On Wednesday, Chaturvedi criticised the agriculture minister over rising sugar prices, saying Pawar was not only able to tackle the situation but had misrepresented facts on availability of sugar. Distancing itself from Chaturvedis remarks, AICC media department chairperson Janardan Dwivedi sent out a strong message that such actions were not welcome.
Whatever party would like to say in the future, it would say it officially. So far as expressing personal views are concerned, it advises all Congressmen not to express their so called personal views in public or through the media, Dwivedi said. He said that the partys views on the drought situation had already been stated through a CWC resolution recently.
