NEW DELHI: Union parliamentary affairs minister Pralhad Joshi on Wednesday said that Congress is a divided house and will remain a divided house.

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, who is on a visit to Karnataka, told party leaders Tuesday night that they should fight the forthcoming assembly polls in the state unitedly and should refrain from speaking about the party’s internal matters in the media.

“Rahul Gandhi asked them to contest unitedly. It means they are not united today and will not unite in future too,” Joshi said.

A video of TMC MP Mahua Moitra has gone viral in which she could be seen hiding her handbag during a discussion on price rise in the House. The cost of the bag is reported to be ₹2 lakhs.

Responding to the viral video, Joshi said everyone knows about everyone’s bag and baggage. “Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, this government is working for the welfare of the people. On the contrary, hoards of cash are being recovered from West Bengal leader and his aide,” he said.

None of the Opposition MPs participated in today’s Tiranga Bike Rally. Joshi said that all the MPs were requested to participate in the rally. “Everyone was requested to participate…it was a completely non-political programme and Vice-President had flagged it off,” the minister said.
