Sitaram Yechury condemns Prime Minister Narendra Modi's fascistic demagoguery
"Prime Minister refuses to answer a single point raised in the debate, destroying accountability to Parliament and people."
Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his remarks on former PM Manmohan Singh, Communist Party of India (Marxist) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said that Prime Minister has destroyed the accountability to Parliament by refusing to answer members.
Sitaram Yechury, who always took a critical stand on the policies of the Modi-led government, has taken to social media to condemn and criticise the comments of Modi.
"Prime Minister refuses to answer a single point raised in the debate, destroying accountability to Parliament and people," Yechury wrote on Facebook on Thursday.
"He has lowered the bar of Parliamentary democracy to near-obscene levels. Fascistic demagoguery is no substitute for accountability," Yechury added.
On Wednesday, Yechury said Modi had no answers to opposition's questions and "personal insults to senior leaders" was his only response to serious issues. He also called the government most "bereham" and "callous" since Independence.
"Rudeness is the weak person's imitation of strength," Yechury wrote on Twitter.
