He condemned Rahul Gandhi for calling hom a BJP agent. “What can I say? We wanted to change the party and improve it, but Rahul Gandhi and his people don’t want to change. They attack those who make suggestions. Good leaders offer leadership.” He stated.

He recalled the time when Indira Gandhi was arrested and how he had asked people to come. Azad said that they were able to mobilize lakes of people, and their reaction was spontaneous.
