Accha toh hum chalte hai: Maneka Gandhi on why she, son Varun Gandhi were not made ministers

Former Union minister and Sultanpur MP Maneka Gandhi Sunday thanked the people of the constituency for electing her.

Gandhi, who arrived in Sultanpur for the first time after the Lok Sabha elections, spoke about development for every section of the society. She is here on a three-day tour.

The former women and child development minister also said a person who wins with a big margin and is a parliamentarian for a long time, is made the Protem Speaker, and she is one of them.

According to some reports, Gandhi is likely to be appointed as the Protem Speaker.

On being asked why she was not offered a ministerial berth this time, the BJP leader evaded a direct reply. She later told reporters, “You can get the answer from the people of Sultanpur.”

When asked why her son Varun Gandhi was also not made a minister, she added, “Acha to hum chalte hai (I take your leave).”
