Home/ News / India/  ‘Why so afraid, Mr Prime Minister?’ Rahul Gandhi attacks PM Modi on Adani again

In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi asked the veteran Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader what he was so afraid of. In his latest tweet, Gandhi has targeted PM Modi again on the latter’s alleged connection with billionaire businessman Gautam Adani.

“LIC's capital, to Adani! SBI's capital, to Adani! EPFO's capital too, to Adani! Why is the public's retirement money being invested in Adani's companies even after 'Modani' is exposed? No investigation, no answer! Why so afraid, Mr Prime Minister?" says a translated version of Rahul Gandhi’s latest post on Twitter.

In a reply to Gandhi’s tweet, Telangana Youth Congress tweeted, “First, the Parliament asked Why is the PM desperately trying to save Adani, so it was put on mute! But now the whole nation is asking, why the PM of India trying to save Adani so desperately! Parliament can be muted but not the voice of the nation! (sic)"

Gandhi was stripped of his parliamentary seat on March 24 after having been convicted of defamation in PM Modi's home state of Gujarat.

Members of Congress wore black shirts and scarves as a sign of protest, and some even threw paper at the speaker during the proceedings. Following the chaos, Speaker Om Birla adjourned the proceedings till 4 pm.

Birla expressed his desire to run the House with dignity and decorum. "I want to run the House with dignity," he said. "Proceedings of the House are adjourned till 4 pm."

The move by the government to expel Gandhi has been criticised by many, including human rights groups, who have accused the government of suppressing dissent and targeting political opponents. The Opposition has accused the Modi government of using the legal system to silence critics and raised concerns about the state of democracy in India, the world's largest democracy.
