Criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for demonetisation, on Monday leader of opposition Mallikarjun Kharge said that the 125 people died because of it and PM should apologise for it.
“Gandhi ji sacrificed his life for the country Indira ji too sacrificed her life. Who came from your house? Not a single dog came from your family,” he said in Lok Sabha
“You (PM) are good in speaking, you give good speeches, but you can’t fill stomach with good speeches.” he said.
“No need to take credit for surgical strikes, it is not only you who is with the Army, but the whole nation too is with them,” he added.
He also criticised the government for hushing up veteran MP E Ahamed’s death in a hospital ahead of the annual union budget’s presentation on February 1.
Congress MPs, led by their leader Rahul Gandhi demanded a Parliamentary probe into the death of IUML leader and Kerala MP.
“Ahamed was unnecessarily kept on life support when he had already expired. They wanted to hide this fact, they hushed up his death. That is why we are demanding a Parliamentary Committee to be formed to probe the matter,” Kharge said.
