Rahul Gandhi Responds to Accusations of Making “Anti-India” Remarks in London

Rahul Gandhi clarified his statement made in London

At a meeting of the Parliamentary Advisory Committee chaired by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) S Jaishankar in the national capital, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi clarified his statement made in London. In the meeting, BJP MPs mentioned Gandhi’s name, to which he responded immediately, claiming he had not said anything against India. There was some disagreement between the BJP leaders and Gandhi during the meeting.

During the meeting, Jaishankar delivered an extensive presentation to the committee members regarding India’s presidency of the G20. However, a BJP MP brought up the matter of politicians discussing Indian democracy while overseas in order to gain political mileage. Rahul Gandhi, who was present with opposition members, interjected and stated that he knew that the comment was directed at him, but he clarified that he had not said anything of the sort.

Rahul Gandhi asserted that he had criticized an individual, not the government, and the Congress party was in support of India’s interests. He added that he had not spoken of any country being interfered with.

Gandhi’s statement that India’s democracy was under threat and that opposition leaders were being silenced sparked considerable controversy in the country. BJP officials denounced his words as an affront to the legislature. The conversation in London, which led to this outcry, caused a great stir in India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated that some individuals are affronted by India’s democracy and its systems, and that is why they are attempting to damage it. It appears that this statement was a dig at Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader, for his criticism concerning the state of democracy in the country.

Anurag Thakur previously criticized Gandhi, insisting that India’s democratic infrastructure is firmly rooted and will remain so despite opinions to the contrary, both within the country and abroad.

The Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting asserted that in keeping with the adage that “Facts are scared, an opinion is free”, the democratic structure of India will remain unchanged. He noted that no matter how far-fetched or implausible some of the perspectives that are expressed, both internationally and domestically, India’s democracy will remain resilient.
