Rahul Gandhi on BBC raids in London says Suppression of voice Modi govt wants to silence everyone
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi called the recent raids on BBC offices in India a “suppression of voice” and denounced the Modi government, saying that under its “new idea of India”, the BJP wants the country to be “quiet”.
The Congress scion interacted at an Indian Journalists Association event in London.
“You know there is opposition everywhere, there is an excuse. You asked why we did the yatra, what was the idea behind the yatra. The idea behind the yatra was an expression of voice. And there is suppression of voice in the whole country An example is the BBC, but the BBC is only one part of it,” said Rahul Gandhi.
Speaking of the Center’s allegations of a “colonial hangover,” Rahul Gandhi said, “it’s a bit like Mr. Adani, it’s also a colonial hangover.”
Rahul Gandhi further said in the BBC documentary that if they (BBC) stop writing against the government, everything will return to normal, all cases will disappear and everything will return to normal.
He said this is India’s new idea, the government wants everyone to be silent.
BJP denounced the former congress chief for defaming the country into a foreign nation and said that just because Rahul Gandhi is not smart does not mean India is not.
The saffron party further said that the congress leader made such accusations against the country that even Pakistan would not dare to make.
