Parliament Special Session: The first day of the special session of the Parliament took a dramatic turn after the opposition launched a blistering attack on the ruling BJP over the G20 Summit. Stepping up an attack on PM Modi and his party, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge during his 65-minute-long address referred G20 Summit as the “G2 Summit”. He later asserted that “lotus” covered the zero in the G20 Summit.
Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge while addressing the first day of the special session of the Parliament said “We are busy talking about G-2 but not discussing other issues like inflation and unemployment.”
Dhankar corrected Kharge
To which, Jagdeep Dhankhar, the Chairman of Rajya Sabha, corrected him and said it was “G20 Summit” and not “G2 Summit”.
In reply, Kharge said that, “Lotus covered the zero.” (Lotus is the election symbol of BJP)
