Rajnath Singh asserted that opposition leaders can not become silent spectators like cheerleaders and can not allow the ruling government to indulge in corruption cases. The BJP President clarified why BJP leaders can not be expected to keep clapping like "cheerleaders" in Parliament while the ruling government at the Centre allegedly kept engaging in corruption.
Criticising the PM for his statement, Rajnath Singh said, "The prime minister says that BJP does not allow the country's economic situation to improve, they accuse us of not letting the House (Parliament) to run smoothly."
BJP has a role to play in Parliament: Rajnath Singh
"We are the principal Opposition party and we have a role to play to see that the interests of the people are protected. Are we cheerleaders that we will keep clapping for you and you continue to indulge in corruption," said Rajnath Singh.
Continuing his statement at the rally at Chandigarh, Rajnath Singh also added, "The PM says the way we (the Opposition) behave in Parliament, foreign investors are not coming (to India)... Will our country's economy depend on foreign investors alone?"
"We are not against globalisation and modernisation, but as regards the country's autonomy, if any foreign power tries to put a question mark on that, BJP will not tolerate it," clarified Rajnath Singh sending a clear message and warning for the Central government-led by the Congress.
The BJP President also stated that the party does not do politics of just forming government, rather they do politics of building a nation, a society.
