PM Modi’s Lok Sabha pitch mocks Congress
In his penultimate speech in the 16th Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi very strongly fortified his government’s achievements and instigated an attack on the Congress party and the Opposition, pitching his tenure as “55 months of service to the nation” against “55 years of enjoyment of power of the Congress”
In his fitting reply to the debate on the motion of thanks to President Ram Nath Kovind’s address to the Parliament, PM Modi used his hour-long speech to reach out to key constituencies — from first-time voters who will cast their ballot for the first time in the upcoming general election this summer, the middle class, traders, the poor, and farmers. He listed out major successes and historic initiatives undertaken by his government.
He also scoffed at the Congress on several occasions and fielded the opposition’s charges on what have emerged as key national; issues – unemployment, farm crises and the Rafale fighter jet deal.
In an belligerent speech, PM Modi sought to the counter charges leveled by the Congress and made it known that in an election year, “l;eaders are bound by a compulsion to make all kinds of charges”. Modi wanted to play up his humble beginnings and status as an outsider in Delhi to attack the Congress.
“The origin of the problem is that a poor man who has never seen the streets of Delhi has done so much, that they can’t digest. The Congress has been tied to power.“This intoxication is creating a problem.”
He preferred to call emerging and newfound Opposition unity as “maha-milawat gathbandan” or an “adulterated alliance”. He said Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation, wanted the Congress split up after Independence. It was he who wanted a Congress-mukt Bharat (Congress-free India).
“I’m just fulfilling that dream of his,” concluded PM Modi.
