Union Minister Giriraj Singh launched a scathing attack on the Congress and the Gandhi family on Monday, saying the country had been humiliated because of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s “cowardice.”
Speaking to ANI, Singh said, “Merely using the surname ‘Gandhi’ the so-called family does not become Gandhi. The country was humiliated because of Nehru ji. The country was humiliated because of the cowardice of Nehru ji. Like a coward, Nehru ji handed over thousands of square kilometres of land to China. Tibet used to be our buffer state. He advocated for China in the United Nations for Tibet. He said Congress and the “so-called Gandhi family” consider democracy as a monarchy.
Asked about Congress and the Opposition members wearing black clothes in Lok Sabha on Monday, Singh said, “We do not have any objection whether they come in black, yellow or in red clothes. But the manner in which they tore the copies and insulted the chair of the Speaker of the House has shocked the Parliament and the parliamentary system. Congress should apologise.”
On Rahul Gandhi’s remarks over Savarkar, Singh said the Congress leader needs to take several births to understand the sacrifice of Savarkar.
“It will take many births for Rahul Gandhi to understand Savarkar. He should apologize to the country,” the BJP leader said.
Taking a jibe at Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Union Minister said, “Even after walking 3,600 km, the party had no benefit. Elections were held in three northeast states. They were defeated in all these three states.”
After Parliament reconvened at 11 a.m. on Monday, opposition protests again disrupted the ongoing Budget Session.
After party leader Rahul Gandhi was disqualified from the Lok Sabha last week, the Congress launched a nationwide protest.
Members of the Congress-led opposition marched outside Parliament on Monday, dressed in black and shouting slogans, demanding an investigation into the Adani case.
Former UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi joined the demonstrations outside Mahatma Gandhi’s statue.
