New Delhi, Dec 15: Congress vice president, Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that he has information about corruption by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. He also said that he wanted to speak about it in Parliament, but the ruling party was not allowing him to do so.

The Congress vice president will attempt to speak about the issue in Parliament, but the question is will it be possible. If Rahul Gandhi wants to speak about the issue in Parliament, then he will have to follow the rules of the Lok Sabha.

As per the rules, he will have to give prior notice to the Speaker and minister in charge. He will have to explain what he is speaking about and once a probe is conducted in to the allegations he is making will a decision be taken.

The Chair reserves the right to allow him to speak or not. If the Chair concludes that the allegations are derrogatory to the dignity of the House then Rahul Gandhi can be prevented from speaking.

In case Rahul Gandhi decides not to follow this procedure, then the Speaker reserves the right to expunge his remarks from the records. However if Rahul Gandhi decides to go ahead and speak without naming the person, then this loophole will come in the way of the Speaker taking any sort of action.
