PM afraid of Congress, Rahul Gandhi comments on Modi's parliament speech

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech both in the Lok Sabha as well as in the Rajya Sabha showed that he was afraid of the Congress party as it speaks the truth, while he spread lies.

Gandhi said, "The whole speech of the PM was about Congress, what Congress did not do and Nehru did or not do. But nothing on BJP's promises. There is fear, he is a little afraid of the Congress." 

Replying to the Motion of Thanks on President’s Address, on Monday in the lower house as well as on Tuesday in the upper house PM Modi had attacked Congress on several issues and referred to the first PM Jawaharlal Nehru extensively to attack the former PM on his policies.

Reacting further, Gandhi said, "If you like abusing the Congress and Nehru, be my guest do it, but do your job." Referring to Nehru, he further said, "My great grandfather served this country. He gave his entire life to this country. So, I don’t need anyone’s certificate for my great grandfather.” 

Gandhi said he had posed several important and curtail questions to him like the issues of 'two Indias', China and Pakistan 'getting together and the attack on India's institutions, in the Lok Sabha however the PM did not address any of them. 

He pointed out that he had earlier warned that Covid-19 was a danger 'but the prime minister did not agree' and even now he was pointing out that there is a danger from China and Pakistan and this is a serious issue. 

"This is no joke. The other two issues must also be taken seriously. These are not jokes. The country is being weakened. The prime minister said nothing on these things," he added.
