Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fierce attack on the Opposition front India, citing terror outfit Indian Mujahideen and the banned Popular Front of India, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi retaliated with a resolute response.
Taking to Twitter, Gandhi delivered a powerful message: “Call us whatever you want, Mr. Modi. We are INDIA. We will help heal Manipur and wipe the tears of every woman and child. We will bring back love and peace for all her people. We will rebuild the idea of India in Manipur.”
Call us whatever you want, Mr. Modi.
We are INDIA.
We will help heal Manipur and wipe the tears of every woman and child. We will bring back love and peace for all her people.
We will rebuild the idea of India in Manipur.
— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) July 25, 2023
The Prime Minister’s remarks and Gandhi’s assertive stand came amidst the ongoing unrest in Manipur, which has once again grabbed the nation’s attention. A shocking video of two tribal women being paraded naked has horrified the entire country.
As the Monsoon Session of Parliament commenced, the Opposition began pressing for a detailed discussion on the situation in Manipur. However, an impasse was created when the Centre was willing to discuss the issue but the Opposition in Rajya Sabha demanded the suspension of all other business for the Manipur discussion. Additionally, they insisted on the Prime Minister addressing the Parliament on the matter.
The government now faces a united Opposition front, which is strategically coordinating its floor plans. The Opposition front India, with its sights set on challenging the ruling BJP in the upcoming 2024 general elections, has raised questions about the Prime Minister’s public statements on Manipur without addressing the Parliament.
Adding to the complexity of the situation, Rahul Gandhi is not attending the Monsoon Session due to his disqualification as an MP following his conviction in a criminal defamation case. After facing disappointment in the High Court, he has now approached the Supreme Court on the matter.
Despite being absent from the Parliament, Rahul Gandhi’s determination to rebuild the idea of India in Manipur remains unwavering. His resolute stand indicates the depth of concern for the people of Manipur and his commitment to bring healing and peace to the region.
As the political tussle continues, all eyes are on Manipur and the Parliament’s response to the pressing issues facing the state. Rahul Gandhi’s powerful message resonates with those seeking a resolution, and the Opposition’s united front intensifies the pressure on the government to address the concerns raised.
The situation in Manipur remains tense as the Opposition relentlessly pursues a detailed discussion on the matter in Parliament. Rahul Gandhi’s absence does not dampen his determination to rebuild the idea of India in Manipur, and his words echo a message of hope and unity for the region’s people. As the nation watches, the government faces the challenge of addressing the unrest and finding a way forward for Manipur. Only time will tell how this situation unfolds in the days to come.
