Expelled Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam says,
-The Congress party started insulting me. I have faced a lot of insults, yet I did not leave the party. The promise that I made to Rajiv Gandhi, used to come in between and hence I did not leave the party.
-I also thought that the person who does not know how to respect people who stood with their grandparents, mother, father…leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad, Kamal Nath, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Digvijaya Singh, and Anand Sharma used to stay with Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, and Sonia Gandhi. They were the people who held the hands of Rahul Gandhi and made him learn how to walk. I questioned myself, that if the person does not respect such big leaders, then it won’t be a big thing for him to insult me.
-Today at this age, I am taking this resolution that I will stand with Narendra Modi all my life. Every leader is asking me, what was the fault of Acharya Pramod Krishnam? I want to thank all those leaders who supported me in being in the Congress party. The person who does not respect his mother or sister, how will he respect the country?”
