Congress president said that those “crushing and destroying democracy” are talking of saving it.
NEW DELHI — Congress president and leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday said that there is no rule of law under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Addressing a press conference at Vijay Chowk outside Parliament, soon after both Houses were adjourned over protests related to Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s remarks in London, Kharge said, “There is no rule of law and democracy under Modi ji. They are running the country like a dictatorship, and then they talk about democracy.”
He added that those “crushing and destroying democracy” are talking of saving it.
Over the Adani issue, Kharge said, “We are demanding the constitution of a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) on the Adani stocks issue. When we raise this issue, then mikes are switched off and a ruckus erupts in the House.”
However, he added that the opposition is together and will continue to demand a JPC on the Adani issue. — IANS
