‘No One Can Claim to Have Stature to Run Down the Country’

New Delhi: Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday said “some of our own people” were engaged in the orchestration of a campaign to run down India’s achievements and asserted that nationalist Indians cannot allow anyone to tarnish its functional democracy.

“We cannot allow our pudding to be spoiled by some who cannot see the growth story of this country,” he said, amid a political row over Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s “democracy under attack” remarks in the UK.

Dhankhar said the politicians must play their politics and must have full freedom, “but when it comes to the nation, when it comes to constitutionalism, when it comes to working of institutions, I cannot observe silence.” “We cannot allow as committed nationalist Indians, anyone to taint, tarnish, damage our functional democracy, our institutions, our Parliament,” he said without naming anyone.
