Businessman and Bajaj Group Chairman Rahul Bajaj has said that the people of India are afraid to speak out against the government. Rahul Gandhi is referring to Amit Shah. He also said that he was not sure if the Narendra Modi government could take criticism with the right attitude.
Rahul Bajaj criticized the Union government at the Economic Times Award Ceremony held in Mumbai on the occasion of Union Ministers Amit Shah, Nirmala Sitharaman and Piyush Goyal.
In the days of the Manmohan Singh government, people were free to criticize. But the current regime has created an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty, he said.
Amit Shah replied in the same vein that there was nothing to fear. The opposition is constantly criticizing the government. “A transparent government is trying to improve,” Amit Shah added.
Rahul Bajaj also made reference to Bhopal MP Pragya Singh Thakur’s Godse. He said, “I have no doubts as to who shot Gandhi.” Amit Shah responded by condemning Thakur’s delivery.
Former Prime Minister and Congress leader Manmohan Singh has said in a statement on Monday that the country has shifted from belief and confidence to the core of society.
