New Delhi: Accusing the Congress party of launching ‘fake campaigns’ against the defence forces, judiciary and Reserve Bank, Union Minister Arun Jaitley Sunday said it is time to protect the country as well as its institutions from ‘institution wreckers’. In a hard-hitting Facebook post, the minister recalled how the Congress-led governments used to interfere with institutions like the RBI, judiciary and the Central CBI.
Jaitley said in West Bengal, democracy is seriously under peril. “BJP leaders can’t land, public meetings are being prevented and the Rath Yatra was disallowed. The Congress Party’s stand on multiple issues is self-contradictory. It slaughters a cow before the cameras in Kerala, and invokes the National Security Act against the cow killers in Madhya Pradesh,” he said.
“The Congress aligned with the Maoist in the recent Chhattisgarh elections. Rahul Gandhi stood shoulder to shoulder with the ‘Tukde Tukde’ gang at the Jawaharlal Nehru University,” Jaitley said. He said these ‘institution protectors’ support the legitimising of illegal infiltrators into India. They readily jump to the support of those who want to dismember the country, he said.
Accusing Congress President Rahul Gandhi of stalling functioning of Parliament, Jaitley said his two speeches on Rafale are based on a personal hatred for the Prime Minister emanating from envy. “History will record that Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru’s great grandson has singularly damaged India’s Parliament as an institution more than anyone else,” he said.
The minister said the Congress attempts at 11.00 am every morning to disrupt both houses of Parliament. “If we analyse Rahul Gandhi’s two speeches on Rafale, they are based on a personal hatred for the Prime Minister emanating from envy. A failed student always hates the class topper. Additionally, the context of the speeches points more to college-level lumpenisation in content.
