New Delhi [India]: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday condemned the statement given by Leader of opposition in Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge and said that the latter does not have the right to speak against the saffron party.
“Mr Kharge must know that he is speaking for the family which has abused democracy and independence which this country has got. He has no right to speak against the BJP,” BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao told ANI.
In a thinly veiled attack on Congress, Rao alleged that India’s independence has mostly benefitted only one political family.
“They have over the past several decades used their position to perpetuate the family and dynastic rule. This Congress Party and Nehru- Gandhi dynasty is associated with all the ills of this country like imposition of emergency, dictatorship and rampant corruption that this country has never seen before,” he added.
Rao added that the BJP is there to ensure the fundamental rights of people and ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.’
Earlier, Kharge hit out at the BJP regime in the Parliament and said, “For the unity of the country, Mahatma Gandhi, former pm Indira Gandhi sacrificed so much. Who came from your house? Not even a single dog came.”
According to Kharge, while speaking on the vote of thanks motion for President’s speech, the government made many tall promises like bullet trains but have failed to live up to them.
He also said that government has failed in MGNREGA.(ANI)
