Congress hits back at Giriraj, asks why PM is not sacking rape chargesheeted minister
Patna,(BiharTimes): The media panellist of All India Congress Committee, Prem Chandra Mishra, on Wednesday reacted sharply to Union minister Giriraj Singh’s tirade against party chief Rahul Gandhi over Brajesh Pandey episode.
Talking to the media he asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to first apologise for retaining Nihal Chand as a cabinet minister despite the latter being chargesheeted by the police in a rape case in Rajasthan.
He said the BJP has no moral right to sermonise the Congress on ethics. Pandey immediately resigned from all party posts after his name came up in an alleged sex racket. The charge is yet to be tried in a court of law.
On the other hand, according to Mishra, , Nihal Chand, was charged with rape in Rajasthan, yet he is brazenly continuing in the Union cabinet.
Earlier, Giriraj Singh has sought public apology from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for the misdeeds of Brajesh Pandey.
