NEW DELHI: Union Minister for Human Resource Development Smriti Irani on Friday slammed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his comment that "National Herald case is vendetta coming out of the prime minister's office", calling it an insult to democracy.

"There can't be a bigger insult to our democracy. Judiciary and democracy don't function at someone's comfort," Irani said addressing a session at 'Agenda Aaj Tak' being organised here in the city.

The statements being made by Gandhi show that if the "Judiciary doesn't kneel before the Gandhi family, parliament won't be allowed to function".
