New Delhi, July 30: Suspended Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirti Azad on Monday praised no-confidence motion speech of Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
Speaking to media, he said, “Rahul Gandhi had given a good speech in Parliament on no-confidence motion & has been raising important questions recently”.
“I don’t think appreciating anyone for good work is violating party lines. I am on good terms with people from opposition parties”, Azad added.
Dropping hints of joining Congress, Last month also Azad hailed Gandhi and had reportedly said that he would like to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from his Darbhanga constituency on the ticket of a national party.
In his fiery speech during no-confidence motion debate, the Congress President hit out at the Narendra Modi government over issues ranging from Demonetisation to defence issues including Rafale deal and matters relating to the country especially atrocities on Dalits, women safety and Lynching.
Concluding his nearly 40-minute speech Gandhi said “I have not an iota of hatred or hard feelings against you. You hate me. You may call me Pappu, you can use a stream of expletives for me. But I don’t hate you or have even slightest of anger for you. I am the Congress”.
