Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram hit out at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for allegedly making key decisions without prior Cabinet approval. He was referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement on Friday, wherein he declared that the Centre will repeal all the three farm laws with the due procedure in Parliament. In a tweet on Saturday,he also launched an attack on Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP national president JP Nadda over their tweets following PM Modi's speech on Friday morning. “Where were these worthy leaders and their wise advice in the last 15 months?” tweeted Chidambaram.
Where were these worthy leaders and their wise advice in the last 15 months?— P. Chidambaram (@PChidambaram_IN) November 20, 2021
Did you notice that the PM made the announcement without holding a Cabinet meeting?
It is only under the BJP that laws are made and unmade without prior Cabinet approval
Chidambaram took a dig at the government , saying the move was not inspired by a change of heart but impelled by "fear of elections". What cannot be achieved by democratic protests can be achieved by the fear of impending elections, he said.
