Delhi: Keeping up his attack on the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that he would speak on the issue of corruption in the upcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament but was not sure if Prime Minister Narendra Modi would do so.
Rahul made the comments at the Iftar party hosted by the Congress president Sonia Gandhi in the national capital today.
On being asked by mediapersons if he'll raise issue of corruption in Parliament, the Congress VP quipped, “I will speak, don't know about the PM,” as per ANI.
In his so-called new avatar, Rahul has been relentless in his attack on the BJP and has been taking continuous dig at PM Modi on various issues from Land Acquisition Bill to farmer's plight to corruption.
Last week he had reminded PM Modi of his poll promise to end corruption when the matter of Vyapam scam had hit the headlines.
Rahul had asked the PM as to why he was not taking action against Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who is alleged to be embroiled in the massive admission and recruitment scam in the state.
"From what the people of India and I remember, our PM had said, which I would like to reiterate, 'na khaoonga, na khane doonga' (will not engage in corruption myself, nor allow others). Why are you allowing corruption in Rajasthan? What are you doing to bring back Lalit Modi? Why are you not acting against Shivraj Singh Chouhan," he had said as per PTI.
And before that he had taken on the NDA government when the matter of favours being granted by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to former IPL chief Lalit Modi had come to light.
He had categorically asked PM Modi to stop protecting the External Affairs Minister and sack her.
He had added that the PM should also stop protecting Lalit Modi, claiming that he was the symbol of black money.
