New Delhi, Aug 14:
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said the Congress was practicing disruptive politics because it was rattled to see the Narendra Modi government “doing so well”.
“Last budget session (of parliament) was very successful. Many important bills were passed during it and it was then Rahul Gandhi thought that bills were being passed and government was already doing well, so take up issues to disrupt the house,” Union minister and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters at a press conference here.
The union minister for communications and information technology also criticised the Congress for protesting in front of Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s house.
“We also had issues with previous speaker but we did not do so,” he said, asking Congress president Sonia Gandhi to respond as she herself is a woman and would know how improper it was to have semi-nude protesters here.
The minister also said there was no need for the BJP to take lessons from the Congress on democracy.
Targeting Sonia Gandhi, the BJP leader said it was for the first time that a chief of a political party came into the well of the house. “There have been many leaders, but they never came to the well of the house while protesting.”
He said it was not for the first time that the opposition MPs were suspended from the house, as it had happened during Congress’ rule as well.
“Congress’ attitude is undemocratic,” he said, adding that the Modi government would continue with its “good work.” (IANS)
