We did not want Ghulam Nabi Azad Saheb to get independence from Parliament. Because I understand that since he came into politics, there has been no ministry in which he has not been a minister. I do not understand why the Congress party is not able to use this experience.

There is a chance to tell the truth, will tell the truth – Sibal
Kapil Sibal said, ‘There is an opportunity to tell the truth and will only speak the truth today. Why are we gathered here? The truth is that the Congress party seems to be weakening us. That is why we have gathered here. Gathered earlier also. We have to gather and strengthen it. We did not want Ghulam Nabi Azad Saheb to get independence from Parliament. ‘
‘Why Congress is not able to use experience’
Sibal further said, ‘Ask why? Because I understand that since he came into politics, there has been no ministry in which he has not been a minister. There is no leader whom he does not know. When he called any leader on the telephone, he used to come and meet him. I do not understand why the Congress party is not able to use this experience. ‘
