Rahul-GandhiNew Delhi (PTI):Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said the National Herald case is “hundred percent political vendetta coming out of  PMO” but he has full faith in the judiciary

“One hundred percent political vendetta. Pure political vendetta coming out of  PMO.  It is their way of doing politics.  Pure 100 per cent vendetta,”  Said Gandhi to the reporters outside the parliament.

Asked about the parliamentary affairs minister M. Venkaiah Naidu’s charge that Congress was using Parliament to threaten judiciary, he said “It is the other way round. Who is threatening judiciary. We all know.”

“I have full faith in judiciary. We will see at the end what comes out. Truth will come out” Rahul added.

Protests by congress members over the alleged politics of vendetta disrupted procedures of both houses in parliament for the second consecutive day.

Protests by the main opposition party disrupted proceedings in the Rajya Sabha for the second consecutive day today, taking toll of Zero Hour and Question Hour with Congress members forcing four adjournments in the first half. Congress members rushed into the Well, shouting slogans like “Tanashahi nahi college, nahi chalegi (dictatorship will not be tolerated).”

Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs sharply said that Congress was insulting the mandate of the people and not willing to allow the passage of key legislations like the Whistle Blowers Protection (Amendment) Bill and the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill . He went on to suggest that the House should not be adjourned.
