India Elections 'Vote me for jobs' isn't exactly what ...

‘Vote me for jobs’ isn’t exactly what Maneka Gandhi told Muslims in

What were the words of Union minister Maneka Gandhi after she said, 'I am winning; I am winning with the help and love of the people'?


: A video allegedly of has surfaced in which she has heard making a statement addressing voters, which has infuriated many or, at least, given them a political opportunity.

Maneka Gandhi translated

Maneka said, “I am winning. I am winning with the help and love of the people. But if I win without Muslims, I would not like it very much. Because I tell you that would leave me with some bitterness. Then, when a Muslim comes to seek work, I might think, what difference does it make?”

“After all, the job is a kind of bargain, rightly or wrongly. It is not that we all carry the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi that we would go on giving, but in the elections, we only get a beating (from Muslims). Isn’t that how it happens? You have to recognise this. I can win both with you and without you.”

“This is the message you ought to spread. I have come with an offer of friendship. You may ask the people of how I was. If ever you feel I have transgressed, do not vote for me again,” Maneka asserted.

“But if you feel I have come here with an open mind to embrace you all, if you feel you may need me in the future… I have ensured my win in this election. Now you will need me indeed. But for that need of tomorrow, you must lay the foundation stone today. This is the time. When the result of your polling booth arrives, whether I get 50 or 100 votes from here would determine how much I would stand by you,” the Union minister said.

Hindi original

To make sure Sirf News has translated the original speech, which was in Hindi, maintaining its spirit, the exact words of the minister follow.

“मैं जीत रही हूं। लोगों की मदद और प्यार से मैं जीत रही हूं। लेकिन अगर मेरी जीत मुसलमानों के बिना होगी, तो मुझे बहुत अच्छा नहीं लगेगा क्योंकि इतना मैं बता देती हूं कि दिल खट्टा हो जाता है। फिर जब मुसलमान आता है काम के लिए तो मैं सोचती हूं कि रहने दो, क्या फ़र्क पड़ता है।

आख़िर नौकरी एक सौदेबाज़ी भी तो होती है, बात सही है कि नहीं। ये नहीं कि हम सब महात्मा गांधी की छठी औलाद हैं कि हम लोग देते ही जाएंगे, देते ही जाएंगे। और फिर चुनावों में मार खाते जाएंगे। सही है बात कि नहीं? आपको ये पहचानना होगा। ये जीत आपके बिना भी होगी, आपके साथ भी होगी।

और ये चीज़ आपको सभी जगह फैलानी होगी। जब मैं दोस्ती का हाथ लेकर आई हूं। पीलीभीत में पूछ लें, एक भी बंदे से फ़ोन से पूछ लें कि मेनका गांधी वहां कैसे थीं। अगर आपको कहीं भी लगे कि हमसे गुस्ताख़ी हुई है, तो हमें वोट मत देना।

लेकिन अगर आपको लगे कि हम खुले हाथ, खुले दिल के साथ आए हैं। आपको लगे कि कल आपको मेरी ज़रूरत पड़ेगी। ये इलेक्शन तो मैं पार कर चुकी हूं। अब आपको मेरी ज़रूरत पड़ेगी। अब आपको ज़रूरत के लिए नींव डालनी है तो यही वक़्त है। जब आपके पॉलिंग बूथ का नतीजा आएगा और उस नतीजे में सौ वोट निकलेंगे या 50 वोट निकलेंगे और उसके बाद जब आप काम के लिए आएंगे तो वही होगा मेरा साथ।”

Congress spokesperson latched onto the opportunity to draw the attention of the Election Commission immediately. He wrote on Twitter:

How could the AAP hold its horses? Abhijeet Dipke of the party tweeted soon:

But Bollywood actor Payal Rohatgi wouldn’t let the complaints go unchallenged. She tweeted:
