New Delhi: Day after senior Congress leader Tom Vadakkan joined BJP, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that Tom Vadakkan is not a big leader when he was asked about Vadakkan decision to move to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the Lok Sabha election 2019.
“Vadakkan? No, no Vadakkan is not a big leader,” Rahul Gandhi said.
Congress leader Tom Vadakkan, defected to BJP on Thursday stating Congress ‘questioning of the integrity of the armed forces’ as the reason for his defection.
