Congress Leader & MP, Rahul Gandhi held a press conference yesterday, where he was questioned regarding the weak stance of the opposition. He was questioned if the BJP was doing all the wrong, only because the country has a weak opposition?
Rahul Gandhi said, “The opposition in any country, functions within a framework. That framework is the press, the judicial system, the framer of the constitution that protects the voice of the people. And that, entire framework has been captured. The entire architecture of being the voice of the public has been captured by the BJP.”
He added, “if the entire institutional architecture is captured, then to say the opposite is weak, is not exactly a statement.”
Further he said, “Give me a free press, institutions that are free, and the Government will not last. I don’t have that. I can take clear-cut proof. For example, the Rafale deal.”
Gandhi recently carried out several protests – first, the Hathras Case; second, the Farm Bill protests in Haryana & Punjab.
