Congress leader and Minister for Revenue in Maharashtra Balasaheb Thorat took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 1.5 hour-long speech in Lok Sabha on Thursday. PM Modi was speaking in the Lok Sabha over the discussion on Motion of Thanks to the President's address.
Taking to his Twitter, Thorat slammed PM Modi for only criticising Congress and not addressing serious issues faced by the country, citing unemployment and falling economy.
Rather than addressing issues that are faced by the country, PM @narendramodi_in criticised the @INCIndia opposition parties &Nehru in his 1.5 hrs long speech,but issues like generation of jobs,economy&problems in the agricultural sector were completely ignored#GetWellSoonModi— Balasaheb Thorat (@bb_thorat) February 6, 2020
PM Narendra Modi has patted himself on the back in the long speech that he gave, but he did not say a single word on issues like unemployment and the falling economy.— Balasaheb Thorat (@bb_thorat) February 6, 2020
Modi has promised jobs for 2 cr youth every year, what happened to that? Where are the jobs?#GetWellSoonModi
Addressing the Lok Sabha on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack at the Congress and asked the latter to get a better knowledge of the Constitution. There has been a constant war of words between BJP and Congress, where the latter has accused the Narendra Modi-led government of disrespecting the Constitution, over the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act.
"Who brought the Emergency? Who trampled over the Judiciary? Who has brought the most amendments to the Constitution? Who imposed Article 356 the most? Those who did the above, need to get a deeper knowledge of our Constitution, said PM Modi. Further attacking the Congress, PM Modi added that "Congress should say this 'save Constitution' 100 times in a day."
PM also gave a befitting response to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's "Danda remark." He said: "I was hearing the remark made by one of the Congress leaders that I will be lathi-charged within few months. I have been "Gaali proof" after hearing so much abuse. Now, I will do Surya Namaskar for six months and toughen myself up to bear the blows. I am humbled that they have announced it beforehand so now I will exercise and make myself fit for it."
