Lok Sabha Session: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday listed 10 issues that occurred in the first 15 days of the Modi 3.0 government. These included the NEET-UG 2024 question paper leak, deaths due to heatwave in North India, terror attacks in Kashmir, and more. Notably, Monday was also the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned to power for a third consecutive term.

“Psychologically on the back foot, Narendra Modi is busy saving his government,” alleged Rahul Gandhi.

The issues listed by Rahul Gandhi included “a horrific train accident, terrorist attacks in Kashmir, the plight of passengers in trains, NEET scam, NEET PG cancelled, UGC NET paper leak, essentials such as milk, pulses and gas turn expensive, forest fires, water crisis, and deaths due to lack of arrangements during heatwave”.

In his tweet, Rahul Gandhi added, “INDIA’s strong opposition will continue its pressure, raise the voice of the people, and will not allow the Prime Minister to escape without accountability.”

On Monday, Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah of “attacking” the Constitution. He emphasised that the Opposition INDIA bloc finds such assaults unacceptable.

Opposition leaders, including Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, protested on Parliament premises, holding copies of the Constitution in their hands.

Earlier today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing media persons before the commencement of the Parliament session, took an indirect jab at the Congress over the Emergency imposed in 1975, calling it a “blot” on democracy “when the Constitution was discarded”.

“Tomorrow is 25th June. 25th June marks 50 years of the blot that was put on the democracy of India. The new generation of India will never forget that the Constitution of India was completely rejected, every part of the Constitution was torn to pieces, the country was turned into a prison, and democracy was completely suppressed,” he said.
