Anurag Thakur

Union Minister Anurag Thakur took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his “unfortunately I am MP” remark. Thakur said that sometimes truth comes out and it is really ‘unfortunate’ that he is MP.
The BJP leader’s remarks came a day after a clip of the press conference where Rahul Gandhi remarked, “Unfortunately I am a member of Parliament” and he was seen being corrected bv senior party leader Jairam Ramesh.
Anuirag Thakur while speaking to the reporters, said “Sometimes, the truth comes out naturally, and as Rahul rightly said, unfortunately, he is a member of the Parliament, because of the way he uses foreign soil to defame and spread lies about the same prestigious institution, the Parliament of India, of which unfortunately he is a member”.
Attacking Rahul Gandhi, Anurag Thakur said, “Today ‘RAHUL’ stands for ‘Regretful Awful Hateful Ungrateful Liar'”. The Union Minister further reiterated his demand for an unconditional apology.
“But he is still putting conditions to that. Is he above the rule of the land? Is he above the rules and procedures of the House? Does the Gandhi family still feel that they are above the country and the Parliament?” Thakur said.
“He (Rahul Gandhi) has to understand that the Parliament is run as per the rules and procedure of the house and as per the direction given by the honourable speaker. But that only happens if he comes to the house and reads the rules and procedures of the house. I believe he will understand that and come and apologise to the House and the Parliament,” Thakur further added.
