PM Modi accused the Congress of deliberately spurning attempts at resolving an impasse that has seen hardly any work in this session of parliament.
Accusing the grand old party of not allowing the monsoon session of parliament to function, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday attacked the Congress, and asked BJP MPs to “expose the party before the public and the media”. The monsoon session of parliament, since it began, has been marked by protests from the opposition and demands for discussions on the Pegasus phone-hacking row, the farm laws and other issues.
The Prime Minister, addressing a meeting of the BJP’s parliamentary party, accused the Congress of deliberately spurning attempts at resolving an impasse that has seen hardly any work in this session of parliament.
Refering to the Congress’ boycott of last week’s all-party meeting to review the COVID-19 situation in the country, PM Modi said the party had also prevented others from attending.
The Prime Minister, who rose to introduce his new cabinet ministers on July 19, also faced slogan-shouting from opposition leaders, forcing him to cut short his speech. PM Modi asked his party MPs to “expose this behaviour of the Congress and some opposition parties in front of the media and the public”.
In the last one week, PM Modi has targeted the Congress party couple of times. During a smaller meeting of BJP MPs earlier, PM Modi called its actions “irresponsible and unfortunate”.
