Government of India is concerned at the breach of privacy of citizens of India: Ravi Shankar Prasad


Rahul Gandhi should disclose the location and purpose of his foreign travels: GVL Narasimha Rao

GVL Narasimha Rao – National Spokesperson, BJP spoke to the media about Rahul Gandhi’s foreign tours. Excerpts :

  • Rahul Gandhi has traveled abroad on 16 occasions in the last five years. He’s traveled abroad more than to his own parliamentary constituency, Wayanad.
  • That is one reason why people of Amethi chose to send him home, and not to re-elect him again in 2019.
  • 9 out of 16 visits have been to undisclosed locations. The location and the purpose of these visits have been kept a secret.
  • We are certainly against the secrecy of Rahul Gandhi’s travels abroad. What is the difficulty in disclosing the details.
  • Every Member of Parliament of India conforms to the norms of the House and follows certain procedures while traveling, even if its a private visit.
  • Every MP is called upon to disclose the place of his visit, the dates, and their addresses where they are staying.
  • What is the great secrecy about Rahul Gandhi that he cannot inform the Parliament?
  • No such information has been provided to the LS Secretariat.
  • We demand that Mr. Gandhi conforms to the norms and discloses the location and purpose of his travels.
  • A lot of doubts are rising: Who is funding his trips? What is the purpose of his trips? Is there any motive which is not disclosed?
