Defending Jaitley, Naidu said his government has done nothing wrong since coming to power. “No minister has done anything wrong. No one can raise a finger on us,” said Naidu.
Slamming Congress for disrupting the functioning of Parliament during the Winter session, Naidu said the party feels threatened by Modi government and it wants to sabotage the Parliament and democracy.
“The nation needs to be given an explanation by Congress as to why they didn’t let Rajya Sabha function,” said Venkaiah Naidu.
