PM Modi: In response to the Lok Sabha’s discussion of the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday unleashed a vicious attack on the Congress party.
Opposition’s Courage in Elections
“I see that many of you (Opposition) have even lost the courage to contest elections. Some seats were changed last time too, I have heard that many people are looking to change their seats this time as well. I have also heard that many people now want to go to Rajya Sabha instead of Lok Sabha. They are looking for their paths by assessing the situation,” he said.
PM Modi said in the Parliament, “Ek hi product baar-baar launch karne ke chakkar mein, Congress ki dukaan pr tala lagne ki naubat aa gayi hai…” He added that, “Congress has promoted a ‘cancel culture’ in the Parliament. They tried to cancel ‘make in India’ and other beneficial schemes.’”
