FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact checked the above post and found it to be misleading.
On running the above statement through a Google search, we did not find any authentic evidence that could confirm that Gadkari made the above statement in the first place.

Moreover, since Nitin Gadkari is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet colleague, if he had indeed made such a statement praising Congress leaders, it would have made headlines. But there was no such report about Gadkari making this statement.
We also scanned his official social media profiles (Facebook & Twitter), but there was nothing close to what is being attributed to him.
Hence, the above information establishes that the quote in question has been falsely attributed to Nitin Gadkari.
