Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday addressed the Lok Sabha to reply to the debate on the motion of thanks to the President Kovind's budget session address. In his speech, PM Modi launched a full frontal attack on the Congress and other Opposition parties over an array of issues. In a sharp criticism of the UPA government, PM Modi shows the mirror to the Congress party on the developments of the NDA government in the past 55 months as against the negligence and alienated growth in the 55 years of the UPA governance.
Here's what Republic's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami had to say on the matter:
"Narendra Modi is enjoying the fact that the opposition has laid out a battle that easily is to his advantage. Rahul and Priyanka Vadra have a bigger problem to handle than the dark deeds and corruption of Robert Vadra. And that problem for them is called Narendra Modi. Modi’s political confidence today and his communication skills are at a high. His confident comparison between 55 years and 55 months is proof that he believes in his track record. And today, Rahul, Sonia and Priyanka Gandhi have no issue to go to the people with except the one issue that Modi would want them to go to the people with— which is to remove Modi. Modi is, therefore, the opposition’s greatest weakness and the BJP’s greatest strength and unless in the next 8 weeks the Mahagatbandhan discovers an issue bigger than Modi, then the Prime Minister seems unstoppable. At least for now."
In his speech, PM Modi took a jibe at the Mahagathbandhan by putting a contrast between a government of alliance and a government of full-majority.
He said, "In 2014, after 30 years the people of this country choose a government with a full majority, and the country has witnessed what happens when a government of 'milawat' (mixed) is in power and now a maha-milawat government (massive-adulteration) is going to come."
