Will use social media, not advisement banners for LS poll campaigning: Gadkaritext_fields
Nagpur: Union Minister for Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said that he will use social mobile networks and social media platforms for the campaign during the 2024 general elections.
Stating that his work for social upliftment and down-to-earth attitude will help him to win his constituency, the minister said that he will use social media to reach out to people to seek votes and blessings.
He said that he will use social media and not the advertisement banners to put his good work for the development ahead of the people.
“The voters are smart. Husband votes for one party while the wife votes for the other. But they accept gifts and benefits from all political parties,” Gadkari said during an interview with noted Marathi actor Prashant Damle.
“My workers are my real political assets and not my family. Of course, my physical property will go to family members,” he said.
He further said that a suggestion by party colleagues to make his elder son an office bearer of the party was politely rejected by himself. “I won’t allow my son to sit next to me,” he said.
During the interview, Gadkari also disclosed that during his youth days, he would dream to marry ‘Dream Girl’ Hema Malini.
“After becoming a minister, one day when Hema Malini visited our house, I confessed to her about my dream. To my surprise, Hema Malini said she would have considered the decision. But I thought this would not have been possible during those days. I considered my wife as Hema Malini but my favourite heroine has always been Rekha,” he confessed.
