Rahul's style of politics undemocratic: Shah at BJP Parliamentary meet

Posted February 10, 2018

Earlier on Friday, Modi arrived in Jordon and met country's King Abdullah II. Briefing about party's parliamentary meet, according to a leading daily, BJP minister Ananth Kumar said that their party president Amit Shah said Rahul Gandhi's style of politics is undemocratic and therefore he tries to make such kind of disruptions during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech. The Congress party and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had earlier too accused the Modi government of using the Income Tax Department for its "political conspiracies", following searches by the department at multiple properties related to senior minister D K Shivakumar in August previous year. New Delhi is funding an India-Palestinian technology park in Ramallah to help develop IT skills and generate employment. During his visit to Israel previous year, he did not travel to the Palestinian headquarters as is usually the case with visiting leaders.

The presidency announced that president Abbas and his guest, the Indian prime minister, will hold a session of important talks, which will address the latest developments in the political process in the region because of India's worldwide stature, it said.

His visit comes at a time of tensions over President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Modi will also travel to the United Arab Emirates, from where India gets half of its oil, and to Oman, with which India's navy has built close security ties. The UAE committed an investment of $75 billion in India when Modi visited in 2015 and the two sides will be looking to advance that goal, the foreign ministry said.
