On Saturday, Indian Youth Congress activists protested outside Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National President JP Nadda’s residence over his remarks against Rahul Gandhi and Congress. The protesters were later detained by Delhi Police.
Notably, JP Nadda on Friday hit out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for stating in London that “Indian democracy is under attack.” While addressing a lecture at Cambridge University in London recently, Gandhi said, “Everybody knows and it’s been in the news a lot that Indian democracy is under pressure and under attack. I am an opposition leader in India, and we are navigating that (opposition) space.” Nadda said that democracy is not in danger, but Congress is.
“The actions of Congress and Rahul Gandhi are highly condemnable. Congress only knows how to divide people. It’s not democracy that is in danger, but your party,” Nadda said while addressing a public rally in the Chitradurga district of poll-bound Karnataka.
He further said that Rahul raised questions in a foreign land because people have “ignored” his party here in the country.
“Since all are ignoring Congress in India, Rahul Gandhi went abroad and raised questions about our democracy. Rahul Gandhi is speaking against India abroad. He must remember his grandmother Indira Gandhi brought Emergency.” Nadda said.
