PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday gave a speech in the Parliament on the reply to the 'Motion Of Thanks On the President's Address' in the Lok Sabha. He took a dig at the previous Congress for their history which included the Emergency and allegations and cases of corruption.
"We will continue our fight against corruption. We are being criticised that those who are accused of corruption are not in jail. This is not an Emergency that we put people in jail, this is democracy. That job belongs to the Judiciary and we follow the law. And if people are getting bail, let them enjoy it. Work should not be done with a feeling of vengeance. But we will continue to work against corruption. We will work with honesty. And the country has given us so much we need not use corrupt means," he said.
PM Modi spoke at length about the period of Emergency.

He also spoke the 2019 mandate in Lok Sabha elections saying that it was a result after the citizen tested our work.
"But 2019 mandate is a result of our work. During these 5 years, citizens have seen each and every work of ours, tested us, and based on that they voted for us. This is a very big strength of democracy. No matter who is there, who wins or loses, for everyone 2019 mandate has shown that it is the result of hard work of the government in these five years.
