Should help in ending his Lok Sabha membership.
BJP President JP Nadda has released a video in which he has asked Rahul Gandhi to apologise. He said- It is unfortunate that the Congress has become involved in anti-national activities. After repeated rejections by the public, Rahul Gandhi has become a permanent part of this anti-national toolkit.
Rahul Gandhi said – PM is scared on Adani issue, he will not allow me to speak in Parliament
On Thursday, Rahul Gandhi was saying in the press conference that unfortunately I am a Member of Parliament, on which Jairam Ramesh interrupted him and said that a joke would be made on it. You say that it is unfortunate for you that I am an MP.
On Thursday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has given clarification regarding the speech given in London. He said on Thursday that there was nothing in my speech that I did not extract from the public record. Everything was collected from here and there. This whole issue is to distract. Actually, the Prime Minister is scared of the Adani issue. They should tell what is their relation with Adani.
He also said that he will answer in detail in Parliament on the issue of the speech given in London. I am an MP and Parliament is my platform. Rahul said that Adani is getting contracts in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Australia. The PM could not answer what happened between the Prime Minister and the Australian PM.
I am a member of the Lok Sabha. It is my responsibility to keep my point in the Parliament. If I get a chance to speak in Parliament tomorrow, I will present my views on this subject in detail there. However, it seems that they will not allow me to speak in the Parliament House.
