Varun Gandhi denounces Rahul's outburst

BJP general secretary Varun Gandhi on Sunday denounced Rahul’s Gandhi’s outburst against the controversial ordinance to protect convicted lawmakers, saying it was an “insult” to the prime minister and “disgraceful” for the nation.

“Rahul’s comments denouncing the ordinance is an insult to the prime minister. Such an insult to the PM, who is abroad, is thus also disgraceful for the entire nation,” Varun was quoted as telling at the party’s state Executive Committee meeting .

BJP state president Rahul Sinha while briefing about the party’s closed-door meeting quoted Varun as saying, “It is most unethical to make such a comment on any issue when the prime minister is abroad in particular and that too by his own party’s top leader.” Sinha demanded immediate resignation of the prime minister and his government as well as resignation of Congress president Sonia Gandhi from her post.

“Since Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi believed that the ordinance was a complete nonsense and it should be torn up and thrown away, neither the prime minister nor his government has any moral right to continue. Soniaji should also resign from the top post in the party for the disgraceful act by her party leader,” Sinha said.
