PM Modi Parliament Speech Updates: You Wasted All Your Time Singing Paeans To One Family Says PM Narendra Modi

Written By Malini Chatterji | Mumbai | Published:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the opposition Congress, saying India was paying for the “sins” of the party that had ruled the country for most of its independent history. He also accused the Congress of dividing the nation for its own electoral gains.

PM Modi said:

“You wasted all your time singing paeans to one family. You forgot India’s history and you put all your energy to ensure that the country remembered only one family…if you had worked with some responsibility, the people of this country were capable enough of taking India to new heights."

Rahul Gandhi later while addressing the media said that the PM can talk against the Congress party at a public meeting, but not in Parliament where he needs to answer questions posed to him by the country. 

“He is right in talking about the Congress party, but this is not the place to raise it. You can raise this issue at a public meeting, but not here. “Here, you have to answer to the country. You are not to make accusations here.”
