Kharge poetically told BJP – If you cannot do anything then leave the chair.
A different style of Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge was seen in the old Parliament today. He started his speech by reciting poetry in Rajya Sabha. He said- If you want to change then change the situation now, what happens by changing the name like this. If you have to give then give employment to the youth, what happens by making everyone unemployed. Expand your heart a little and see what happens when you kill people. If you can’t do anything then leave your chair, what’s the point of threatening you in conversation? You are proud of your rule, what is the use of intimidating people?
When Kharge said to the Chairman – We see you, you see them
Kharge accused the Center of suppressing the voice of the opposition. He told Rajya Sabha Chairman and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar – They (BJP) do not even listen to you. We see you and you see them. On this Dhankhar said – Kharge ji, I am not helpless, I am strong.
Congress President Kharge said – Nadda says INDI to make our alliance small.

Supriya Sule said- Today BJP did not take the names of Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley.
NCP MP Supriya Sule praised PM Modi’s speech. Then he said- Today BJP did not take the names of its two leaders, whose work I am very impressed with.

There should always be talk of good work.
