Rahul Gandhi in the press conference
Rahul Gandhi said that these all are just distractions (disqualification as MP) created from the BJP side,, and I won’t be distracted from all these. They (BJP) are scared of the following speech I was going to make regarding the Adani issue, and that’s why they (BJP) made this distraction of disqualifying me.
Question mentioning whether he was going to apologize as demanded by the members of the BJP, Rahul said that “I don’t have Savarkar surname; I am Gandhi,” and Gandhi didn’t apologize. If they want, they can disqualify me for life, and I will still ask the question regarding Adani and the Prime Minister’s relationship and why he is protecting him.
What’s BJP’s stance on the same?
The BJP has been demanding an apology from Rahul Gandhi’s side as they feel that his remarks were defamatory against the OBC community. BJP said that the Congress is just portraying Rahul Gandhi as a victim, whereas there are about 32 MPs who got disqualified, and six among them were from the Bhartiya Janta party.
