Prime Minister Narendra Modi while delivering his last speech in the Lower House on Wednesday, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, encompassed the achievements of the government and did not leave an opportunity to take a jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
While doing so, PM Modi reminiscing the incident from last year in the Lok Sabha where Rahul Gandhi hugged him, he pointed out how he learned the difference between 'gale milna aur gale padna' (hugging and piling on)
He said, "The first time when I came here I understood the difference between 'gale milna aur gale padna', I had seen it for the first time in the Parliament," leaving the Parliament in splits.
Last year, the Congress president claimed that although the BJP might hate him, he does not reciprocate to the emotion in the same way, and following that walked over to PM Modi and embraced him.
PM Modi during his address acknowledged the contentious Rafale deal saying, "Sometimes paper in the Parliament, planes were flown, big leaders flew the planes but the power of democracy and Lok Sabha is such that no plane would fly to their heights."
He said it in the same day when a report by CAG was tabled earlier in Rajya Sabha that stated that the NDA deal was 2.86% cheaper than the UPA no-deal.
Continuing his attack, PM Modi even acknowledged the "earthquake comment" by Rahul Gandhi.
He said, "We sometimes heard, an earthquake might occur. No earthquake struck in the last five years during the government tenure."
Rahul Gandhi alleged that an "earthquake" might occur if he was permitted to speak in the Parliament.
Summing up the entire address, Prime Minister Modi extended his praises to the government as well as the Opposition for the work accomplished during the five-year tenure of PM Modi.
