Shashi Tharoor’s Jibe At PM: Modi Gave More Speeches In Foreign Parliament Than Our Own

New Delhi: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that PM Modi speaks more in foreign parliament than in our own.

The Thiruvananthapuram MP made the statement during a book launch event on Monday where he compared the working style of India’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and PM Modi. He also compared the ideology of both the Prime Ministers with respect to democracy, democratic institutions, and freedom of expression.

“Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given more speeches in the foreign Parliament than in the Indian Parliament which is the opposite of Nehru,” Shashi Tharoor said, as quoted by news agency ANI.

He recalled the period of the India-China war in 1962, mentioning that then PM Jawaharlal Nehru called a Parliament session and discussed the issues.

Today it is even not allowed to raise a question related to border issues between India and China, he claimed.

“In 1962, when India was at war with China, then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru called a Parliament session and discussed it. But today, we are not allowed to raise questions about what is happening in China, especially in the Galwan Valley,” Tharoor said.

He stressed that there is no discussion in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha regarding the India-China border issues, despite the death of twenty Indian soldiers who lost their lives.

The statement comes after the Parliament’s Monsoon session ended on Monday, four days ahead of schedule, after continued disruptions during the last three weeks over issues like price rise, suspension of 27 MPs, the controversial “Rashtrapatni” remark, and the Enforcement Directorate’s action.

The Congress alleged that the Union government did not have a legislative agenda and though it listed 32 bills at the start of the session, it managed to pass only seven in Lok Sabha and five in Rajya Sabha.
