New Delhi: Continuing its attack on the Central government over convening of Winter Session of Parliament, Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge on Tuesday likened Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “Brahma, the creator”, who controls everything and said he alone knows when the Winter Session of Parliament will be convened. Targeting the PM over the delay in summoning Parliament, Mr Kharge alleged that democracy has suffered a “big jolt” under the Modi government. “I have talked to many ministers, the Speaker, Lok Sabha Secretary General, but no one knows the dates of Parliament session. Only one man knows and they call him Brahma, the creator. That’s why till Brahma orders, we won’t know the dates (of Parliament session),” Mr Kharge said. “Democracy has suffered a big jolt under the Modi government. We term it as Modi ‘Sarkar’, because BJP members and even ministers in the government do not know anything,” he said. Mr Kharge alleged the government was not convening the winter session to avoid facing criticism over issues it was uncomfortable about.

Targeting the prime minister, Mr Kharge said he was working at his own “whims and fancies”. “We condemn them (the government) for doing this. For (the sake of) democracy, we should run Parliament,” he said.

 

Mr Kharge said the Prime Minister did not want a Parliament session ahead of the Gujarat Assembly elections, as he feared the BJP will be “exposed.”
