New Delhi: Union Minister Jairam Ramesh was today ticked off by Congress over his lavish praise for Aam Aadmi Party. In a terse reaction to queries on Ramesh's views, party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said such remarks can only come from a person who is not a political worker and has got prominence in the party without undergoing the ‘rigours'.

However, he said he was not reffering to any particular individual.

“It may be the opinion of some persons. They may be over enthusiastic. But if you see minutely, only those persons have illusions, who themselves were not political workers, who did not suffer that pain. They do not know what pain one undergoes in forming a political party and working as a political activist.

“How much struggle one has to undergo before he gets an identity. Those whose identities are established all of a sudden can say anything because they have not felt that pain, not undergone that rigour,” he told reporters here when asked about Ramesh's remarks on AAP yesterday.
