Give me a free press, institutions that are free & Government will not last: Rahul

Give me a free press, institutions that are free & Government will not last: Rahul

Patiala/New Delhi, Oct 6 (UNI) Terming as 'incorrect' the statement that a weak opposition in the country has led to the BJP government at the Centre doing everything they can, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that actually the institutions in India, including the media, had been captured, which is why such an impression has been created.

Addressing a press conference here, Rahul Gandhi said, 'the opposition in any country functions within a framework. What is that framework? The framework is the press, the framework is the judicial system. The framework is our institutions that protect the voice of the people, this is the framework. That entire framework has been captured.

The entire architecture of giving voice to the people of India has been captured and controlled by the BJP, So, if the entire architecture of institutional architecture is captured, then to say the opposition is weak and that’s not really a correct statement. Give me a free press, give me institutions that are free and the Government will not last, I don’t have that.'

Alleging that media in the country was not acting in a free and fair manner, Rahul Gandhi said, 'at the certain level, frankly you are also not doing your job and if it’s Okay for you to blame the opposition and say that the opposition is weak but, my friend you are also walking into slavery. You are also walking into a place, where you will become very uncomfortable.

Today, it is quite amazing, I don’t think there is any other country in the world today, wherein another country can occupy 12 hundred square kilometers of its land and the media says nothing. I don’t think, there is any other country. Even you know the weakest country, they will make a noise in India, they don’t make a noise. The whole things captured.'
