The Congress President, Mallikarjun Kharge, addressed the Parliament on Wednesday. While addressing the House, Kharge took on the government and its ministers. He slammed the ministers and member of Parliaments for indulging in divisive politics.
The opposition has been calling for an investigation of the accusations made against the Adani group by the Hindenburg firm. The opposition parties have questioned the government on the actions it has taken and said that the collapse in Adani Group share prices is a "mega fraud" involving the money of regular people because public sector companies LIC and SBI invested in them.
Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar in exchange with LoP Mallikarjun Kharge who is demanding JPC on the Adani issue says, "it seems you will set up a JPC on me."
"Do our responsible ministers and MPs get any other subject besides Hindu-Muslim? SCs are beaten up upon entering the temple; if they're considered Hindu, why aren't SCs allowed in the temple or allowed to be educated? Many ministers show off pictures of them eating at the SC's home," said.
"If I speak the truth, is that anti-national? I'm not anti-national. I'm more patriotic than anyone here. I'm a 'bhoomi-putra'...You're looting the country and telling me that I'm anti-national," Mallikarjun further said in the House.
This is a breaking story, more details are awaited.
