PM Modi equates Congress’ behavior in Parliament with Emergency

New Delhi Aug 13 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit out at the Gandhi family and said that Congress Party with its repeated obstructions in the Parliament was displaying the attitude of Emergency days.

“Prime Minister Narandra Modi remembered the Emergency days and said that today similar behavior is being displayed by the Congress Party in the last 15 days in the Parliament. This is a reflection of the same behavior, work and sentiments as the Emergency,” Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy said.

Rudy said the politics of NDA is to save the country not a family.

“The Prime Minister said it clearly that the Congress wants to save their family and work for the family but we want to want to save the country and save democracy in the country,” he added.

Rudy further said that the Congress Party stalled the Parliament and wasted precious time to hinder the country’s development.

The Monsoon Session of Parliament was marred by repeated adjournments. A relentless Congress continuously demanded the resignations of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over the Lalit-Gate. The opposition also mounted pressure on the Centre over the Vyapam scam in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh.(ANI)
