After heated arguments in the Lok Sabha between the Opposition INDIA bloc and the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), today marked the conclusion of the three-day debate on the no-confidence motion.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the House.
Here are the top highlights from his speech -
1. No Confidence Motion is auspicious for us
Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his address by remarking that the No Confidence motion has been auspicious and a blessing in disguise for the ruling dispensation.
Modi stated, "God is very kind and speaks through some medium... I believe that it's the blessing of God that the opposition has brought this motion. I had said during the no-confidence motion in 2018 that it was not a floor test for us but a floor test for them, and as a result, they lost in the elections..."
2. Opposition not interested in crucial bills
PM Narendra Modi accused the Opposition of not engaging in healthy dialogue in parliament and not paying proper attention to the crucial bills pending in parliament.
3. Expresses Sympathy with Adhir Ranjan Choudhary
PM Modi satirically stated, "A few things in this No Confidence Motion are so strange that they were never heard or seen before, not even imagined... The name of the Leader of the largest Opposition party was not among the speakers... This time, what has become of Adhir ji? His party didn't give him the opportunity to speak... It was your generosity that you allowed him to speak today even when their time slot had concluded. Lekin gud ka gobar kaise karna usmein ye mahir hain... I don't know what your compulsion is, why has Adhir babu been sidelined? Maybe there was a phone call from Kolkata. Congress insults him again & again... Hum Adhir babu ke prati apni poori samvedna vyakt karte hain..."
4. Crucial period in the nation's history
The Prime Minister highlighted that the present time period was crucial and a turning point in India's history and should not be wasted by politicization.
5. Cricketing metaphor to mock Opposition
The Prime Minister used a cricket metaphor to drive home the point regarding the Opposition's dismal performance in the discussion.
6. Whomever the opposition wishes bad, they turn good
PM Narendra Modi says, "Vipaksh ke logon ko ek secret vardaan mila hua hai ki jiska bhi yeh log bura chahenge uska bhala hi hoga.' One such example is standing before you. '20 saal ho gaye kya kuch nahi hua par bhala hi hota gaya..."
The Prime Minister exemplified the trio of the Banking Sector, HAL, LIC with such successful instances.
