New Delhi, March 30 (KMS): The comment of the German foreign ministry on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha has triggered a war of words between BJP and Congress leaders.
On Wednesday, Germany had said that the “standards of judicial independence and fundamental democratic principles” should apply in the case of Rahul Gandhi after his disqualification as a Member of Parliament (MP) following his conviction in a defamation case.
Congress leader Digvijaya Singh in a tweet thanked the German Foreign Affairs Ministry for “taking note of how democracy is being compromised through persecution of Rahul Gandhi”.
In response, BJP leader and Indian Law Minister Kiren Rijiju took to Twitter to accuse Rahul Gandhi of inviting “foreign powers” to interfere in India’s internal matters.
“Thank you Rahul Gandhi for inviting foreign powers for interference into India’s internal matters. Remember, Indian Judiciary can’t be influenced by foreign interference,” he said, adding that India won’t tolerate ‘foreign influence’ anymore because our Prime Minister is Nnarendra Modi.
Responding to Kiren Rijiju’s tweet, another Congress leader Pawan Khera, who heads the media and publicity department, tweeted “Mr. Rijiju, why divert from the main issue? The issue is that the Prime Minister cannot answer Rahul Gandhi’s questions about Adani. Instead of misleading people, please answer the questions?”
