Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who attended the BJP’s parliamentary party meeting on Tuesday, told the leaders that the more the party rises and succeeds, the more the opposition will attack.
This morning’s BJP parliamentary party meeting was held in the Parliament complex here. This was the first time this meeting took place during the session’s ongoing second half. The meeting began with BJP MPs congratulating PM Modi on leading them to three significant victories in the recently concluded Assembly elections in the northeastern states. The party leaders congratulated PM Modi on the party’s victory in Tripura, Meghalaya, and Nagaland, where they have a coalition government.
According to sources, the Prime Minister said, “The more, the BJP continues to taste success and rise, the more the attacks from the other side will increase. Have to be ready for a strong fight”.
PM Modi’s remark came at a time when the Parliament has been in a logjam in which the opposition continues to demand a JPC on the Adani-Hindenburg issue, and the BJP has demanded an apology from Rahul Gandhi for insulting the prime minister.
While the opposition parties continue to call Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as MP from Lok Sabha an attack on democracy, BJP and NDA MPs continue to attack the congress party and Rahul Gandhi for insulting Veer Savarkar and OBC community.
On Monday, the opposition marched from the Parliament complex to Vijay Chowk in protest of the Centre’s refusal to convene a JPC into the Adani case.
Mallikarjun Kharge, the Congress president, lashed out at the Centre over the Adani issue and Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as a Lok Sabha MP, saying that opposition leaders are wearing black to demonstrate that democracy is being trampled in the country.
Kharge claimed that the Centre used the investigation agencies to sway those who refused to submit to the government.
“I thank the opposition leaders for raising their voices against Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification. Why are we here in black clothes? We want to show that PM Modi is ending democracy in the country. He first finished autonomous bodies, then they put up their own govt everywhere by threatening those who had won polls. Then they used ED, CBI to use bend those who didn’t bow,” Kharge said.
