Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman went hammer and tongs against the ‘khandaan’ while addressing the Lok Sabha today (4 January), calling out the Congress party’s sloganeering in the house.
Highlight of the Defence Minister’s speech in the House (via DD News/Youtube):
Visibly upset with the slogans raised in the House questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other ministers of the BJP, she responded saying that, “I don't have a 'khandan' to boast on. PM also comes from a poor background. He has come here from hard work. I have my honour intact. PM has his honour intact. We have all come from normal backgrounds.”
She also took a shot at the Congress President Rahul Gandhi for having winked at the Prime Minister, an act that was condemned by many as conduct unbecoming of the Parliament.
