Nitin Gadkari jokes in viral video: ‘CM unhappy as he doesn’t know when he will be removed’

Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari recently made a statement which ironically reflected the condition of the leaders of his own party, the ruling BJP. Hitting upon the chief ministers, MLAs and ministers without naming them, he said that 'everyone is sad in today's situation' during his visit to Rajasthan.
"An MLA is unhappy because he did not become minister; a minister is unhappy because he did not get the right portfolio or did not become the CM; a CM is unhappy because he does not know when he can be removed," said Gadkari while addressing a seminar on ‘Parliamentary System and People's Expectations’ in Rajasthan Legislative Assembly in Jaipur.
Gadkari further pointed out that the real objective of politics is to bring about a change in the life of the common man standing last in the queue but “unfortunately, it is considered nowadays a means to grab power”.
What makes the statement more interesting and rather ironic is that it came soon after former Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani was replaced by Bhupendra Patel in a surprise move by the BJP. Of course, Rupani didn’t let out even the slightest hint of being unhappy.
This did not just happen in Gujarat. Recently, Karnataka also saw a change of CM as
Basavaraj Bommai replaced BS Yediyurappa.
However, Uttarakhand became the state that really stood out in this regard. The state saw three Chief Ministers in four months.
