Not scared of threats, disqualification, prison sentences says Rahul Gandhi

A day after being disqualified from the Lok Sabha, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi claimed that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government was afraid of his questions about Adani and that democracy was under attack.

Rahul Gandhi stated that he will not “back down” from asking questions about the Adani stocks, despite threats, disqualification, and prison sentences. He was holding his first press conference since being disqualified from the Lok Sabha by a Surat court in a criminal defamation case in 2019.

Gandhi told reporters, “This is the whole drama that is been orchestrated to defend the Prime Minister from the simple question- Who’s Rs 20,000 crore went to Adani’s shell companies? I am not scared of these threats, disqualifications or prison sentences.”

He further added, “I am not interested in anything but the truth. I only speak the truth, it is my work and I will keep doing it even if I get disqualified or get arrested. This country has given me everything and that is why I do this.”

He continued, “I will keep asking questions on Adani issue, they cannot scare me by disqualification or putting me in jail. I won’t back down. Some ministers lied about me, that I sought help from foreign powers. But there is no such thing I have done. I will not stop asking questions, I will keep questioning the relationship between PM Modi and Adani.”

“I have said many times that democracy is being attacked in the country. We are seeing examples of this each day. I asked questions in the Parliament regarding the relationship between PM Modi and Adani,” said Congress leader.
