New Delhi: Hitting back at Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who on Tuesday condemned BJP leader Sushma Swaraj's choice of words at a press conference where she said Congress had gained "mota maal" or massive profits in the coal blocks allocations, BJP leaders said that she should first look within.
"We don't need lessons from Sonia. She was the one to use the term 'maut ka saudagar' for Narendra Modi. Was it parliamentary or civil on her part?" asked Rajiv Pratap Rudy.
Venkaiah Naidu said that it was Congress party members who had called NDA leader George Fernandes 'coffin chor' (thief).
"Congress should stop its doublespeak. Why didn't Sonia find those comments of Congress leaders undemocratic where they called George Fernandes 'coffin chor'?" he asked.
The leaders added that the BJP was firm on its stand and would not let Parliament function. "We won't let the House function. We appeal to all parties to join us in this," said Naidu.
