Of a devil quoting the scriptures....

Faced with Congress criticism of the Narendra Modi government over imposition of President's rule in Uttarakhand, BJP reeled out figures to charge the opposition party with dismissing 91 non-Congress governments when it was in power. “Congress and its supporters dismissed 91 non-congress governments, and are now crying foul. It's like devil quoting the scriptures. When you do it, you are a saviour of democracy and when we do it out of constitutional necessity, we are murderers of democracy ,“ Union minister Venkaiah Naidu said.
He pointed out President's rule was imposed “50 times during Indira Gandhi's regime, 11 times during P V Narasimha Rao's regime, 10 times during Manmohan Singh's regime and seven times during Jawaharlal Nehru's regime“.
BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said the party would file legal proceedings against unseated CM Harish Rawat for allegedly offering money to rebel Congress MLAs in order to save his government.
