‘Truth can be expunged in Modi’s world’: Rahul Gandhi on parts of his Lok Sabha speech getting deleted – N.F Times


New Delhi: Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed that what he had said in the Lok Sabha was true. Rahul Gandhi’s reaction comes a day after several portions of his speech on minorities, NEET row, and the Agnipath scheme were expunged from the records of Parliament on the orders of the Speaker.

“In Modi ji’s world, truth can be expunged. But in reality, the truth can’t be expunged. I said what I had to say, that is the truth. They can expunge as much as they want. Truth is truth,” Rahul Gandhi told reporters before entering the Lok Sabha during the ongoing Parliament session.

The portions expunged include his comments on Hindus, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP, and the RSS.

Reacting to the Parliament’s move to expunge Rahul Gandhi’s remarks from the Lok Sabha records, Congress leader Manickam Tagore said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not like the truth. “When the Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhiji speaks the truth about RSS, Adani, Ambani, and Agniveer, Modi doesn’t like it. The truth about these issues has been expunged. Modi and Shah can’t tolerate the truth. Since when did RSS, Adani, Ambani, and Agniveer become unparliamentary,” he asked in a post on X.

Congress ally Shiv Sena (Uddhav Thackeray faction) leader Sanjay Raut defended Rahul Gandhi saying the Leader of Opposition did not say anything against the Hindu community. “Rahul Gandhi has not said anything wrong about Hindus… He said that Modiji is not Hindutva and BJP is not the entire Hindu community.” “Even in Maharashtra, their [BJP’s] narrative is that Shiv Sena broke alliance with Hindutva when we severed our relation with the BJP. BJP is not Hindutva. Hindutva’s definition is much broader than the BJP.”
