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.
