The Prime Minister made a false statement in the House, lying has become his habit: Kharge

The Uncut

New Delhi. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi made false statements while responding to the discussion on the motion of thanks brought on the President’s address in the Rajya Sabha, due to which the opposition had to walk out of the House. Talking to reporters in the Parliament House complex, he also claimed that lying and misleading people has become a habit of Prime Minister Modi.

When Kharge addressed the reporters, he was accompanied by Congress Parliamentary Party chief Sonia Gandhi and leaders of several constituent parties of the ‘India’ alliance. The Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha alleged, “We all walked out because the Prime Minister, while responding to the discussion on the President’s address, said some wrong things in the House. Lying and misleading people is his habit.” He said, “I just wanted to say that you did not make the Constitution, you people were against the Constitution. I wanted to put this thing in front of him in the House.”

He claimed, “In an editorial in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) mouthpiece ‘Organiser’ on November 30, 1950, it was written that the worst thing in this new Constitution of India is that there is nothing Indian in it.” Kharge also claimed that the Jana Sangh and its affiliated organizations had opposed the Constitution and burnt the effigies of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar.

He said, “The Prime Minister is calling us anti-Constitution whereas these people are natural opponents of the Constitution.” Deputy Leader of Congress in Rajya Sabha Pramod Tiwari said, “The Leader of Opposition tried to put facts in the House but he was not allowed to speak… The entire opposition walked out because lies were being told in the House.”
