The Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday slammed the oppositions in Lok Sabha by accusing them for dividing the country.
The PM was reply to the debate on the motion of thanks to the President’s address in the Lok Sabha.
Amid chants from the opposition, ‘stop giving false hopes, stop giving false speech’, PM also said, addressing Congress and the glorification of the Gandhi parivar “Despite you have divided Bharat Mata, we stood by you. You have ruled when you had almost no one as opposition to fight with.
Adding further to it, he also said that “You spent your entire time to glorify one family. You spent your entire energy to make the country remember just Gandhi family. If your intentions were pure and right, this country would have been much ahead of where it is now."
“Democracy was never Congress or Nehru's charity. Rather it's in our blood, our culture," PM stated.
He also said “Look who is talking about democracy? Your PM Rajiv Gandhi had humiliated a Dali CM of your own party. Please don't teach us lessons on democracy."
In a direct attack to Congress party, PM also raised his voice and said that had Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel been our first Prime Minister, ‘entire Kashmir would have been ours.’
The BJP has issued a whip asking its members to be present in the House today and tomorrow, as the government may introduce some important bill on Thursday in the Lok Sabha where the ruling NDA has a big majority.
The debate on the motion of thanks to President Ram Nath Kovind's address to the joint sitting of the two Houses of Parliament on the opening day of the Budget Session began Tuesday. It was initiated by the BJP's chief whip Rakesh Singh.
