“Mr. Gandhi, Democracy is not in peril, but the Congress Party has been brought to political perish by the people of India for this very behaviour that you exhibited against the nation overseas", Union minister Smriti Irani said at a briefing yesterday.

His cabinet colleague Anurag Thakur has minced no words in attacking the Congress leader. "No matter how much help he (Gandhi) seeks from foreign friends, foreign newspapers and channels, foreign soil, foreigners can never dominate India. You have to vote here, not in England or America. "Rahul Gandhi should stop Cambridge cries and London lies and come back to Parliament and apologise to Parliament," the minister said.

However, the Congress continues to remain defiant and has made it clear that Rahul Gandhi will not apologise. “It's their conspiracy to not let the Parliament run and ignore our demand for a JPC probe in the Adani issue. They don't want to discuss issues of unemployment & inflation. Earlier on numerous occasions, Modi Ji spoke against India abroad. There is no question of apologising”, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said.
