Cong attacks Modi govt

NEW DELHI: Buoyed by the restoration of its govern¬ment in Uttarakhand, Congress today targeted the Modi dispensation in the Lok Sabha, saying it now hopes that the opposition governments will not be toppled anymore and the “murder of democracy” will stop. Soon after Supreme Court made public today the result of the confidence vote held in Uttarakhand Assembly yesterday, Leader of Congress Mallikarjun Kharge informed the House about it the development in which his party was declared a winner.
“Hope that the Centre would refrain from using Article 356 (by which President’s Rule is imposed on a state) and stop the murder of democracy,” he said, amid thumping of desks by Congress members, in¬cluding party chief Sonia Gandhi.
NCP members also joined in the thumping of desks as Kharge expressed the hope that the Centre would henceforth restrain from “such wrong and malafide moves”.
