Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s sharp attack on the government
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge launched a scathing attack on the government on this issue through a post from his official X handle on Monday. He wrote, “There was an attack on Parliament on 13 December 2023, today again the Modi government has attacked Parliament and democracy. By suspending 92 opposition MPs so far, all democratic systems have been thrown into the dustbin by the dictatorial Modi government.
He wrote, “We have two simple and straightforward demands – 1. The Union Home Minister should give a statement in both the Houses of Parliament on the serious breach in the security of Parliament. 2. There should be a detailed discussion on this.
The Congress President further wrote, “The Prime Minister can give interviews to newspapers, the Home Minister can give interviews to TV channels… but in the Parliament of India, which represents both the ruling and opposition parties of the country, the BJP is not responsible for its accountability.” Running away from! In an opposition-less Parliament, the Modi government can now get important pending laws passed by the muscle of majority without any discussion, debate or disagreement!
Reactions of Congress leaders
Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary said that dictatorship has reached its peak in the current government. Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh alleged that Modishahi is another name for dictatorship, it is not just the suspension of MPs but the suspension of democracy. Gaurav Gogoi, deputy leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha and one of the suspended MPs, alleged that the government is bulldozing the Parliament to crush the opposition. Congress organization general secretary KC Venugopal alleged that Parliament has become a place of suspension.
What did Mamta Banerjee and Manoj Jha say?
TMC chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that the suspension of MPs shows that BJP is scared. RJD leader Manoj Jha said that the government which is not able to speak on the security lapse in Parliament House, what will it say on Galwan? Suspend the remaining MPs also… Let us tell you that the winter session of Parliament started on 4th December and will continue till 22nd December.
