Congress today took a veiled dig at Subramanian Swamy describing the controversial BJP MP as “nuclear fissile material” brought in Parliament by the ruling party which was bound to “implode” it.

“They have brought nuclear fissile material in Parliament and has kept it there. It will implode them. (Finance Minister Arun) Jaitley is feeling being imploded”, party spokesman Kapil Sibal told reporters without taking the name of Swamy.

Apparently referring to Swamy’s attacks on Jaitley, RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and Finance Ministry officials, he said that such a thing had never happened during the UPA rule.

“What is the use of the Prime Minister now disapproving Swamy’s attacks when RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan has already said no to a second term”, he said replying to a question on Prime Minister’s response to the issue in an interview.

He also suggested that the Prime Minister, who has completed two years in office, should address a press conference, instead of giving an interview to a news channel.

“Modiji, have a press conference. Let our journalists ask you questions. This is better than an interview with one person”, he remarked.

He also attacked the Prime Minister and the BJP for targeting Congress over the Emergency imposed 41 years back when Indira Gandhi was at the helm. “How do you have an anniversary on Emergency & how do you do a ‘Mann ki Baat’ on Emergency”, he wondered.

Alleging that there was a “silent emergency” in place since the Modi government took over, he claimed that even BJP veteran L K Advani had spoken of the danger.

Advani, he recalled, had remarked sometime back that “at the present point of time the forces that can crush democracy, notwithstanding the provisions of the Constitution and legal safeguards, are stronger.”

Insisting that the issue of Emergency was being raised by the ruling party for “petty politics”, he said the Emergency of 1975 can never happen today because of amendments in the Constitution.

Taking a dig at the government, he reminded it that there are “many emergencies in India to be dealt with like farmers emergency, drought emergency & unemployment emergencies. Deal with them.”
