Young entrepreneurs should remember the sentence from the autobiography of former US president Richard Nixon that the man is not finished when he is defeated but he is finished when he quits, Gadkari said. He also said human relationship is the biggest strength for anybody who is in business, social work, or politics.
“Hence, one should never indulge in use and throw. Be it good days or bad days, once you hold anyone’s hand, always hold on to it. Do not worship the rising sun,” said the BJP leader.

He goes on to talk about the time when, he was a young leader, he was asked to join the Congress party by a friend, and he refused.

“My friend once advised me to join the Congress, I said, I’d rather drown in a well than join the Congress party. I don’t like the ideology of the Congress,” he said. The friend he was talking about was Congress leader Shrikant Jichkar.

Notably, Nitin Gadkari was recently in news when he was dropped from his BJP’s parliamentary board.
