New Delhi [India]: As Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification has triggered a war of words between the grand old party and the BJP-led Union government, party general secretary KC Venugopal said that every opposition party is together and they will move forward with the same energy.
Venugopal further took a jibe at the notification sent by the Housing Committee of Lok Sabha asking to vacate the government bungalow allotted to him. “Rahul Gandhi is not worried about the house. Whatever the government of India is doing with the country’s democracy is a bigger issue, that is what he told. Every Opposition party is together, we had a cordial discussion and we will move forward with the same energy,” he said.
Notably, days after his disqualification as MP following a Surat court’s verdict in a criminal defamation case, the Housing Committee of Lok Sabha has sent Congress leader Rahul Gandhi a notice to vacate the government bungalow allotted to him.
Rahul Gandhi has been asked to vacate 12, Tughlaq Lane in the national capital.
Rahul Gandhi has been given a period of 30 days to vacate the premises to avoid eviction.
