The leader of the opposition, Ghulam Nabi Azad in his Motion of Thanks, speech in Rajya Sabha said that BJP has created a fear in opposition parties, they are being presented as terrorists and their phones were being tapped.
“No one today talks to me over the phone because they say your phone is tapped,” he claimed.
Fear is not a good thing, especially in a democracy,” said Azad, as he called for “freedom of speech, freedom to socialize, freedom to do business”.
In his speech, Azad said the government is not only polarising the country but also dividing parties in the opposition and intimidating them by using the CBI and the ED.
Opposition members, including those from the Congress, SP, NCP and the Left parties, have moved as many as 324 amendments to the President’s speech as part of the debate on the Motion of Thanks.
