Kolkata: BJP president Rajnath Singh on Monday said that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi`s comment that the ordinance on convicted lawmakers should be torn and thrown away, would create anarchy.
"Tearing it (ordinance) is not correct. Is Rahul trying to create an anarchy? He could have said instead that it should be again reconsidered by the Cabinet," Singh said.
The BJP veteran, who was here to address the members of the ICC and MCC Chamber here, however, said that it was an internal affair of the Congress party.
"It`s the party`s internal affair and I should not say anything, but what I can say is that Rahul should have restrained himself from such a remark, especially when the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was on foreign soil," he said in reply to reporters` queries.
He observed that the PM is not a person of a single political party, but a Prime Minister of the people.
"Snubbing the Prime Minister when he is overseas is not decent. It is unfortunate...It has demeaned the image of the country," Singh said.
