Addressing the Lok Sabha on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his reply to the debate on President's Motion of Thanks, responded to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's 'Danda' Attack. While PM Modi was responding to the Danda remark, the entire Lok Sabha erupted with the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister in his response had said, "I heard a Congress leader say yesterday that youth will hit Modi with sticks in 6 months. I have decided that I will increase my frequency of 'Surya Namaskar' so that my back becomes so strong that it can bear the hit of so many sticks."
After the Prime Minister's remark, the entire Opposition, including Congress leader Rahul Gandhi rose to criticise the Prime Minister. PM Modi responded to this interruption with a witty response, he said, "I was speaking for the last 30-40 minutes but it took this long for the current to reach there. Many tube lights are like this."
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi made the contentious remark in his campaign rally for the Delhi Assembly election on Wednesday. He claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would not be able to step out of his house after some months as the young people of the country were extremely angry with him. Furthermore, he predicted that the youth would beat the PM with sticks and make him understand the importance of providing jobs.
“Narendra Modi is giving speeches right now but he won’t be able to leave his home after 7-8 months. The young people of India will hit him with sticks and make him understand that India cannot progress without giving jobs to the young people,” Rahul Gandhi said.
