In a recent turn of events, Union minister Suresh Gopi found himself at the center of a controversy after his remarks about former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi sparked debate and confusion. Known for his candid statements, the actor-turned-politician sought to clear the air and provide context to his controversial comments.

During a recent interaction, Suresh Gopi addressed the media to clarify his statement where he referred to Indira Gandhi as the “mother of India.” According to him, his words were unfortunately misinterpreted. “What did I say? As far as the Congress is concerned… whether anyone likes it or not… K Karunakaran is the father of the Congress party in Kerala. In India, its mother is Indira Gandhi. I said this from my heart,” he explained.

The Minister of State for Petroleum and Tourism continued to express admiration for Indira Gandhi, emphasizing her pivotal role in shaping post-independence India. “I have to make these attributions anyway. I cannot forget a person who had worked sincerely for the country only because she belonged to the political rival party,” he added.

Suresh Gopi, who recently clinched the Thrissur Lok Sabha seat, marking a historic win for the BJP in Kerala, also reflected on his political journey and personal affiliations. Despite his roots in a Congress family and a brief association with the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), the student wing of the CPI(M), during his college days, he highlighted that his choices were more emotional than political.

“I will live my life emotionally as well, acceptable to all classes of life, all segments of life, all levels of life… My parentage, my traditions, the essence of Sanatana Dharma – I have to perform all those valuable traits,” he shared.

The Thrissur Lok Sabha elections witnessed a fierce three-way contest among major candidates from the Congress, BJP, and CPI, underscoring the significance of Gopi’s victory for the BJP in the state.

Suresh Gopi’s clarification comes amidst ongoing discussions about political legacies and personal perspectives, highlighting the complexities of navigating India’s diverse political landscape. His remarks, while stirring debate, also underscore the nuanced interpretations that often accompany political statements in the public eye.
