The Parliamentary Committee on Defense Affairs met on Wednesday. Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi walked out of this meeting. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar targeted Rahul on this.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Thursday. He alleged that he was not given a chance to speak at the parliamentary committee meeting. Rahul Birla appealed to take the matter seriously so as to protect the right of elected MPs to speak openly in the meetings.

After this, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar retaliated and asked Rahul to respect constitutional institutions. He said, ‘How much respect do they have for constitutional institutions? He got up from the committee meeting and went out. The Standing Committee does not allow speech to protest. They should learn to respect constitutional institutions. If this does not happen, then his role in democracy will begin to be questioned.

14 sessions in one and a half year, Rahul absent from 12
He said, ‘Maybe Rahul Gandhi does not know that sessions are also held to decide the agenda of the meeting, but he does not exist in these sessions. In the last year and a half, 14 sessions were called. Of these, Rahul only attended 2.

He said, “First Rahul does not participate in the session, after that he questions the BJP government and the process.”

Congress leaders including Rahul had walkout
Earlier on Wednesday, the Parliamentary Committee on Defense Affairs met. Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi walked out of this meeting. According to sources, Rahul alleged that the uniforms of the forces were being discussed in the meeting instead of national security. Rahul described it as a waste of parliamentary committee time.

In the committee meeting, Rahul Gandhi wanted to talk about tension in China from Ladakh and giving better weapons to soldiers. However, the committee chairman, Jual Oram (BJP), did not allow him to do so.

Rahul wanted to discuss national security
According to sources, the issue of uniforms of Army, Navy and Airforce was being discussed in the presence of Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat. At the same time, Rahul wanted to talk about national security and the ongoing tension with China in Ladakh.

When the chairman of the committee did not allow Rahul Gandhi to speak, he walked out of the meeting. Along with Rahul, Congress MPs Rajiv Satav and Revnath Reddy also exited the meeting.
