 Mimicry video row: Rahul Gandhi slams BJP, media for ignoring issues like MP suspensions, unemployment | India News - Times of India

New Delhi: Controversy over a video showing TMCMP Kalyan Banerjee. cheat Chairman of the Rajya Sabha Jagdeep Dhankar hit the headlines for the second day as Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hit out at the ruling BJP for ignoring demands to discuss Gautam Adani, the Rafale deal and rising unemployment in Parliament.
He hit out at the media for focusing only on the video row instead of discussing the fact that 143 opposition MPs have now been suspended from Parliament.
“The MPs were sitting there, I videoed them, I have the video on my phone, the media is showing it… nobody said anything… 150 of our MPs were kicked out (of the House). But there is no discussion. There is no discussion in the media on Adani, no discussion on Rafale, no discussion on unemployment, our MPs are frustrated and sitting outside, but you are discussing it. Doing (imitation)… BJP and opposition parties after a video went viral showing Kalyan Banerjee mocking the VP by clearly imitating his behavior during a mock session of the House. Rahul Gandhi was seen recording the act on his mobile phone.
Dhankhar later described the behavior as “shameful and unacceptable”.
Addressing former Union Minister P Chidambaram in the House, the Chairman said: “Mr Chidambaram, you are a very senior member. Imagine what must be going through my heart when your senior leader as an individual is the institution of MPs mocking the chairman will be videographed. Take it from me.”
The BJP also attacked the opposition, claiming that the Indian bloc has a tradition of insulting people who come from backward and humble backgrounds and hold constitutional positions.
