Mumbai: Focusing on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his nonattendance in parliament, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has said Prime Minister Narendra Modi talks more in foreign parliament than in our own parliament.
This came during the book launch event where Tharoor thought about the functioning style of India’s most memorable Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and PM Modi.
Contrasting the philosophy of both the Prime Ministers with respect to a majority rule government, popularity-based foundations and opportunity of articulation, Congress MP said, “Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a greater number of talks in the foreign Parliament than in the Indian Parliament which is something contrary to Nehru.”
Reviewing the India-China battle in 1962, Congress MP said that then PM Jawaharlal Nehru called a Parliament meeting and examined the issues, today it is even not permitted to bring up an issue connected with line issues between India and China.
“In 1962, when India was at battle with China, then, at that point, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru called a Parliament meeting and examined it. Yet, today, we are not permitted to bring up issues about what’s going on in China, particularly in the Galwan Valley,” Tharoor said.
He further said there is no discussion in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha regarding the India and China issues, despite the death of twenty Indian soldiers who lost their lives.
