New Delhi: BJP leader and former Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad attacked Congress Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi while addressing a press conference. Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi, the BJP leader said that Rahul was nervous in his press conference. Prasad said on Rahul's "death of democracy" remark that the Congress' "democracy" was a system of corruption. The BJP leader further said, "Rahul Gandhi is sad that corruption has ended. I ask, was there democracy in your party?'
The former Union minister said, "Rahul Gandhi does not come at the time of discussion in the House on inflation and unemployment. The discussion of inflation and unemployment is just an excuse, basically scaring the ED is threatening and saving your family. I want to ask Rahul Gandhi, is there democracy in your party? Only Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka are there in the Congress party. People don't vote for your party, so what should we do?'' Prasad further said, "Even after the Corona pandemic, India's economy is better than many economies of the world.''
Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "In 2019, your party did not say anything to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We can't even repeat it. Priyanka Gandhi did not get a seat in UP. Your democracy runs on corruption. Rahul Gandhi, you tell the country why you are on bail? What is the case of the National Herald? The whole case was filed before we arrived. He invested Rs 50 lakh and gave assets worth Rs 2000 crore to his controlling trust. Prasad said, "Rahul Gandhi could not dare to go alone in the press conference. The Congress party is in the pocket of a family (Gandhi family). The leadership of the party is also in the pocket of this family. You want the party property to go into your pocket.''
Prasad further said, "In the Corona epidemic when the whole country was one. The corona vaccine was made and the country- the world took the vaccine. You made fun of it too. You also made fun of startups. The dictatorship was only during the Congress regime. You tell me one thing. How does a property worth 5,000 crores come by creating a 5 lakh company? Property worth thousands of crores has been confiscated. Crores of rupees have been received in Kolkata. Rahulji, what you have done, you have to suffer.'' Earlier, Rahul Gandhi had launched a scathing attack on the central government on Friday over price rise, unemployment and the social situation and claimed that democracy was dying in India.
