PM Modi tears into Congress in Lok Sabha address, says “2004 to 2014 Was ‘Blackout Era’…mired in scams”
On Wednesday Prime Minister Narendra Modi replied to the motion of thanks on the President’s address to Parliament.
While addressing the Lok Sabha, PM Modi highlighted the condition of neighboring countries, that are struggling due to the pandemic, war, and economic inflation.
He said, “The world is suffering through inflation, hunger, unemployment, and disaster. Even in such adverse circumstances, India is performing exceptionally and has emerged as the 5th largest economy in the world. There is a high hope, positivity, and dependency on India in the world.”
PM Modi also highlighted that in the time of pandemic and global unrest, India has got the opportunity to host the G20 Summit which the chief and delegates of several countries will attend.
“It’s a matter of pride for the country and 140 crore people. But I think, that some people are unhappy India is achieving milestones on the global stage,” he added.
PM Modi also pointed out that the decade, 2004 – 2014, was a decade of scams in the history of independence. “For ten years, the series of terrorist attacks continued in every corner of India. Every citizen was vulnerable. In 10 years, from Kashmir to the Northeast, the country was a victim of violence. Before 2014 will be known as the ‘Lost Decade’ and the decade of 2030 will now be known as the ‘India Decade’,” He added.
The Prime Minister asserted that in the decade of UPA rule, India’s voice was so weak on global forums that the world was not ready to listen.
He further said, “UPA became synonymous with converting opportunities into trouble. When IT was emerging, these people remained involved in the 2G scam and during the civil nuclear deal, they were busy with Cash-for-Vote.”
PM Modi was wearing a jacket made from recycled plastic bottles giving a message about sustainability. Earlier, on Monday PM Modi had launched the uniforms made from recycled plastic at the India Energy Week 2023 in Bengaluru. He laid emphasis on initiatives of recycling plastic bottles into uniforms which will strengthen Mission LiFE.
Earlier, on Tuesday the opposition led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked the Central government and PM Modi.
While speaking in the Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi raked up the Adani controversy. He alleged that the Central government was favoring only one corporate, Adani Group, ‘who gets all the contracts, including the overseas ones’.
