The senior minister made it clear that “neither there is anything like this in my mind nor RSS has any such thing. Nation comes supreme for us,” Mr Gadkari told news agency PTI in an interview.
“I do not see dreams, neither I go to anyone nor I do any lobbying. I am not in this race… I my telling you from my heart,” he said.

“I have not done any calculation, never set targets – neither in politics nor in work. Mai to chala jidhar chale rasta (I follow the path wherever it leads). I accomplished whatever was assigned to me,” Mr Gadkari told PTI.
