‘Didn’t say anything anti-India’, says Rahul amid Parliament row

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi arrived in Parliament amid the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanding his apology over remarks made in the United Kingdom.

“I didn’t speak anything anti-India (in the London seminar). If they will allow it, I will speak inside the parliament”, the Wayanad MP said.

Parliament has been witnessing a massive stand-off between the government and opposition over Gandhi. The Congress and other opposition parties are demanding a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into the Adani-Hindenburg issue. The BJP has demanded that Rahul Gandhi apologize to Parliament for insulting India on the foreign soil.

“What Rahul Gandhi says is the same language used by those who are anti-India both in the country and outside,” Union law minister Kiren Rijiju said, reiterating the BJP’s demand for an apology by the Congress leader.

During an interaction in the UK, Gandhi said democracy in India is under attack and the opposition leaders are silenced. His remarks triggered a massive outcry in India with the BJP leaders accusing him of insulting Parliament.
