Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday replied to motion of thanks on President Kovind's speech in the 17th Lok Sabha. Addressing the Lower House of Parliament, PM Modi launched a sharp attack at the Congress party, extending the Opposition best wishes in their endeavour to "rise high".
In response to remarks made Congress in Lok Sabha, saying that "the party has risen to new heights in the Parliament", PM Modi countered the Opposition and said that they are not connected to their roots while his dream is to stay connected to his roots.
"A lot of good discussions took place here. Some sharp talks also happened. Soem talks happened on the impressions of the elections. Everyone has their agendas here. I don't have to say anything in that matter, however, it was said here that no one can work up to out heights. I can't make that mistake. We don't waste our time to shorten someone else's lines. We invested our time in increasing our growth," PM Modi said in this address.
He further lashed out at the Opposition saying that they have risen to such highs that the people have become negligible to them and the land has become invisible to them.
"I congratulate you on your new heights, because you have gone to such heights, that the land is not visible to you anymore. You have gone to such heights that you have uprooted yourselves from the roots. You have gone to such heights that people are negligible to you now. And it gives me satisfaction to see you rise so much. I extend best wishes that you reach more heights. We don't have any hard feeling with your getting to new heights, it is not our dream to get to new heights. Our dream is to stay connected to the roots. We extend blessing to you, fly high, fly high, fly high," the Prime Minister added.
(Yaha bohot achchi baatein bhi batayi gayi. Kuch teekhi batein bhi batayi gayi. Jyadar chunavi sabhao ki chhaya wali baatein bhi batayi gayi. Har ek ka apna apna ek agenda hota h. Uske liye mujhe kuch kehna bhi nhi h, lekin yaha kaha gaya ki hamari oonchayi ko koi kam nhi kar sakta. Aisi galti hum nhi karte. Hum kisi ki lakeerein choti karne main apne samay barbad nahi karte hai. Humne apni lakeer lambi karne main zindagi laga dete h. Aur aapki oonchayi aapko mubarak ho. Kyunki aap itne oonche chale gaye hai, itne oonche chale gaye ki zameen dikhna band ho gaya hai. Aap itne oonche chale gaye hai ki aap jado se ukhad gaye hai. Aap itne oonche chale gaye hai ki jo zameen par hai wo aapko tuchch dikhta hai. Aur isliye itna ooncha hona mere liye satosh aur anand ki baat hai. Aur meri kaamna hai ki aap aur onache uthe. Hamari aapse oonchai se sambandh main koi spardha hi nhi hai, kyunki hamara sapna ooncha hone ka hai hi nhi. Hamara sapna jado se judne ka hai. Jis spardha main hum nhi h us spardha main hum aapko subhkamna hi denge. Aur oonche, aur oonche, aur oonche jaiye.)
