Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, declared in Kaushambi, Uttar Pradesh, that Rahul Gandhi would not be pardoned for the manner Congress had interfered with Parliamentary business because of his disqualification.
Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, attacked the Congress on Friday at the opening of the “Kaushambi Festival-2023” in Uttar Pradesh, warning that its politics of dynasty and dictatorship by one family were in jeopardy. “They (Congress) say democracy is in danger. It is not democracy that is in danger, it is your family that is in danger. People don’t want the Idea of India to remain in danger. The idea of one dynasty, your politics promoting your family is in danger. It’s not India’s democracy that is in danger, but the autocracy of your family that is in danger,” he stated.
According to a senior BJP politician, “casteism, dynastic politics, and appeasement” are the main problems that the grand old party is causing for Indian democracy. “PM Modi defeated casteist politics in a way that the SP and the BSP are nowhere to be seen. He defeated dynastic parties and ended appeasement. This is why you are scared,” he added. Amit Shah also addressed the opposition’s criticism over Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as a Lok Sabha member, saying: “The (Parliament) session ended yesterday. Never in the history of independent India had the Budget session ended without proper discussions and proceedings. Opposition members didn’t let Parliament function, the reason was Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as a member.”
“The Supreme Court implemented this law with its judgment. Manmohan Singh wanted to amend it to protect Lalu Prasad Yadav, but Rahul stopped him. The Surat Court convicted Rahul and he was disqualified. So far, 17 members have been expelled and the same happened with Rahul. For this, Congress MPs wore black attire and stalled Parliament proceedings.” “I want to tell Rahul that it’s the duty of all citizens to follow the law and you were a parliamentarian. You can challenge the conviction and fight it out in court. You have wasted Parliament’s time, the country will not forgive you for this,” he stated.
In reference to recent comments made in London by the former Wayanad MP, he questioned if any politician could “badmouth” India abroad. “You have ample space here, you choose your ground. The BJP will be ready to respond to your remarks,” the senior BJP leader added. Amit Shah is in Uttar Pradesh for a single day. He will lay the cornerstone for many development projects totaling Rs 4,567 crore later on in the day in Azamgarh, according to officials, according to news agency PTI. They stated that he would lay the cornerstone for the Hariharpur Sangeet Mahavidyalaya at Namdarpur, Azamgarh.
