Both the Houses of Parliament witnessed ruckus over the alleged objectionable remarks of Congress President and Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge on BJP’s contribution in the freedom struggle. Mr. Kharge while addressing a party function in Alwar Rajasthan had made comments against the BJP. When the Rajya Sabha met this morning, BJP members started sloganeering against Mr. Kharge. Leader of the House Piyush Goyal condemned his remarks saying that he should tender an apology to the BJP and the nation. He said, the conduct, behaviour and language used by Mr. Kharge was not appropriate.
He alleged that it was the Congress Party due to which the situation in Jammu and Kashmir deteriorated and China did incursion in the Indian land. He also accused the party of disrespecting Dr. BR Ambedkar. Responding to it, Mr. Kharge said, whatever he had uttered was outside the House and it should not be raked up inside the House. He alleged that BJP had no role in the freedom struggle. Mr. Kharge said, it is the Congress whose two Prime Ministers sacrificed their lives for the nation. The House witnessed heated arguments and sloganeering and counter-sloganeering between the treasury and opposition benches’ members.
