Congress Parliamentary Party meeting: Sonia targets government, says MPs’ suspension outrageous.

Lashing out at the Centre, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday accused it of being “impervious” to the suffering of the people due to rising prices and alleged that it is “selling off precious national assets” and refusing to allow a discussion in Parliament on the challenges India faces at the borders.

She said the Congress will continue to insist on a discussion in Parliament on challenges facing the agricultural sector and the border situation. Addressing a meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) meeting at Parliament House, Sonia also questioned the government’s Covid-19 vaccination strategy and said the country is nowhere close to reaching the level of double-dose vaccination announced by the government for the end of the year. She also argued that suspension of 12 Opposition Rajya Sabha members for the entire winter session was “outrageous” and “unprecedented.”
