NEW DELHI: Two days before the winter session of Parliament begins, the BJP has upped the ante against the Congress, seeking ‘public apology’ from the party’s former president Rahul Gandhi “for lying to defame Prime Minister Narendra Modi”. The BJP announced that it will hold protests across the country against the Congress’ lies.
Latching on to the Supreme Court’s statement cautioning Gandhi to be careful with his comments, the BJP held a protest at the Congress headquarters here. “The BJP will be holding demonstrations in each district of the country on Saturday against the Congress. There’s a scope for ideological battle in democracy. But the people need to come forth when the Congress and its (former) chief indulge in the politics of lies. The Congress spearheaded the campaign against Rafale based on lies,” said BJP national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav.
Gandhi had apologised to the top court for mis-attributing to it his ‘chowkidar chor hai’ comment against the PM in connection with the Rafale case. “It’s a first in the country that a top leader of a political party had to submit the affidavit to apologise in the SC,” added Yadav.
