Mumbai: Congress General Secretary Gurudas Kamat on Saturday slammed his party colleague Sanjay Nirupam for his comments on NCP chief Sharad Pawar after he was chosen for Padma Vibhushan.
While congratulating Pawar for getting the second-highest civilian award, Kamat said this honour is not only to Pawar but also to his home state Maharashtra.
"I strongly condemn the intemperate language used by Sanjay Nirupam against Pawar. Political differences should not come in the way when the issue is about honour of the State and it's people," the AICC General Secretary maintained.
Nirupam had said bestowing the prestigious award on the former Union Agriculture Minister by the Modi Government showed a "hidden understanding" between NCP and BJP, who are political rivals.
In the past too, Kamat had publicly criticised the Mumbai Congress President over his handling of party affairs in the metropolis.
