Hitting back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said some people in Delhi want to teach him lessons in democracy.
Rahul Gandhi recently took a jibe at the government saying that there was “no democracy” in India and that those who stood up against the PM were labeled terrorists “even if it were (RSS chief) Mohan Bhagwat .”
“There are people in Delhi who always taunt and insult me. They want to teach me lessons in democracy. I want to show them Jammu, and Kashmir DDC (District Development Council) polls as an example of democracy,” PM Modi said after launching the Ayushman Bharat scheme for health insurance coverage to all residents of the union territory.
“Some political forces keep lecturing on democracy but see their duplicity and hollowness. The party that rules in Puducherry hasn’t conducted local body elections despite the Supreme Court’s order. In contrast, Jammu and Kashmir held Panchayat-level polls within one year after becoming a union territory,” the Prime Minister said.
