Hyderabad, March 24 (NSS): Reacting sharply to the disqualification of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi as a Member of the Parliament following his conviction and two-year jail sentence in a defamation case, BRS party president and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has condemned the act of the union government and termed it as “a dark day in the history of Indian democracy”.
In a statement here on Friday, the Chief Minister said, “Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from Parliament is the height of Narendra Modi’s arrogance and dictatorship. It is highly reproachable that the Modi government is not only abusing constitutional institutions but also using the highest democratic platform- the Parliament for its nefarious activities,”.
He said It was the adverse time for democracy and the Constitutional values and the Modi’s regime overshadowed the emergency.
“Harassment of opposition leaders has become a routine. Modi on his own is collapsing by disqualifying opposition leaders to protect criminals and cheaters,” KCR alleged.
The BRS leader also gave a clarion call to the Opposition parties to shed their differences and condemn the BJP’s misdeeds in unison, to safeguard the democracy and constitutional values of the country.
“This is not the time for conflicts between parties. All democrats should openly condemn the misdeeds of the BJP government to safeguard the democracy. Must resist the BJP’s evil policies,” KCR advised.
