Parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar said that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s claim of possessing information about PM Modi’s personal corruption were made out of desperation.
The comment came at a time when a sting operation aired by a tv channel showed that old notes were being exchanged for new ones at the Congress’ headquarters. Parliament was adjourned in the midst of slogan shouting today, where Rahul Gandhi claimed accused the government of letting him speak in the House. NDTV quoted him as saying, “Read my lips…the PM is personally terrified of the info I have, we have.”
But Kumar told The Indian Express that Rahul and MPs from Congress and other Opposition parties have held up Parliament for the last 20 days. NDA has made it very clear that they are ready for a debate regarding Modi’s move against black money.
HRD minister Prakash Javadekar has also said that the Congress is making such allegations because their wrongdoings have been revealed. According to him, Modi has the support of 125 crore people because of his unquestionable record.
The winter session of the Parliament which began on November 16, and ends on December 16, was disturbed due to frequent disruptions. Government planned to discuss a number of crucial bills, including the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill, which are now pushed to the Budget session in January.
