PM Modi to reply on ‘Motion of Thanks’ in Rajya Sabha today


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister

Narendra Modi

on Wednesday will reply to the

Motion of Thanks

to President Droupadi Murmu’s address in the Rajya Sabha.
Earlier this week, the Prime Minister had responded to the Motion of Thanks to the President’s address in

Lok Sabha

. During his address,

PM Modi

launched an all-out attack on Congress and said that the opposition has lost the courage to contest elections.

PM Modi asserted that BJP will win at least 370 seats while NDA will cross the 400-mark in the Lok Sabha elections as he set the tone for the general election due in April-May.
“Congress is trapped in a cancel culture. They cancel Vande Bharat Trains, Make in India and new Parliament building. They cancel every achievement of India,” the Prime Minister had said.

“This is Modi’s guarantee that India will become the third largest economy in the world after US and China in my third term,” he added.
Meanwhile, the government has decided to extend the ongoing session of Parliament by a day and bring a white paper on the state of economy during the 10 years of UPA government, when the country’s economy was clubbed with the “Fragile Five”, and also use the occasion to showcase its journey since PM Modi took over in 2014, joining three largest economies in the world.

The ongoing session, which commenced on January 31 and was to conclude on February 9, will be functional coming Saturday too, a rare occasion when the two Houses will work on a weekend. The session is the last before the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
In her Interim Budget speech, finance minister

Nirmala Sitharaman

had said the Centre would release a ‘white paper’ comparing the state of the Indian economy before and after 2014.
“The crisis of those years has been overcome, and the economy has been put firmly on a high sustainable growth path with all-round development. It is now appropriate to look at where we were then till 2014 and where we are now, only for the purpose of drawing lessons from the mismanagement of those years. The government will lay a white paper on the table of the House,” Sitharaman had said in her speech on February 1.
