Gandhi on Friday said that he was waiting to see what "new emotion" the Prime Minister would express over the matter now as his expressions outside the Parliament expose his nervousness.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday hit back at Rahul Gandhi for mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s absence in Parliament and said it was ironical of the Congress vice-president to make such assertions given the fact that he was adjudged the “worst parliamentarian” in the history of Lok Sabha.

“Rahul Gandhi, who bunks Parliament most of the time, who is not seen to be doing worthwhile outside the Parliament, I think he is not really worthy to make such comments. I think it is a joke because Rahul Gandhi has been adjudged to be one the worst parliamentarians in the previous term and that continues to be the case in the present Lok Sabha as well,” BJP leader G.V.L Narasimha Rao told reporters.

Rao further said it is not “worthy” of Gandhi to comment on the Prime Minister as the latter has been working for the welfare of the people and working to ensure that the country is back on track.

“For the last two and half years, he has brought about massive transformation and discipline into governance. So, for the Congress Party to demand Prime Minister Modi’s attendance they should first tell Rahul Gandhi to learn the basics of parliamentary responsibility and accountability,” he added.

The BJP leader’s comments came a day after Gandhi took a dig at Prime Minister Modi for not steering clear of the debate on demonetisation.

Gandhi on Friday said that he was waiting to see what “new emotion” the Prime Minister would express over the matter now as his expressions outside the Parliament expose his nervousness.

“He was earlier laughing and then he cried outside the Parliament, he should come in house and then we will see what new emotion he will show us here,” he said.

    Everyone can question the PM, the Govt.- only a dictator can ban people questioning, it is the people who pay PM and the Ministers, they are the servants and not above the people , consution : if they can not allow the freedom of citizens they can not rule under the consution. i.e. they have lost the right to rule and run the govt.

        All GVNL Narsimha Rao can do is run down others to counter his party's misdoings. He has an IQ of 10.

                      When ever Modi and BJP make any Ber they start blaming congress and previous government for it. They have been ruling the country for more than two and a half year now still act if Congress is in power and they are in opposition.

                        It the voters and people who will decide who is worst in 2019 elections. If any benefits to the people and country does not show up inspite of so much pain and hardship by people mainly middle cl and poor while BJP ministers in suit and boot giving comments and travelling on people expenses to beat the drum of their unplanned actions.

                            Language used by G.V.L Narasimha Rao as spokesman of party in power is unworthy of any comment in a parliamentary democracy.

                              One more joke from Rahul. He does not have ideas himself, somebody has to give him some. lt;br/gt;The gentleman was away for Meditation for around a month to far east and skipped Parliament. He did not earn his seat, but got if gratis because of his birth.

                                The BJP leaders are suffocated because of the events that took place after NOV 8th. Getting a little bit of majority in the parliament is people's mandate.And that doesn't mean that the govt is unquestionable or above criticism.For everything to be criticized there is a govt which preceeded the present one and for all other things the members of hi family to be targeted.When Shri Rahul hi,pes statements not less than five to ten members of BJP are on their toes to quickly give it back. We have a strong democracy where we are answerable to the people .Therefore first that should be done.Simultaneously you can attack like mob on the opposition.The implementation is criticised because people died and are suffering and some other events took placestead of giving explanation to those ,opposition party leaders are being attacked.

                                  Rahul should visit Bangkok again for sometime. Instead of meddling in important affairs.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Demonetization is the best thing that has happened in the country. ALl these people who made money on 2G Scam, Col gate and Augusta scams are crying because they are stuck with lots of black money.

                                          Even though he is spokesperson of BJP, it would help him as a human being to develop some sense of balance and moderation.
