NEW DELHI(ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday will address the Lok Sabha to reply on the motion of thanks to the President’s address.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday singularly targeted Prime Minister Narendra as he led the opposition attack on government in Lok Sabha, saying a “fair and lovely” scheme had been brought to launder blackmoney and slammed it over JNU and Dalit student Rohith Vemula issue besides the Pakistan policy.
In acerbic remarks on Modi’s style of functioning, the Congress Vice President, while participating in the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address, accused him of not listening to anyone’s opinion including that of his ministers and MPs.
He also ridiculed Modi’s ambitious ‘Make in India’ programme, saying the Prime Minister has “created a ‘babbar sher’ (Asiatic Lion)” in which “clock and wheels are seen moving” and questioned how many jobs have been created.
Hitting back at Rahul, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley raised questions about his knowledge and maturity. Home Minister Rajnath Singh also denied the Congress leader’s claim that he was not kept in the loop before signing a peace pact with Naga insurgent group NSCN-IM.
Meanwhile, Heavy sloganeering by AIADMK members seeking action against P Chidambaram’s son Karti on Aircel-Maxis issue and by Congress MPs over alleged Gujarat land scam led to two adjournments in Rajya Sabha, even as the government said it was ready to discuss the matter raised by AIADMK.
