Hyderabad: Reiterating that the Narendra Modi government has nothing to do with the National Herald case, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday said the Congress party was inventing reasons to disrupt parliament.

He told reporters here that it has become a habit of the Congress to stall parliament on some issue or the other.

“They don’t know what they are doing and for what they are striking. They are inventing reasons for disrupting parliament,” he said.

Claiming that the country is making progress under Modi’s leadership, Naidu said the opposition party was unable to digest this and hence was stalling key bills in parliament.

Naidu advised the Congress not to bring court matters on the roads. He said the political parties should guide people and provide leadership but taking out processions over court summons and burning effigies of the Prime Minister amounts to insulting courts. He described it an indirect pressure on the judiciary.

He also wondered how the bail granted on Saturday by a Delhi court to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case could be celebrated as a victory.

The central minister said Modi had nothing to do with the case as it was filed in 2012 when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister.

Naidu recalled that when Modi as Chief Minister of Gujarat received a summon by Special Investigation Team, he appeared before SIT without any procession and disruption in either parliament or in Gujarat assembly.

“The Congress party says that the government is targeting opponents, but people know who targeted opponents, murdered democracy, sent lakhs of people to jails and muzzled the voice of press,” he said, adding that Congress has no right to criticize the government.

Naidu also flayed the Aam Admi Party (AAP) for making baseless allegations against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to divert people’s attention from the charges they are facing.

“Arun Jaitley is the most popular, dynamic, honest and capable minister with most impeccable character,” he said.(IANS)

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday attacked the policies of the central government and said that unity in diversity is our strength, and the strength of the country will increase by uniting all.

He said “making brothers fight against each other cannot benefit the country.”

Rahul Gandhi was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the three-day National Tribal Dance Festival here in the Chhattisgarh on Friday.

He said: “Without taking everyone together, every religion, every caste, tribal, Dalit, or backward, the country’s economy cannot run. Until all the people of this country are united, until everyone’s voice is heard in the Assembly and in the Lok Sabha, nothing can be done about unemployment or about the economy.”

Rahul raised questions about the current economic situation and the relief given to a select few: “The economy is run by the peasants, labourers, the poor and the tribals. If all the money is given to 10-15 people, demonetisation is done, wrong GST is implemented, then employment cannot be created in India, economy cannot run.”

Appreciating the initiatives taken by the Chhattisgarh government, Rahul Gandhi said: “Here farmers, youth, tribals, women are being heard and are taking the state forward.”

“Together, everyone is taking this state forward. It makes a difference, violence has reduced here, the economy here is overtaking other states. This difference is visible, because nothing can be made by disintegrating, the country cannot benefit by making brothers fight each other.”
