Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday attacked the government, alleging that it is “scared” of a discussion in Parliament on issues that concern people like price rise.
Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been rocked by Opposition protests since the Monsoon session commenced on July 19 over the Pegasus snooping controversy, farm laws and price rise.
“They are used to questions like ‘how do you eat mangoes’, therefore, they are scared of discussion in Parliament on issues that concern people like price rise,” Priyanka Gandhi alleged in a tweet in Hindi.
वे “आप आम कैसे खाते हैं” जैसे सवालों के आदी हैं, इसलिए बढ़ती महंगाई जैसे आमजनों को परेशान करने वाले सवालों पर संसद में चर्चा करने से डरते हैं। pic.twitter.com/9FnxXuII9I

The protests are over a “non-issue, non-serious issue”, said Joshi, the parliamentary affairs minister.
