Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday (12 August) slammed the Opposition, stating that the recent defeat of the no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha was a strong response to those spreading negativity across the nation.

"You've seen that we defeated the no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition in the Parliament and gave a befitting reply to those spreading negativity in the entire nation," PM Modi said while addressing BJP’s Kshetriya Panchayati Raj Parishad in West Bengal, via video conferencing.

He accused the Opposition of walking out before the vote because they were afraid it would reveal the fractures in their alliance.

“The members of the opposition left Parliament mid-way. The truth is that they were scared of voting on the no-confidence motion,” he said, reports Indian Express.

The no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition alliance was defeated in the Lok Sabha on Thursday after the Opposition parties walked out during PM Modi's speech. In his speech, PM Modi pledged to bring peace to Manipur as soon as possible.

In his speech to BJP workers in Kolkata, PM Modi asserted that the Opposition's intention was not to discuss the Manipur issue in Parliament, but rather to exploit it for political gains.
