Both Rahul Gandhi and Sharad Pawar should be allowed to have different personal views on Adani, Kapil Sibal said.
Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal on Sunday said Sharad Pawar and Rahul Gandhi having different opinions on Sharad Pawar is not an example of disunity in the opposition. Both are allowed to have their views. “You should allow different parties to have different views. We should allow Rahul Gandhi to have a view on an individual and Sharad Pawar also have his point of view. That should not be an example of disunity,” Kapil Sibal said in an interview with news agency PTI. Read | Pawar softens stand on JPC probe into Adani issue
“If Rahul Gandhi has a point of view in the context of crony capitalism in India, I think Sharad Pawar ji would not be averse to a platform relating to crony capitalism, that subsumes individuals. So what we need is to have these broad platforms on the basis of which we can ensure that the Opposition is united,” he said.
Political parties can have differences but from a broader perspective, the possibility of consensus is much greater, Sibal said. “If you narrow down issues then you will have differences among political parties. If you have a broad collaborative platform which does not deal with narrow issues, the possibility of consensus is much greater,” the former Union minister who quit Congress last year said.
