"As BJP president I had to maintain dignity and work within boundaries....Now I am a free man. Congress' boat is about to sink and when our party comes to power, there would be no Chidambaram or Sonia to save them (IT officials)," Gadkari said addressing party workers, a day after demitting office.
On home turf for the first time since the on-field inquiries by taxmen on Tuesday put paid to his hope of getting a second straight term as BJP chief, Gadkari said,"Earlier CBI was doing Congress's bidding and now the Income tax people are following suit.
"I know how they are hatching conspiracies against me sitting in Delhi, Nagpur and Pune....I also know their names.
Some people in the organisation sympathetic to me and BJP have told me about this," he said.
IT's on-field inquiries at 11 premises in Mumbai belonging to alleged shell companies related to the Purti Group on January 22, a day ahead of the election for the post of BJP president, which Gadkari looked all set to win with RSS backing, had forced a rethink and he was finally elbowed out of the contest.
Attacking Congress' "dynastic politics", the former BJP president said,"Ek malkin baki sab naukar (There is only one master and rest all servants."
He also accused Congress-led UPA government of "blackmailing" Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and BJP chief Mayawati using the CBI.
"Political crises are part of one's life and I am not perturbed by such things. I am doing social work to help the poor and farmers in the suicide belt of Maharashtra and will continue to do so," Gadkari said and slammed a section of media for targeting him.
Amid loud cheers from his supporters who demanded that he contest the next Lok Sabha election from Nagpur, Gadkari said,"you (workers) will contest and you will win."
Hundreds of party workers, including state BJP president Sudhir Mungantiwar, Nagpur Mayor Anil Sole, besides several legislators and party functionaries had assembled near the airport where he addressed them.
Gadkari was later driven in an open-top vehicle in a convoy by his supporters to his residence 'Gadkari Wada' in Mahal area of the city.
* Where will you go when Congress loses next election and BJP comes to power?
* I know the names of these officials who are doing the Congress' bidding
* Media have nothing to do with truth and lies, they just have shops to run.
* Lies will not take you (I-T officers) far. There will come a time when Sonia Gandhi and Chidambaram will not be able to save you
So, they are the leaders. The way they behave when in opposition indicates how they are going to be when in Power. So people, BEWARE of these JHANJHATI PEOPLE while voting nex time.

SATYAM BADET, APRIYAM SATYAM MA BADET. it is unbecoming of Mr Gadkari to speak like this. if he is innocent , no body will be able to tauch him.why to blame the govt officials. they are obedient govt servants,just obeying their master's order.if at all mr gadkari wants to do anything, first he should proove himself innocent and when his party comes to power he should use his good office t o investigate the corruption charges against congress leaders and get them punished. sine independence , there has been many many corruption charges against so many congress leaders but till date no one has been punished. so mr gadkari ur task is to first , proove urself innocent, second, get ur party enough seats to form the govt. on its own and then investigate all the corruption charges against n get them punished and last but not the least, get all black money from abroad back to India.if u can do all these, the country n its people will be immensely grateful to u.
be honest and face the corruption charges instead of threatening investigation officers and blaming others for your crime

One does not have authority has the audocity to threatens, one has the authoity is expected to be a holi cow.What a fun !!!BJP thy name is Hypocracy!!!!!
