Rahul Gandhi interfered as an ‘extra-constitutional’ authority during Manmohan Singh’s UPA: Former Union Minister S M Krishna

SM Krishna, one of the tallest leaders of the country, said that he had to resign from the post of External Affairs minister as it had become unbearable to continue due to constant interference of Rahul Gandhi. 

Former Karnataka Chief Minister and senior BJP leader SM Krishna, who was Minister of State of External Affairs in Dr Manmohan Singh’s UPA government, has revealed that he was forced to quit the Congress party due to constant interference from Rahul Gandhi.

SM Krishna, one of the tallest leaders of the country, said that he had to resign from the post of External Affairs minister as it had become unbearable to continue due to constant interference of Rahul Gandhi.

Addressing the BJP workers in Maddur, SM Krishna further said that he had to resign from as Rahul Gandhi had issued an order stating that leaders above 80 years of age should not hold any ministry. The BJP leader, who had quit the party after serving 46 years in Congress, on Saturday took a jibe at the Congress party stating that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not have any say in deciding portfolio.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister SM Krishna’s statements indicated that Rahul Gandhi had no respect for former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh. He further added that Congress did not have any control over alliance parties. “It was then that all major scams like 2G spectrum, Commonwealth and coal were reported. Such situations arise when there’s no able leadership,” said Krishna.

“He (Rahul Gandhi) was not answerable to anyone – neither Parliament nor governance. He took decisions on which ordinance was necessary and struck down others. There were matters that were never brought to notice of even the minister. Cabinet was in discussion over passing an ordinance. But Rahul Gandhi, who was somewhere, tore a copy of the ordinance. It’s what they call extra-constitutional authority,” Krishna said while attacking Rahul Gandhi.

Meanwhile, Congress party has reacted to SM Krishna statements as Congress leader Dinesh Gundurao said, “Today when I hear his statements, even that 1% of respect I had for him is gone. For a person of his stature to speak like this, is absolutely disgusting. I don’t know what is making him speak like this.”

He further added that people are not content even in their old age, they want for more recognition, which drives them to say such things. “No damage to our party, it only damages his legacy. No BJP person is going to remember SM Krishna, it will only be Congress who will talk about him,” said Dinesh Gundurao while attacking senior leader SM Krishna.
