On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi responded to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in the Lok Sabha. In his speech, PM Modi slammed the Congress, claiming that he was confident that they had decided to remain in the Opposition for an extended period.
Here are the key quotes from Prime Minister Modi’s address in the Lok Sabha.
- When the President came to this new Parliament building to address all of us, Sengol led the entire procession with pride and respect, and we were walking behind him. When we become a witness to the reflection of that holy moment of India’s freedom in this new tradition in the new Parliament building, the glory of democracy rises.
- I respect the Opposition’s determination to be in opposition for a long time…The way you sat here (in government) for decades is the same way you intend to sit there (in opposition). The public will undoubtedly give you its blessing
- I perceive that many of you (the opposition) have lost the confidence to run in elections. Some seats were moved last time, and I’ve heard that many others want to alter their seats this time as well. I’ve also heard that many people now prefer to attend Rajya Sabha rather than Lok Sabha. They are reviewing the issue to determine their next steps.
- The opposition leaders have changed, but they continue to say the same things. It’s election season, and you should have worked a little more, introduced something fresh, and delivered a message to voters. Unfortunately, you failed badly. Allow me to teach you this very thing. The Congress party is accountable for the current state of the opposition. Congress has the potential to become an effective opposition. However, they have failed to discharge their responsibilities during the last ten years.
