In an explosive speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha on Wednesday launched a blistering attack against Congress.

While addressing the Lok Sabha in his reply to the Motion of Thanks to the President’s address, the Prime Minister said, “How can one of the leaders say India got a democracy due to Pandit Nehru and the Congress Party? Is this their reading of India's history? What arrogance is this?”

“India did not get democracy due to Pandit Nehru, as Congress wants us to believe. Please look at our rich history. There are many examples of rich democratic traditions that date back centuries ago. Democracy is integral to this nation and is in our culture,” PM Modi said.
