Watch PM Narendra Modi Hits Out At Rahul and Congress In Lok Sabha, Here are the Highlights


Speaking in the Lok Sabha while replying to Motion of thanks to President's address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took a dig at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and the Opposition. PM also responded to criticism at the government's note ban decision and said it was the right step taken at the right time.


Here are the top highlights from PM's speech in Lok Sabha:


  1. "The earthquake finally did happen," Modi took a dig at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's remark- 'main bolunga to bhukamp aa jayega', which was made by him in December during the Winter session declaring that the government didn't want him to make startling revelations that would cause an earthquake.
  2. "Kal bhukamp aa hi gaya. Main soch raha tha dhamki to kaafi din pehle di gayi thi. The reason for last night's earthquake was that dharti maa was upset," said PM. The government is extending all help to the state. We will cooperate fully with the state. Relief teams have already reached there," he added.
  3. "We were ready for discussion, but instead of discussion the opposition was more concerned about giving TV bytes," he said.
  4. "Since the economy was in strong condition, the timing of demonetisation was the best. When can you have an operation? When the body is healthy. The economy was doing well and thus our decision was taken at the right time," Modi said in Lok Sabha. 
  5. "Like Swachh Bharat, the decision on demonetisation is a movement to clean India (from corruption and black money). I am taking such decisions which are hurting big people and because of that I am going to face problems. I am ready for that." he added.
  6. "How can someone see 'SEVA' or any positive virtue in the word SCAM: PM Narendra Modi at Rahul Gandhi's remarks that 'SCAM' to him meant "Seva, Courage, Ability and Modesty".
  7. "Congress feels only one family got Independence for India. I never heard them speak about the role of Chandrasekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh and many other freedom fighters who laid down their lives for the country," Modi said.
  8. "There are many people like me, who could not die for the nation during freedom struggle but we are living for India and serving India. When even Congress was not born, Indian fought for their independence. We do not belong to dog culture. But lotus was even then and even today," PM Modi said attacking Kharge for his statement, 'not even a dog from your house died for the nation'.
  9. "My fight is for the poor and giving the poor their due. This fight will continue. It does not matter how big you are, you will have to give back what belongs to the poor. My fight is for the poor."
  10. "Apne seene par haath rakh kar puchhiye, surgical strike se 24 ghante pehle Raj Netaon ne kaise kaise byaan diye. You are troubled with the surgical strikes.  You cannot bear good work done by others. It is unsettling for you to digest the facts. Deal with it. Think of the country before self sometimes." PM said in Lok Sabha.
