Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his attack on the Central government in Parliament for not issuing a clarification on issues such as the India-China border dispute and rising unemployment, saying that lot more accurate were provided by concerned ministries and he had also spoken on some subjects whenever and however it was necessary.
In an exclusive interview with news agency ANI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the former Congress head, describing him as someone who does not listen and does not stay in the House.
PM Modi stated that he and his government do not abuse anyone and believe in discussion, emphasizing that he appreciates debate in Parliament.
I do not know how to attack (someone), because it is not in my nature to do so. However, based on facts and logic, the media may interpret my statements in the House in order to incite some controversy, he added.
The Prime Minister was responding to a question about Congress accusations that throughout his speeches in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address, he did not reply to Rahul Gandhi’s questions about unemployment or the India-China issue, instead of attacking the Congress party.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi stated the BJP-led administration was “afraid of Congress” in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s forceful attack on Congress during his addresses in Parliament.
He said that the Prime Minister’s “fear of Congress” was mirrored in Parliament and that he concentrated on criticizing the party rather than discussing the BJP’s pledges.
On the first day of the Opposition’s debate in the Lok Sabha on February 2, the previous Congress president launched a scathing attack on the Central government and Prime Minister Modi over unemployment, inflation, and the India-China border problem.
In his response to the Lok Sabha discussion on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address on February 7, PM Modi stated that the Congress agenda is “divide and rule,” and that the party has become the leader of the “tukde tukde” gang.
