BJP questions Rahul’s ‘foolish’ comment
Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi for calling demonetisation “foolish”, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Friday accused Congress of committing contempt against the people and democracy of the country and asked it to allow the functioning of the Parliament if it was “wise”.
In a stinging attack on Congress over the Parliament logjam, Naidu asked, “Is it foolish to take action against black money and corruption which was encouraged by Congress and its friends all these years in power?”
Seeking to turn the tables on Gandhi, Naidu, at a press conference here, referred to the “inaction” (during the UPA regime) on alleged scams relating to allocation of 2G, 3G and coal and CWG, and said, “So, keeping silent or helping those (guilty) people, and not taking action was a wise thing?”
“You have 2G, 3G...Augusta, CWG and coal scams...and all of these happened under whose regime?”, Naidu said.
