New Delhi, July 20: Even as Congress chief Rahul Gandhi made a case for the no-confidence motion against the NDA Government in Parliament on Friday, the BJP was far from impressed. The saffron party would be moving a privilege motion against the Congress President for his “false allegations”. “BJP MPs will move a privilege motion against Rahul Gandhi for putting forth falsehood and misleading the Parliament,” confirmed Union Minister Ananth Kumar.

He went on to add, “His behaviour was childish. He has grown old but it is unfortunate that he has not grown up. It is unfortunate that the president of Congress is so ill-informed and immature.” Fellow BJP leader Kirron Kher didn’t hold back in her criticism of Gandhi either. She said, “Rahul Gandhi should be ashamed, he can’t target our ministers without any proof. He was doing drama in the House and hugging Modi ji. I think his next step will be Bollywood. We will have to send him there.” Also Read - Full lockdown Is The Only Way to Stop Corona Now, Govt Doesn't Get It: Rahul Gandhi
Meanwhile, the Congress was cheering for its leader. MP Rajiv Satav said, “Rahul Gandhi had once said the day he will speak in the Parliament, an earthquake will come and today it has definitely come.” Party spokesperson RS Surjewala said, “Nischhal prem ki jadoo ki ek jhappi nafrat ki aandhi ko kaise rok sakti hai yeh Rahul Gandhi ji ne dikhaya…Akhir Rahul ji ne Congress ke mohabbat ka aina Modi ji ko dikha hi diya (Rahul showed to the world how a loving hug can stop the winds of hatred. He showed the loving face of the Congress to Modi ji).” Also Read - BJP to Hold Nationwide Dharna on May 5 Against Widespread Violence Post Bengal Election Results
The Congress President, in his speech, attacked the Modi government on a slew of issues, including the rising mass lynchings, slow economic growth and safety of women. Calling the government a “jumla sarkar”, he said, “The symptoms of the jumla strike include – First there is a great sense of excitement and happiness. After that there is shock and then followed by regret.” A privilege motion is a motion that is granted precedence over the ordinary business of the House because it concerns matters of great importance. Such motions are not debatable.
