India is a unique parliamentary democracy where no questions are asked and there is no debate, Congress leader P Chidambaram said on Tuesday that the party was not allowed to speak on the Ladakh deadlock issue in the Lok Sabha.
After the statement of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on the deadlock on the border with China in East Ladakh, the Congress members walked out of the Lok Sabha and staged a protest in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue in the Parliament House complex. .
“India today is a unique parliamentary democracy where no questions can be asked and where no debate is allowed,” he tweeted.
P Chidambaram also attacked the Center for its statement that it did not have data on the number of migrants who died during the lockdown.
He said in the tweet, “India today is a unique country where no data is kept about migrants who return on long treks or die after reaching home.”
The former finance minister also tried to curse the government on the country’s economic condition.
“India today is a unique economy where an amount of 1.7 percent of GDP is transferred in cash or grain, which is considered a substantial” fiscal stimulus “.
He said, “India today is a miracle nation where the” fastest growing economy “has turned into the” deepest growth “in 3 months.
The country’s GDP growth declined by 23.9 percent for the first quarter of 2020-21 due to a lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
