After declaring that he has detailed information to establish Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "personal corruption," Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi met the PM today at parliament. Raising the plight of farmers who he met with during his extensive tour of Uttar Pradesh - which will vote soon for its next government - Mr Gandhi sought loan waivers for them.
"The Prime Minister accepted that the situation of the farmers is serious... he didn't say anything about the loan waiver," Mr Gandhi told reporters.
On Wednesday, Mr Gandhi was picked by opposition leaders from as many as 15 parties to speak on their behalf. "Read my lips," he told reporters at parliament, before claiming that PM Modi is "terrified" by the likelihood of "detailed information about his personal corruption" being shared by Mr Gandhi in parliament. This, the Congress No 2 concluded, is why the government has refused to yield to the opposition's demand for a debate in parliament that will be followed by a vote on its sudden cancellation of high-denomination notes.
