PM Neither Dictatorial Nor Communal: Rajnath Slams Rahul
Trashing Rahul Gandhi's criticism that only one voice counts in the country, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "neither dictatorial, nor communal".
"The entire country knows that the Prime Minister is neither dictatorial, nor communal. If he had been dictatorial or communal, then I think people of such a huge country would not have given such a mandate that for the first time in the history of independent India, a non Congress political party has a clear mandate in Parliament," Singh told reporters outside Parliament.
He was also asked a question related to Gandhi's charge of "partiality" in the Lok Sabha and discussion not being allowed.
"This is a matter related to the House, and I think if any congnisance has to be taken, the Speaker will do it," Singh said.
The Congress vice president had earlier in the day stormed the Well in the Lok Sabha, demanding a debate on communal tension, accusing the Modi government of not allowing discussion in Parliament where he said only one man's voice is heard.
"We are not being allowed to speak in Parliament. We are asking for discussion. There is a mentality in the government that discussion is not acceptable. Everybody feels it, their party feels it, we feel it, everybody feels it," he said.
