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)

It is too disgusting that Shiv Sena is aiming for something which was nothing but an act of betrayal. Here the principles and ethos of the party are just sacrificed. The “chair” of Chief Minister is what the individual parties in Maharashtra are wanting so badly. And for this only Shiv Sena has severed its ties with its all-time ally BJP which emerged with the largest number of MLAs. Is it not the BJP with which Sena made the alliance before the election? Why so much bitter feelings after the poll result? Many past elections were fought on this mutual understanding. Sena had always taken pride and bragged about its power and clout as because the BJP was behind it. But now very contrary equation and chemistry are on display. NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena are sharing the ideas as opposed to the expectation of the whole electorate.

Democracy
Politics in India might lead to a sinking democracy.

One believes it’s Congress and its High common which Shiv Sena Supremo Late Bal Thackeray always disliked and ruthlessly held them up to ridicule. It was because they hold the opposing ideologies. But now his son Uddhav Thackeray kneeled down and sought the helping hand of those rival camps to walk the party through for the chair of Chief Minister. Going by the flood of comments on the social media, this party has ostensibly fallen from the grace. BJP is not a holy cow either. It is equally good at flexes its muscles for the power.

While Maharashtra is already under the president rule, the NCP and Congress now exploring all possible means to back Shiv Sena.   Uddhav Thackeray only wants to see his son Aditya Thackeray being the Chief Minister of one of the riches states in the country. The trend is not at all healthy. Here everything is utterly clear that the cherished values of democracy in India are fast eroding. Majority of the states in the country, only the “particularly families” are  always standing up to rule the roost. This is a bigger threat to the fundamental values of the country.The NATION is no more controlled by the government of the people, nor is it for the people. It is the government of the particular families which is formed for the fulfillment of the low greed and narrow aspiration of those particular families. Lastly, it is the common people who are always at the receiving end of the leaders’ whims and tantrums. Phew, the country is not at all in the safe hands.
