In his first post-disqualification press meet: Rahul Gandhi trains guns on PM Modi

In his first post-disqualification press meet: Rahul Gandhi trains guns on PM Modi

March 25, 2023

New Delhi: A day after his disqualification as MP, Rahul Gandhi, the former Congress President, launched a blistering attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, raising questions on his (PM) relationship with industrialist Gautam Adani, in whose shell companies Rs. 20,000 crore has been allegedly invested, with no details of investors.

Rahul Gandhi, who addressed media at AICC Headquarters here this afternoon, with his sister Priyanka Gandhi seated in the front row, said that he (Rahul) stands disqualified as the Prime Minister was afraid of his next speech in the Parliament.

“I will not stop asking questions and will keep questioning the relationship between PM Modi and Adani,” added Rahul, claiming to be unnerved over his disqualification, that has rather emboldened Opposition parties by giving them weapons to fight Modi. In a half-hour-long media conference, the first after he (Rahul) was disqualified by LS Secretariat yesterday, after a Surat Court in Gujarat (on Mar. 23) convicted him for a 2019 Modi surname defamation case, with imprisonment for two years but was granted bail subsequently, the former Wayanad MP came down heavily on PM.

Taking a barrage of media queries, Rahul reiterated “Democracy is being attacked in the country, as is evident with recent developments. I raised questions in the Parliament regarding the relationship between PM Modi and Adani. My speech in the Parliament was expunged, and after that I wrote a detailed reply to the Lok Sabha Speaker. I will not stop asking questions, I will keep questioning the relationship between PM Modi and Adani.” “When the ruling party enjoys the support of all institutions, the Opposition parties can only look at the public for support. Seeking truth is my way forward. This is not fashionable in politics and it (seeking truth) is in my blood,” retorted Rahul, saying Modi went into a panic mode and hence the disqualification.

    He should have referred to the BBC Programme, which reveals the tru colour of Modi.

  2. Rahul says:

    I completely agree with Raga that democracy has died in India. Narendra Modi must learn the value of democracy from Gandhi family.
    Narendra Modi Ji needs to learn democracy from great grandfather of Rahul Gandhi, who became first PM of India inspite of losing to Sardar Patel in voting. Chacha won just 1 vote while Patel Ji won 14 votes. Great show of democracy.
    If Narendra Modi doesn’t have guts to learn from what happened 75 years ago, he can go around 40 years back and take lessons of democracy from grandmother of Rahul Gandhi. She had announced Emergency as a great display of democracy. She had arrested all politicians, many government servants and many media persons because of no fault of theirs.
    Narendra Modi Ji can take a lesson from Indira Gandhi’s another act. She banned legend Kishor Da from singing on TV & Radio because he refused to advertise for her. Great lesson it can be for Modi.
    If Modi doesn’t want lessons from her, he can take lessons of democracy from Rahul’s Father, Shree Rajiv Gandhi Ji. He had turned Supreme Court’s decision to ensure that a poor Muslim lady doesn’t get maintenance from her ex husband.
    Modi can even learn from Sri. Rajiv Gandhi or Sri Sanjay Gandhi who banned movie made on “Population Control Bill” because he did not like that movie personally.
    If Modi doesn’t want to go back to 20th century, he can take lessons of democracy from 21st century from Rahul’s mother. Modi can watch those videos wherein Rahul’s mother sat on official chairs with foreign delegates while the PM of the country took the chairs kept on side for guests.
    If Modi needs lessons of democracy from another ex PM, he can recall what happened with one of the greatest PMs of the country, Sri Narshima Rao. His dead body was refused to enter Congress Office in Delhi. It was sent to Hyderabad against the wishes of Rao’s family. Rao’s funeral was reportedly shown on TV as dogs pulled up bones from his half burned body at night after funeral.
    If Modi wants lessons of democracy from a youth, he can take them from Rahul’s sister Priyanka didi who was announced as the state president of Congress for the biggest state of India. She had absolutely no political experience but took the highest position for Congress in UP.
    Most importantly Modi can take lessons from Rahul Gandhi, who torn the ordinance signed by Prime Minister of India, passed by President of India in parliament. He threw those papers on the floor of the parliament. That’s called democracy.
    I can list down many more such incidents from which Modi can take lessons of democracy but Modi is a coward, he doesn’t respect democracy the way Congress does it.
    Still worse, Modi stopped 2 young potential future PMs who inherited Prime Minister genes by using his popularity with billions of stupid voters who can’t read English even. That is not how democracy should work.Modi deserves to be imprisoned for life. He is a maniac. He never made even his family members rich. What a wasted life!!

    Contrary to all the loud noises that Congress is making that BJP is trying to disqualify Rahul and eliminate him from contesting the next elections the reality is very surprising. Bjp wants Rahul to lead the United opposition team. BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, recently claimed that Rahul Gandhi has 4 passports, one in the name of Raul Vinci and has a chapel at home, during the event. This is illegal and cost him his citizenship as well as a huge monitory loss and send him to prison. But BJP doesn’t want to take any action as Rahul is Bjp’s trump card. PM Modi dis not expect that some unknown Modi destroyed their strategy. This rule was introduced during emergency by Indira Gandhi and used it against Subramanian swamy. Now Subramanian swamy is filing a law suit challenging his citizenship. Totally it is a case of
    nursery rhyme
    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
    All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
    couldn’t put Humpty together again.
