Those who desire to be Prime Minister never blend ignorance, falsehood: Arun Jaitley

Arun Jaitley

New Delhi | Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday while taking a dig on Congress President  Rahul Gandhi said that if a participant happens to be a President of a national political party nourishing Prime Ministerial aspirations, every word he speaks should be precious.

Arun Jaitley on a Facebook post wrote, “A Vote of No Confidence against the Government is a serious business. It is not an occasion for frivolity”.” The lead participants in the debate are normally senior political leaders. They are expected to raise the level of political discourse,” he added.

Responding to Rahul Gandhi’s speech in Lok Sabha during the No-confidence motion, Jaitley wrote, “The President of the Congress Party missed a great opportunity. If this was his best argument for 2019, God help his party”. He further added that Gandhi’s lack of understanding is not only confined to basic issues but also to the niceties of protocol.

“One should never misquote a conversation with a Head of Government or a Head of State. You do it once, serious people will be reluctant to speak to you or speak in your presence,” Arun Jaitley wrote while commenting on the allegations made by Congress President about the Indo-France Rafale deal. He further stated that “Rahul Gandhi, by concocting a conversation with President Macron, has lowered his own credibility and seriously hurt the image of an Indian politician before the world at large”.

Attacking opposition’s claim about the failure of GST, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley wrote, “Is he (Rahul Gandhi) unaware of the fact that the UPA proposed GST amendment to the Constitution never included petroleum products as part of the GST?” He clarified that “It is only the NDA which brought it within the GST with tax to be levied once agreed by the GST Council”.

Taking a jibe at Congress president’s statement where he equated declaration of accounts as NPA as a loan waiver, Jaitley wrote, “There is no Minister who either desires to change or is constitutionally entitled to change the Constitution of India.” He alleged that” The last Indian politician who wanted the power to change the Constitution was Rahul’s grandmother and she too failed”.
