NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday unleashed a scathing attack on Congress in Rajya Sabha and claimed that the grand old party will not be able to win even
in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
The Prime Minister was responding to the Motion of Thanks to President Droupadi Murmu’s address in the Rajya Sabha.
Here are the key quotes from PM Modi‘s speech in Rajya Sabha:
* I could not say it that day but I express my special gratitude to Kharge ji.
I was listening to him with great attention and enjoyment that day. The lack of entertainment that we were missing in the Lok Sabha was fulfilled by him.
* I remember the incident from last year. We used to sit in that building and attempts were made to stifle the voices of the PM of the country. Today too, you have come prepared to not listen. But you can’t suppress my voice. People of the country have strengthened this voice. I too have come prepared this time.
* I’m assured that this party is outdated in terms of thinking, and therefore they have outsourced their work. In no time, such a big party which ruled the country is going downhill.
* Mallikarjun Kharge ji spoke in Rajya Sabha for a long time and I was thinking about how he got the chance to speak for a long time and then I realised that two special commanders were not there so he took advantage of it and I think that Kharge ji must have heard that song ‘Aisa mauka phir kaha milega’.
* Congress ceased large chunks of the country’s land to the enemy but is now giving sermons to us on internal security. Congress does not have a guarantee of its own leaders and policies but is questioning Modi’s guarantees.
* Congress party strangled democracy for power. They dismissed democratically elected governments. Overnight. They put the dignity of democracy behind bars. They shut down the newspaper outlets…This very congress is preaching to us about democracy and federalism.
* Congress remained inspired by the British and continued symbols of slavery for decades. Congress gave such narratives that those following Indian traditions were looked down upon.
