Rahul Gandhi: ‘Didn’t Say Anything Anti-India’ Stated On Amid Parliament Row2 min read
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi came to Parliament on Thursday demanding an apology from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for his comments in England. Wayanad MP said, “I didn’t speak anything anti-India (in the London seminar). If they allow, I will speak inside the Parliament.”
Parliament witnessed a massive stand-off between the government and the opposition parties demanding a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into the Adani-Hindenburg issue. The BJP has demanded that Rahul Gandhi apologize to Parliament for insulting India on foreign soil.
“What Rahul Gandhi says is the same language used by those who are anti-India both in the country and outside,” Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju said today. Congress reiterate BJP’s demand for an apology from the Congress leader. During a conversation in England, Gandhi said that democracy in India was under attack, while opposition leaders remained silent. His comments sparked massive protests in India, with BJP leaders accusing him of insulting Parliament.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s comment. “But it is unfortunate that from the soil of London, questions are being raised on Indian democracy. No force can weaken Indian democracy. But despite that, there are constant attempts by some people to attack Indian democracy”, stated the PM while poll-bound Karnataka.
Despite the pressure from the BJP, Congress is in no mood to relent, and Rahul Gandhi will not apologize. “It’s their conspiracy not to let the Parliament run and ignore our demand for a JPC probe in the Adani issue. They don’t want to discuss issues of unemployment & inflation. Earlier, on numerous occasions, Modi Ji spoke against India abroad. There is no question of apologizing”, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said.
