New Delhi: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday termed the meeting of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi with the migrants in Delhi a “dramabaazi” and said the Congress should “be more responsible” and work together with the Centre in the current scenario.
“They are wasting time in talking to the migrants who are headed home. Better would have been if they carried their children and suitcases instead of just talking,” referring to Rahul Gandhi’s meeting to the migrants.
The Finance Minister said she is very sad to say, but she is “now using their words and call them “dramabaz”. What happened on Saturday was not dramabazi? They wasted the time of the migrants in just talking,” she added.
Saying that it is time to join hands, Sitharaman added that she is “requesting the Congress to work together in this situation. It feels sad to see the picture of the migrants.”
“Let us speak responsibly, let us deal with our migrants responsibly,” Sitharaman urged Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
The remarks came a day after Rahul Gandhi on Saturday evening went to meet migrant workers camped out near a flyover in Delhi’s southeast.
