Rajnath Singh responded to the Congress MP’s statement and said, “Rahul Gandhi, a Lok Sabha member, went to London and tried to ‘discredit’ India, claiming that the country’s democratic structure is entirely disintegrating. He also stated that foreign countries should intervene to defend India’s democracy. He attempted to “seriously wound” India’s honor and prestige.”
