There is a lot of uproar in Parliament on the issue of Rahul Gandhi’s apology and Adani. Because of this, necessary bills are not being passed in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha for the last 7 days. Meanwhile, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh held a press conference on the Adani issue on Wednesday. He said- For the last three-four days, efforts are being made that if the opposition withdraws the demand of JPC, then the BJP will withdraw the demand for an apology from Rahul Gandhi. We will not do this deal. We want Modi ji to break the silence, not Adani. Read Jairam Ramesh’s statement in sequence…
The scam is not even in the stock market, it is an issue related to the policies of the government.
He said that the scam is not limited to the stock market only, but it is also related to the policies, intentions and intentions of PM Modi and the government. The committee that has been set up in the Supreme Court consists of well-known experts. This committee is Adani centric committee. He will question Adani. The question we are asking is not to Adani but to the Prime Minister. This is the fundamental difference between committee and JPC.
Supreme Court committee will give clean chit to the government
Jairam said that the Supreme Court committee will not question the government on this question. They will not even think, they will not have the courage. He will give them a clean chit. To consider these questions. It can be raised only in JPC. JPC will have BJP president. The majority will also be theirs, but in spite of this the opposition will get a chance. To raise these questions, then the answer will come from the government. All this will be recorded.
Hundred questions JPC There is a demand today and there will be tomorrow also
Jairam said that there was a hit film made in 1961, its name was Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai. Devanand and Asha Parekh had a hit song from the movie Sau Saan Pe Mujhe Tumse Pyar Tha. It is today and will be tomorrow also. Even today I remember that song.
Hundred questions ago there was a demand for JPC, it is there today and will be there tomorrow also. We have been asking the Prime Minister three questions every day since February 5. Today 100 questions have been completed. We are not asking this question to Adani, we are asking this question to the PM, we are asking the government.
Jairam said – In 1992, the demand for JPC was also raised in the Harshad Mehta scam.
Jairam said that at the time of Harshad Mehta scam in 1992, the demand for JPC was raised by the opposition. But the government did not support it. Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, Finance Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh gave approval only after two-three months and JPC was formed in 1992 on the Harshad Mehta scam.
After this the report came and action was taken on it. At that time the powers of SEBI were given. The capital market was further strengthened. Another scam happened in 2001 Ketan Pareek scam when Congress was in opposition. Atal Vihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister. Pranab Mukherjee and Manmohan Singh had demanded JPC regarding this, but Vajpayee did not agree. Later they were discussed and then they agreed.
The committee does nothing but exonerate the government and the PM
He said that while addressing on February 15, I had said that this committee is nothing but an exercise to exonerate the government and the Prime Minister. That’s why we are repeatedly demanding JPC. There is a fact that what we are asking is a fundamental question. The apology that the BJP is demanding is a false allegation and baseless. There is a world of difference between these two things. All this is being done to divert our attention from the Adani issue. The Prime Minister has distracted Rahul Gandhi’s statements.
It is a democratic right of Rahul Gandhi to speak in Parliament
The Congress leader said that Rahul Gandhi has written a letter to the Speaker. Under Rule 357 of the Lok Sabha, he has demanded that he be given a chance to speak. This becomes their democratic right. Only time will tell what decision the speaker will take on this.
