March 15,2023

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over the latter’s remarks during his recent UK visit. Addressing a large gathering of people in poll-bound Karnataka's Hubballi-Dharwad, PM Modi said that it was "unfortunate" that questions were raised about India's democracy in London.

"India is not only the largest democracy but is the mother of democracy.. It's unfortunate that in London, questions were raised about India's democracy. Some people are constantly questioning India's democracy,” PM Modi said on Sunday.

The remark came after the Wayanad MP told British parliamentarians in London that functioning microphones in the Lok Sabha are often silenced against the Opposition and structures of Indian democracy are under “brutal attack."

Gandhi alleged that the media, the institutional frameworks, the judiciary, and Parliament are all under attack.
