Mallikarjun Kharge recalled former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru's contribution to Indian democracy in the Rajya Sabha on Monday, saying his outlook was inclusive as he took the opposition along and had laid the foundation of the Constitution. Participating in a discussion on the «Parliamentary Journey of 75 Years Starting from Samvidhan Sabha — Achievements, Experiences, Memories and Learnings», Kharge hit out at the BJP-led government over the issues of unemployment in the country and ethnic violence in Manipur.
He asked the government what did it achieve by shifting the parliamentary proceedings to a new building.
«Badalna hai to halat badlo, aise naam badalne se kya hota hai.
Dena hein to yuva ko rozgar do, sab ko berozgar karke kya hota hai. Dil ko thoda bada karke dekho, logon ko marne se kya hota hai.
Kuch kar nahi sakte ho, kursi chor do, baat baat mein darane se kya hota hai.
»Apni hukumrani par guroor hai, logon ko darane se dhamkane se kya hota hai. Badalna hai to halat badlo, aise naam badalne se kya hota hai.
