New Delhi. Former Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday targeted the opposition parties over the uproar in Parliament during the Monsoon Session. He said that we also have to ask many sharp questions to the Congress party. In a press conference held at the Bharatiya Janata Party’s headquarters in Delhi, he mentioned the completion of two years after the abrogation of Article 370. During this, he congratulated the Indian hockey team, which won a medal after 41 years in the Tokyo Olympics, on the victory.
Regarding the uproar of the opposition in Parliament during the monsoon session, Prasad said, “Congress ruled for almost 50 years since 1947. But it is important for the country to know how appropriate their behavior is today. He said, ‘Congress has a simple mantra that as long as Parliament serves the interests of the family, the Parliament will be allowed to function. Where the interest of the family is not there, the Parliament will not be allowed to function.
‘Ready for discussion’
He has described the allegations of spying on the government through Pegasus spyware as ‘sponsored’. He said, ‘We are ready for discussion in Parliament. We have to ask the Congress party even very tough questions. But one question we honestly ask is whether the Congress party and the opposition want discussion in Parliament?’
Prasad said, ‘Today we are ready for discussion in Parliament. But Congress is not serious. When the minister’s statement on Pegasus happened, these people tore it in front of the minister. There is no seriousness in these people. Have they given any proof till date that their phone has been tapped? No’
