“They are not born in the party. They have lived in the party. They have only suggested a course correction and free and fair elections and a leader who is available to lead the party round the clock,” he mentioned.
Vadakkan claimed that the denial by the Congress that Rahul Gandhi made any assertion linking the letter’s signatories to the BJP was an “afterthought”.
