Stepping up their attack on Rahul Gandhi for his “democracy under brutal attack” remark in the UK, BJP leaders, including Union ministers, on Thursday demanded an apology from the Congress leader insisting that he was “not above Parliament”.
We will campaign across the country for an apology from Rahul Gandhi. It’s his habit to speak baseless things. Neither for once did he say today that he’s denying his remarks of ‘America and Europe’s interference’, BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad was quoted as saying by ANI
The former Law Minister Prasad further said, How long will Rahul Gandhi mislead the country? BJP again reiterates that he said that ‘America & Europe should take note of India’s democratic backsliding’. It’s his habit to insult the feelings of Indians by criticising Indian democracy abroad.
They alleged that Gandhi had insulted the country from foreign soil by asserting that the US and European nations were oblivious that a huge chunk of democratic model had come undone in India.
“India’s prestige has not been attacked in such a manner before. Political differences may be there but there cannot be a graver crime than to seek interference from foreign powers. Anger prevails across the country for the grave insult Rahul Gandhi has inflicted upon what even the world acknowledges as the mother of democracy,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi told reporters outside parliament.
