While India’s Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi claims that he is against corruption, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi dropped a bombshell today by saying he has information on personal corruption of Modi. Rahul Gandhi also alleged that he is not being allowed to reveal the information in Parliament.
“Since Prime Minister Modi decided to plunge the country’s economy into disarray, he has been remarkably silent in Parliament. The government has been running scared of a debate in the Lok Sabha with voting? Why is that?” Rahul Gandhi was referring to Modi’s demonetization scheme announced last month.
He further said when the government wants to pass an amendment without discussions, like they did with the amendments to the IT Act, through which they brought the 50-50 amnesty scheme for black money hoarders, they ensure there is a vote.
“But, on the issue of demonetization, which has claimed the lives of more than 100 people and rendered crores of workers jobless and hungry, they are reluctant for a vote. What are they scared of?” he asked.
हमारे पास प्रधानमंत्री के personal corruption की information है। इसलिए हमें बोलने नहीं दिया जा रहा है

Rahul Gandhi, who is Congress Vice President, said he has constantly been denied his right to speak in Parliament. “I have information on the Prime Minister that will burst his bubble. I have personal information about the PM. And he is terrified of it. It’s about PM’s personal corruption,” Rahul Gandhi said.
He further said that India is a democracy and Modi owes the country an explanation. “He can’t keep running away to pop concerts…For almost a month, the opposition has been wanting a debate in the Lok Sabha, but the Modi government and the PM don’t want it. The PM cannot keep running away from a discussion in the Lok Sabha,” Rahul Gandhi said.
In the Parliament, Modi can be directly confronted, and his bluff can be called out and debunked. There he can be questioned and held accountable. And that is why Modi and the BJP are scared of letting the opposition speak in the House, Rahul Gandhi said.
