t said anything yet There is a feeling amongst the party cadre that they are confused about the direction from their leadership The followers are ready but the leader is not ready yet We had the biggest setback in any election so far this time Please remember that and you can’t just wish it away Now we will take the steps after we have the full picture in front of us from Kashmir to Kanyakumari so it will take a little time There are discussions going within the party and I’m one of those who believe that this country needs the Congress ideology BJP has proved that it’s not an all inclusive ideology you had RSS speaking on Doordarshan and that never happened before I’m not talking of any individuals but the direction that you’re taking I also feel that we should wait for a few more months let them complete a year and then we will get to know I don’t say that we will win everywhere but we have to gear up and we are doing that I think we owe it to the party its glorious history and we owe it to the country to have a good opposition and we have done a good job in Parliament so far What about you are you deliberately trying to keep yourself sidelined within the party I won’t use the word deliberate but I think it’s the wise thing to do I have been chief minister for 15 years and a Governor for six months (laughs) and I don’t want to get into personalized active politics I’m not hankering after a position or place in the party but I’m concerned about the Congress and will do whatever work I can do for the party as a Congressmen We are already working towards reviving the ideology of the party I ask you a question BJP has leaders like Shyama Prasad Mookerjee and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya but they don’t seem to talk about them They’re banking on a generation that may not be able to distinguish between Mahatma Gandhi Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel so what is it It will come out one day then people will realize You are trying to snatch other people’s leaders You also told the high command that you don’t want any position in the committees formed for Delhi elections Where do you see yourself six months down the line I see myself at B-2 Nizamuddin East (big smile) But Congress Party needs senior leaders like you I don’t want to get into electoral politics My experience last time was not a happy one and maybe I think I have done enough but am always there for service I’m collecting information about what to do with e rickshaws We must bring it out in our manifesto (Delhi) I’ve collected some information on them from West Bengal and they cannot be allowed to go on just like this there are over a lakh of them on the roads in Delhi How do we deal with the traffic the current problem that Delhi is facing Do we divide roads for cyclists we have 8 lanes on both sides of the road and yet there are traffic jams So these are issues that we need to address What are the issues that you think will bring about the revival of the Congress It’s not a difficult job because we have had 10 years of work in Centre and 15 years in Delhi and they are just rephrasing what UPA has done At the moment people have brought about the change so they will stick with their decision for some time they can’t say they took a wrong decision so soon I keep meeting housewives and they say that every time prices go up and no one says anything about it There is a general feeling amongst the people that media is being controlled Whether that feeling is there amongst the media or not I don’t know but it’s generally coming from the people The whole world is lucky that crude oil prices have come down but have they reached my price of potatoes It probably may have reached the wholesalers but not to the retailers My milk has gone up and I’m talking about ordinary families You don’t buy a car everyday but I’m talking about groceries and things of everyday use Senior Congress leaders have been trying to give their suggestions to Rahul Gandhi and high command in public Your take Every leader be it Nehru Ji Shastri Ji Morarji Desai or PV Narasimha Rao evolves their own way and style I would say yes give him advice and he should know your perception because information helps in decision making but please let him decide He is evolving he is not a leader who has 40 years of experience and I think it’s unfair to give him advice through channels that are not private Your advice and my advice will be different so please let him decide whose advice to take He is very committed and he’s learning What about Priyanka Gandhi’e entry into politics That’s a personal decision Some paper went ahead and wrote that Latika (her daughter) should come into politics she doesn’t want to What about the BJP’s prospects in the near future Right now they seem to be on a new high It will take a year or two for their graph to come down They’ve got a mandate for five years and the people’s verdict will come only after that How it will impact us it will all come out then At the moment the impression is that they have nothing new to offer I don’t think I should use that word for our prime minister but yes Mr Modi is different Different as in he’s very visible he likes to be visible Like Manmohan Singh became visible only when it was necessary and this was true for many other prime ministers as well You didn’t find Indira Gandhi coming on every two minutes or Rajiv Gandhi when media came of age Last question what about AAP Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Do you think Kejriwal was Disruptor in Chief Oh yes oh yes certainly he was Frankly I didn’t take him seriously and that was a drawback in my understanding I thought everyone knew that you can’t possibly bring down power rates by 50 percent and no Government can go bankrupt just to be able to win an election and that’s probably why he ran away also I must say the media played a big role in it The media you saw everyday showing Rahul Gandhi Narendra Modi and this fellow as the next PM of this country He sat on a dharna outside the Railway Bhavan as chief minister The secretariat had become a place of public rowdyism people shouting that my work has not been done someone climbing up the table That’s not administration so people have realized a lot of his gimmickry What about Delhi elections We have to pick up our propaganda I suggested we meet people in groups meet the Ulemas teachers lawyers and the RWA’s We created over 4000 RWA’s they are there and we need to reach out to them Reach out to the women who got pensions Rs 1500 for a widow is the highest in the country One of the points of view given to me by the people was “why did you do so much” They said “ye sab to ho gaya ab kya karne ki zarurat hai ab badlo” that’s why I said there was fatigue People have a
