Coming down heavily on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his remarks against the Centre, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Monday that they have requested the Election Commission to take stringent action against the former, adding that a mere notice is not enough. Puri said, “Today, we presented several issues before the EC. Yesterday, a meeting of the I.N.D.I.A. bloc was held at Ramlila Maidan. There, Rahul Gandhi said several things that are objectionable and have serious implications. Gandhi said that this is a fixed match. He also said that the Government has its own people in the EC and the elections can’t be won without the EVM. ECI has denied such allegations and said that there is no proof for all of them.” The Union Minister further said that the remarks made by Rahul Gandhi, wherein he alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he would sacrifice his life to save rapists, are “a low-level political discourse”.
“Rahul Gandhi also said that the rights provided by the Indian Constitution are being snatched away. He said that a BJP worker had said that after “400 paar”, the Constitution would be cancelled. We don’t know which worker said that. He also posted on ‘X’ and ‘Instagram’ an image of PM Modi and alleged that the PM said that he would give his life to save rapists. Such low-level political discourse! We can understand his frustration. His INDI alliance is breaking. We told the Election Commission that mere notice is enough, stringent action needs to be taken,” Puri said.
