BJP members demanding an apology from Rahul Gandhi for remarks he made in London.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with his top ministers in Parliament on Thursday. Union Coal Minister Pralhad Joshi, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Law and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju, and Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur were among those present.
Today is the fourth day of the second leg of Parliament’s Budget session. On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the third day in a row, with the Congress and other opposition parties insisting on a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the Adani-Hindenburg row, and BJP members demanding an apology from Rahul Gandhi for remarks he made in London.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, while addressing a lecture at Cambridge University in London recently, said, “Everybody knows and it’s been in the news a lot that Indian democracy is under pressure and under attack. I am an Opposition leader in India, we are navigating that (Opposition) space.”
“The institutional framework which is required for a democratic Parliament, free press, the judiciary, just the idea of mobilization, moving around all are getting constrained. So, we are facing an attack on the basic structure of Indian democracy,” he had added.
