New Delhi [India], Dec. 14 (ANI): Calling Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi 'mentally unstable' over his remarks about having personal information about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's involvement in corruption, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said the former was suffering from an 'attention seeking disorder'. Launching a scratching attack, BJP leader Shrikant Sharma told ANI that the kind of questions Gandhi is raising, he needed 'medical attention'. "I think he has lost his mental stability. We want to challenge Rahul Gandhi. Why are you running away from parliament. From the very beginning, the government is saying it is ready for any kind of debate. If he has any evidence, he should put that forward in parliament. He doesn't want the parliament to run because he has no facts. To speak inside parliament is different and to speak outside is different. Rahul Gandhi is suffering from 'attention seeking disorder' and if in this age also he is suffering from this disorder, then he should seek treatment," he added. Toeing the same sentiments, another BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said allegations levelled against Prime Minister Modi by Rahul Gandhi will not have any impact on anyone. "The Congress is scared of getting exposed. Prime Minister Modi has launched a scheme to fight black money and people are supporting it. Congress tried its best to influence people against the government but they didn't success. Now, Rahul Gandhi is saying that if he speaks, there will be an earthquake. What can be more hilarious that him saying that Prime Minister Modi is scared of him," he told ANI. He further said if Rahul Gandhi has any evidence against Prime Minister Modi then he should bring it forward. "But they are not allowing the parliament to function and putting that blame on the prime minister that he is not allowing him to speak. The party who did corruption of crores in their regime now raising question on us, it is not going to have any impact on anyone. People know that they are themselves running away from parliament," he added. Gandhi today said that Prime Minister Modi is terrified him as he would reveal all of his wrong doings. "I have already said before the Prime Minister is personally terrified of me being allowed to open my mouth inside the Lok Sabha, because I have information on the PM that is going to explode his balloon," said Rahul Gandhi. Reiterating that the opposition has always been ready for discussion, Gandhi alleged that the government of not having a proper debate. "For the last month, we have been trying to hold a discussion in the parliament house. We have discussed with the speaker to allow a discussion dispensing all rules. Pretty much, unconditionally, we are ready to have a discussion, but the governmentt is not interested in having a discussion," he said. Criticising the Prime Minister's move to demonetise high-denomination notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000, Gandhi said the Prime Minister personally took the decision. "He has taken a decision against the poor people of the country. He has destroyed million lives and he is answerable. He has personally taken this decision," said Congress vice-president. Demanding an explanation from the Prime Minister, Rahul Gandhi asked to let opposition have a say in Lok Sabha. On December 9, Rahul Gandhi came up with another such bombarding statement saying that if he would speak on demonetisation in parliament, then the ruling regime would be hit by an "earthquake." (ANI)
