With Parliament rocked by constant disruptions, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hit out at the Congress, accusing it of making a “mockery of democracy” and deciding to “destroy” the country as it cannot reconcile to the Lok Sabha poll defeat.
“Disrupt, Destruct and Demolish” is now the Congress slogan ignoring President Pranab Mukherjee’s counsel for debate, dissent and decision for Parliament to function, he said in his blistering attack on the Congress, a fortnight after he reached out to to the main opposition party in a bid to sort out differences over the GST bill.
“Those whom people had defeated in the last Lok Sabha elections, sent them home. they are ruined. They all have now decided ‘Now that we are destroyed, we will destroy you also.
We won’t allow the Parliament to run. Whatever happens to the country be it. You have destroyed us, Now see what we’ll do.’ They have made mockery of democracy,” Modi said in an obvious reference to Congress’s tactics, especially in the Rajya Sabha, without naming the main opposition party.
Modi, who is on the second day of his visit to Kerala, was addressing a gathering of SNDP workers after unveiling the statue of former chief minister R Sankar who hailed from the backward ezhava community and belonged to the Congress.
