The Parliamentary Committee on Defense Affairs met on Wednesday. Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, walked out of the meeting. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar had targeted Rahul in this regard.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday wrote a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. He alleged that he was not given a chance to speak at the parliamentary committee meeting. Rahul Birla appealed to take the matter seriously so as to protect the right of elected MPs to speak openly in meetings.
After this, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar reacted and asked Rahul to respect the constitutional institutions. He said, ‘How much respect do they have for constitutional institutions? He got out of the committee meeting and walked out. The Standing Committee does not allow opposition to the speech. They must learn to respect constitutional institutions. If not, their role in democracy will be called into question.
14 sessions in two half years, Rahul absent from 12
He said, “Rahul Gandhi may not be aware that sessions are also held to decide the agenda of the meeting, but he does not exist in these sessions. In the last two and a half years, 14 sessions were called. Of these, Rahul attended only 2.
“First Rahul does not attend the convention, then he questions the BJP government and the process,” he said.
