New Delhi: After his party boycotted the inauguration of the new Parliament building, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday said democracy is not just about buildings but functions with the voice of people.
He also attacked the government over the ”forcible” removal and ”manhandling” of wrestlers protesting at the Jantar Mantar when they were trying to march towards Parliament.
”The right to inaugurate the new Parliament was snatched from the President. Women players were beaten up on the streets with dictatorial force,” he alleged in a tweet in Hindi.
