Sudip Bandyopadhyay speaks on the attack on Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Madam, Rahul Gandhi ji is the leader of the largest Opposition party of the country. I think there should be no ifs and buts and no questions (about condemning) the attack on him. The incident is highly condemnable and disgraceful. Everybody should condemn it. We feel that this incident is the reflection of intolerance which is rising in the society.

Why should a political leader not be allowed to campaign or carry out any party work? Like Rajnath ji has said, I will also request Rahul ji to be covered always by the SPG forces. His life is important to all of us; his security should be taken care of.

Let the House condemn the incident unanimously.
