Defence Minister Rajnath Singh slammed Rahul Gandhi for “insulting India in London” and demanded in the Lok Sabha that the Congress Leader should apologize.
“Rahul Gandhi, who is a member of this House, insulted India in London. I demand that his statements should be condemned by all members of this House and he should be asked to apologise before the House,” Singh said in the lower house of the Parliament.
Rahul Gandhi made several allegations as he attacked the BJP-led government during a recent interaction at Chatham House in London. He alleged that the microphones of the Opposition leaders in the Parliament are often silenced.
Gandhi even claimed that despite receiving economic and financial support from India, the US and Europe are not doing enough to reestablish democracy there.
The Congress leader claimed that numerous national institutions were in danger.
“It shocked me how successful they have been at capturing the different institutions of our country. Press, Judiciary, Parliament, and Election Commission are all under threat and are controlled in one way or the other,” Gandhi said.
He also termed the RSS a “fundamentalist” and “fascist” organisation alleging that it has captured pretty much all of India’s institutions.
