Rahul had attacked the government at an election rally in Jharkhand. His remarks has reverberations in parliament today as the ruling BJP, including top ministers like Smriti Irani, severely criticized the Congress leader for such remark.
The Lok Sabha adjourned repeatedly amid unrelenting protests and cries of “shame” from the government benches.
The BJP MPs raised slogans against Rahul as Irani continued her attacks on the Congress MP.”Not all men are rapists. This is an insult to India… Rahul Gandhi is touching 50, and doesn’t realise that such a statement seems like an invitation to rape in India,” she added.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said: “People who make such remarks have no moral right to be member of this house”.
