However, the Congress party has denied all the allegations of the BJP. The party said Gandhi is trying to get a chance to speak in Parliament and is responding to all criticism accordingly.
The Congress said the BJP was “misrepresenting” Gandhi’s statements to divert attention from the Adani issue in the country.
Earlier, during an interaction in UK, Rahu Gandhi said that the structure of Indian democracy is under attack in India. He said that there was a “full-scale attack” on democratic institutions in India.
His comments have sparked a political crisis in India as the BJP has been saying that he has tarnished India’s image abroad.
Meanwhile, Delhi Police reached Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s residence in connection with the notice served to him earlier on Sunday.
