The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Minister of State, Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Jitendra Singh responded idiomatically to Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that demonetisation is the ‘biggest scam’. Singh said it is a perfect example of a ‘pot calling the kettle black’. This proverbial idiom is used for a person who is guilty of the very thing of which they accuse another and is thus an example of Psychological projection.

Gandhi on Friday accused the government of not allowing him to speak in Parliament and said that an ‘earthquake will come’ if he gets the opportunity to speak and ‘the Prime Minister will not be able to even sit there’ . On this comment by Gandhi, BJP politician Singh was quoted by Business Standards as saying that it is the Opposition which is disrupting both houses of parliament and not allowing them to function. “People of the country will not forgive those who have allowed an entire session of parliament to go waste,” he added.

Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and fellow minister Smriti Irani took a swipe at Gandhi today too. “May this quake happen when we are not present in Parliament,” Naidu told reporters in Bengaluru. Smriti Irani also reacted on Gandhi’s comment, she said, “Rahulji thinks too highly about his oratory skills and he himself knows how much his speeches appeal…. As far as tremors are concerned. I think when he speaks there are tremors within Congress, not outside.”
