In a sarcastic take on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s claim that there would be an earthquake if he speaks on “personal corruption” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi , NCP president Sharad Pawar on Saturday said the MPs were worried what would be their fate in case that happened. “Members of Parliament were scared and worried how they would get out of the Parliament building after the quake. But, since there was no earthquake, there is a feeling that we can sleep peacefully,” the veteran politician said when asked what he thought of Rahul Gandhi’s claim.
Referring to wash out of the winter session of Parliament, Pawar said he had never seen the ruling party stalling the proceedings in Parliament or Legislature in his 50 years of legislative career. The Congress vice-president had last week accused the government of not allowing him to speak in Parliament despite his speech being ready. He had said an “earthquake will come” if he gets the opportunity to speak. “For the last one month I want to speak in the Lok Sabha … want to speak what is in the heart of the poor across the country about demonetisation. If they allow me to speak in Parliament then you shall see that an earthquake will happen,” Rahul Gandhi had said talking to media outside Parliament.
