These questions asked by Rahul Gandhi in the Parliament in last five years will stun you

Rahul Gandhi is serving his third term as a Member of Parliament from Amethi

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, in his five years as an Amethi MP in the 16th Lok Sabha, had not asked a single question in the Parliament. Neither did he try to introduce any private member bill in the Parliament. The third-time Lok Sabha MP did wake up in January 2019 to rake up the ‘Rafale’ issue and held 2 debates regarding the same. In total, he had participated in 13 debates in the Parliament.

It seems that the Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who keeps making headlines for something or the other that he comes up with to attack Prime Minister Modi and the BJP government, lags far behind when it comes to his own performance as an MP.

Rahul Gandhi, however, is not the only one who has asked zero questions in the Parliament. There are a total of 31 such MPs including some top names. Rahul’s mother and former Congress President Sonia Gandhi is also there in the list accompanied by SP Patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, Dimple Yadav wife of SP President Akhilesh Yadav, rebel BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha and JD(S) Supremo H D Devegowda.

Gandhi who is out on bail in National Herald case has been attacking Modi and the BJP government over a number of issues ranging form Rafale deals to farmer loans. However, recently the attacks by Congress dynast went an all-time low when he used a courtesy visit to the BJP leader and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to attack PM Modi on Rafale deals. Rahul made a false statement about having discussed Rafale deals with Parrikar during the short visit. Rahul’s false claims were condemned by Parrikar in a strongly worded letter in which the CM criticised Rahul for using the visit for “petty political gains”.
