Nagpur: Union minister Nitin Gadkari in an event on Sunday said that a strong Congress party is necessary for democracy and has a sincere wish that the party becomes stronger.

The grand-old party faced an embarrassing loss in the assembly elections of the five states—Punjab, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Goa and Manipur. The union minister said it’s his ‘sincere wish’ that the Congress became stronger and that its leaders did not switch in despair.

Gadkari added that a weakened Congress meant regional parties taking up the opposition space, which ‘isn’t a good sign.’ “A strong Opposition is a need for democracy. Hence it is my sincere wish that the Congress party should become stronger. Also, with the Congress weakened, its place is being taken by regional parties which is not good for democracy. So the opposition should be strong,” Gadkari further said.

He urged Congress leaders not to lose hearts over defeats and stay with the party. He further said, “I wish with all my heart that the Congress remains strong. Those who follow the Congress ideology should remain in the party and stick to their convictions. They must continue to work and not despair over defeat. If there is defeat, one day there is victory too.”
