Gadkari takes dig at ministers for putting up their own cutouts

Pune, Sep 24 ( UNI) Union Minister Nitin Gadkari took a swipe at ministers who publicised their birthdays and became famous by putting up their own cutouts and hoardings, saying that these ‘shortcuts’ will not help in their political careers.
Speaking to students at a national conclave of Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad here, Gadkari, without taking any names, said he couldn’t understand why politicians “spend out of their pocket” to put their own cutouts in cities and towns.
“Do you think you can become a big leader by putting cutouts, publishing advertisements? Did Jayprakash Narayan, George Fernandes and Atal Bihari Vajpayee use these methods? Please don’t take shortcuts as shortcuts will cut you short,” the Union Minister said.
