New Delhi, Aug 6 (IBNS): Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said they were not being allowed to speak in Parliament.

“We are not being allowed to speak in Parliament. We are asking for a discussion. There is a mentality in the government that discussion is not acceptable. Everybody feels it. We feel it. There is a mood in Parliament that only one man’s voice counts for anything in this country,” he told media persons.

Gandhi also marched to the well of the House, along with other Congress MPs, after Speaker Sumitra Mahajan refused to allow a discussion on communal violence taking place in Uttar Pradesh and other parts of the country.

The Congress had sought an adjournment of the house proceedings to discuss communal violence issue.

Asked about his rare show of protest in Parliament, the 44-year-old Congress parliamentarian said, “I have raised my voice many times in Parliament”
