Parliament House: PM tried to break Constitution: Mallikarjun Kharge’s retort

1 min read

After the PM targeted Congress by raking up the anniversary of the imposition of Emergency by Indira Gandhi, Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge asked how long the PM wanted to rule by repeatedly talking about Emergency.

“He (Modi) will say this 100 times. How long do you want to rule by talking about this,” Kharge asked. He said without declaring an “emergency”, the PM was doing many questionable things. “Modiji tried to break the Constitution. That’s why leaders of all parties have come together today and are protesting. There was a Gandhi statue here (in front of Parliament House). They are breaking all democratic norms…,” Kharge said. He alleged that the PM’s customary speech ahead of the session skipped many important issues, including the NEET paper leak, caste census, the recent train accidents and the violence in Manipur.
