Rahul rules out debate until Sushma quits

Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his “silence” on the Lalit Modi controversy, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said his party was against discussion until External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj steps down.

Claiming that Mr. Modi’s credibility was on the decline, Mr. Gandhi said the Prime Minister should listen to the voices of the people of the country who had been demanding an answer from him over controversies confronting the government.

“No answer”

“We asked the PM what he thinks about Lalit Modi. We got no answer. We got no answer on the Vyapam scam, no answer on Chhattisgarh and no answer on Sushma Swaraj,” the Congress leader told presspersons outside Parliament. Rahul’s comments come against the backdrop of the stalemate persisting in both Houses of Parliament with the Congress-led Opposition aggressively pressing for ouster of Ms. Swaraj and the Chief Ministers of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Singh Chouhan over the Lalit Modi controversy and Vyapam scam.
