Congress files privilege motion against MEA Sushma Swaraj

Though she insisted that she is confirming that now after having solid proofs in the case, her statement evoked sharp criticism from the opposition parties

Amid raging controversy over the killing of 39 Indians in Mosul of Iraq, the Congress spoke of having filed a privilege motion against External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

The privilege motion was filed for “misleading” parliament on the issue.

It need be mentioned that the Minister Swaraj had on Tuesday informed Rajya Sabha that 39 Indians out of 40, who were abducted in Mosul in 2014, were killed.

Though she insisted that she is confirming that now after having solid proofs in the case, her statement evoked sharp criticism from the opposition parties.

The opposition parties along with the grieving families questioned the Central government’s stand for the last four years.

On Thursday, Congress leaders Ambika Soni, Pratap Bajwa and Shamsher Singh Dullo accused the Narendra Modi government of trying to suppress the issue of killing of 39 Indians.
