'Soniaji wants two things now...': BJP MP targets Sonia Gandhi over Opposition's no-trust vote

New Delhi/IBNS: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Nishikant Dubey Tuesday targetted Sonia Gandhi during the debate on the No-Confidence Motion against the Narendra Modi government in Parliament and said the former Congress chief now wants two things and one of which is to "establish her son" Rahul Gandhi.

"I have great respect for Sonia-ji. She has adopted the life of a Hindu woman and does everything one is expected to do. She now has only two primary concerns -- Bete ko set karna hai aur daamad ko bhet karna hai (She wants to establish her son and give gifts to her son-in-law)," Dubey said.

According to him, this is the reason for the Opposition's No-Confidence Motion against the Modi government.

The house broke out in laughter at his comment and even Sonia Gandhi was seen joining in.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi, who was reinstated in Parliament on Monday after getting a reprieve from the Supreme Court, was expected to open the debate Tuesday.

However, reports suggested that he would speak on Thursday, the same day as Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Taking a dig at that too, Dubey said  "Maybe Rahul Gandhi wasn't ready today or maybe he woke late. Gaurav Gogoi (who opened the debate) spoke well."

Dubey also made a jibe at Rahul Gandhi over his remarks on VD Savarkar and commented on the Supreme Court freeze on his conviction in the defamation case.

"The Supreme Court has not given a judgment. It has given a stay order...He is saying that he will not apologise… Secondly, he says "I am not Savarkar" - You can never be Veer Savakar," the BJP MP said.

The Opposition, which had brought the No-Confidence Motion despite lacking in numbers, admitted that it was a method to compel the Prime Minister to speak on Manipur -- which has been one of their key demands in the monsoon session.
