Taking a jibe at Rahul’s Congress, Arun Jaitley says Indira or Rajiv Gandhi would never have supported anti-India slogans

The Finance Minister also criticized parties who have been running a campaign that democracy is under threat under the NDA government.

After BJP President Amit Shah asserted earlier today that the courts should not give unimplementable directions, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley appeared to hint towards his displeasure at judicial overreach during his speech at India Ideas Conclave organized by the India Foundation.

In his speech, Jaitley also attacked the Congress party for abandoning national interests for petty politics. He asserted that the Congress of old would never have supported those who raised anti-India slogans.

He stated, “Would Indira Gandhi or Rajiv Gandhi ever have gone to a congregation where “Bharat ke tukde tukde” slogans were raised? Certainly not. But now degeneration of ideology because of personal grievances and ambitions compelled Congress party leadership to do so.”

The Finance Minister also criticized parties who have been running a campaign that democracy is under threat under the NDA government. He said, “Several parties have inheritance based on caste, family inheritance instead of merit. Democracy can’t be saved by those committed to dynasty.”
