He has asked the Congress to be strong as an opposition. Speaking at the function of a Hindi news channel News Nation, Gadkari said that Vajpayee and Nehru were the two ideal leaders of India’s democracy and both used to say that I will follow my democratic dignity. Gadkari said that the legacy of Atal Bihari Vajpayee is an inspiration for him and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru has a great contribution to Indian democracy.

Instead of disrupting the house, it is necessary to reach out to the people
Nitin Gadkari said these things during a conversation about the uproar in Parliament during the monsoon session. Business in both houses of Parliament was hit by continued opposition’s resistance to the three agricultural laws, rising oil prices and the Pegasus spying case. Recalling his time as the Leader of the Opposition in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, Gadkari said that he too had disrupted the proceedings of the Assembly. During that time when he met Vajpayee, he said that this is not a democratic way but it is more important to convey his message to the people.
