The Congress party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that, "The BJP party is running a malicious ugly whisper campaign to malign Congress party's senior-most leaders. Kamal Nath is not only one of the most experienced leaders of the party but has been the architect of the strategy and narrative of the Congress party through challenging times."
Spokesperson further added that, Mr Nath has stayed with the Congress party through thick and thin "be it from 1977 to 1980 (the period after Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared Emergency) or between 1989 and 2004 (when the party wasn't in power), and then as part of the government.

I deny them categorically and without qualification."
Mr. Surjewala said on the leaders who are quitting the Congress party, he stated, "The mettle of a leader is tested not when the party is in power but during challenging times. Those who have left the party can find the best place for themselves in the BJP as that party is prone to attracting defectors bereft of any ideology, direction or commitment to their own party."
