Govt scared, won't let me speak in Parliament: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that the BJP-led NDA government would not let him speak in Parliament because they are scared of his remark.

"The government said they are open to a discussion. Yes. But they will not let me speak in Parliament. I will speak (in Parliament) but they will not let me speak because they are scared of what I will say," Gandhi told the media here.

 

Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha was adjourned thrice on the first working day over slogan-shouting and protests by the Opposition over the suicide of research scholar Rohith Vemula at the Hyderabad Central University last month.

 

Later today, a high-decibel debate is expected when the Rajya Sabha discusses the JNU controversy from 2 pm.
