Gogoi says Modi silent on China, Manipur, Delhi Riots & More
New Delhi, August 09: Two-term Member of Indian Parliament and Leader of Lok Sabha for the Congress Party, Gaurav Gogoi, launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his â€œsilenceâ€ over the â€œDelhi riots, Manipur violence, Covid19 deaths and Chinaâ€ and several other issues such as his â€œrelationship with business tycoon Adaniâ€ etc.
Speaking in the Indian parliament, Gogoi accused Modi of maintaining silence over important matters and that his party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would make any compromise on â€œnational securityâ€ to garner votes and hanker after power.
In a fiery speech delivered on the floor of the parliament, Gogoi accused the BJP of garnering support from a proscribed â€œterrorist organisation in Manipurâ€ to win elections in the northeastern state.
â€œThis is their nationalism and patriotism that they are sacrificing national interest for vote bank politics,â€ Gogoi said amid thunderous applause from the benches.
Accusing Modi of taking a â€œvow of silenceâ€ on sensitive issues like violence in Manipur and Chinese incursions in the Ladakh region, the Congress leader on August 8 said that the opposition had no option than to bring the no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha to make the PM speak on all important matters inside the parliament.
