Mysuru: BJP MLC H. Vishwanath has said that the hasty disqualification of Rahul Gandhi’s MP seat was political machinations and double policy of the ruling Party. Vishwanath lashed out at the Government for the same.
Addressing a media conference in here on Saturday March 25 he said that the disqualification of Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi from his parliamentary seat mainly in the defamation case highlights the political machinations and double standards of the ruling party. Now the country is in a worse situation than the state of emergency and there is an atmosphere of fear in the country. Democracy is under threat, explained Vishwanath with examples.
“Others criticised Rahul but Rahul Gandhi, unfazed by this, went on to do a Bharat Jodo Yatra across the country and become popular as well as Bharat Jodo became a success. In the meantime, a defamation case was filed in Gujarat for what he had said somewhere, and he was sentenced to two years in the Gujarat Court itself. Rahul Gandhi case should not happen like this in republican politics,” he noted.
He criticised Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification and said that it was a part of political machinations. He said 54% of MPs in Parliament are accused. Why has no action been taken against them,? Every day MLA C. T. Ravi, Former Minister K. S. Eshwarappa, and MLA Basavana Gouda Patil Yatnal speak lightly on Opposition Party Leaders, he observed.
MLA Madal Virupakshappa got crores of money in his house, why ruling party leaders not talking about it ? Come out of this dual policy and take action against him, he objected to the BJP Government’s action in the State and the Centre.
