New Delhi-Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Senior Leader and Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha slammed the BJP on Wednesday. He said that the BJP doesn’t want the parliament to function but the INDIA does therefore, we are bringing a no-confidence motion in the parliament.
Through his twitter Raghav Chadha wrote, “Manipur is burning, and there are growing concerns that the instability could potentially spread to other states in the Northeast region. In response to the situation, INDIA is bringing a no-confidence motion against the ruling BJP-led central government in the Lok Sabha today.”
He expressed his concerns about the current state of affairs in Manipur and the Northeast region. He stated that the ruling BJP seems to be obstructing the functioning of Parliament and evading accountability, which led them to bring a no-confidence motion against the BJP-led central government in the Lok Sabha.
He clarified that although INDIA alliance lacks numbers in the Lok Sabha, their objectives are to hold the government accountable and initiate a discussion on the situation in Manipur. He believes that a no-confidence motion will force the Prime Minister to address the issues raised and highlight the urgency of the situation.
Regarding the suspension of fellow AAP MP Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha asserted that they will not be intimidated and will continue their protest in the parliament premises. He accused the BJP of trying to stifle opposition and undermine democracy due to the growing popularity of Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party.
Discussing the controversial Delhi ordinance, he criticised the BJP for attacking the mandate of the people of Delhi and India’s judiciary. He argued that the ordinance was a response to BJP’s inability to win in Delhi despite several attempts. He humorously suggested that instead of such ordinances, the BJP needs a doctor to treat their political “indigestion.”
On Vijay Diwas, the AAP MP paid tribute to the martyrs of the Kargil war and acknowledged the sacrifices of the Indian Army. He highlighted the plight of a Kargil subedar’s wife who faced brutality in Manipur, urging the Prime Minister and the BJP-led government to address the pressing issues in the region.
