Minister Nitin Gadkari Says He Often Feels Like “Quitting Politics”

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari stated that he sometimes thought of quitting politics and that politics had now become more about power than about social or developmental change.

According to the reports, at an event in Nagpur, Gadkari said “We need to understand what the word politics means. Is politics samajkaran (social work), rashtrakaran (nation building), vikaskaran (developmental work) or just sattakaran (a game of power)?. Since the time of Mahatma Gandhi — politics was part of a social movement. It was more about social work and nation-building. But now we see 100 percent sattakaran (power play).”

The Member of Parliament from Nagpur, who helms Union portfolios such as road transport and highways, was speaking at an event to honour social worker and former legislative council member (MLC) Girish Gandhi.

“When Girish bhau was in politics, I would discourage him. I think a lot about when I should quit politics. There are more things worth doing in life than politics,” Gadkari further added.

Gandhi, a former MLC with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), quit the party in 2014. A close associate of Gadkari, he has steered clear of joining any other political party since then.
