New Delhi: In the Lok Sabha, PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday (February 8) lashed out at the old Congress government. Describing the UPA government as a decade of scams, he said that Congress turned every opportunity into a disaster. The special thing is that on one hand, where PM Modi was constantly targeting Congress. At the same time, his 'thank you' to Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor also made headlines. As per reports, several Congress MPs staged a walkout during PM Modi's address. After this, when MPs from opposition parties returned to the House, Tharoor was the first to return. Due to this PM Modi said in the middle of his speech 'Thank you Shashi ji'. Now just after PM Modi thanked the noise of BJP MPs started from behind, where they were saying, 'Congress has been divided.'
Congress MP Tharoor also praised PM Modi's speech. He said, 'The Prime Minister gave a good speech, but he did not answer any question asked by the opposition.' Tharoor said, 'Apart from this, the Prime Minister's attack on the Congress regarding the terror attacks during the UPA regime is not correct. They were not attacks on Congress but on India. We did not politicize Pulwama, Uri, Pathankot, or Sagrota. Narendra Modi ji speaks for the country. The special thing is that Tharoor's visit to Kerala was in the headlines. It was said that Tharoor was increasing activism in the politics of the state. There was speculation that this had stirred up many big leaders of Congress. Also, his programs were also canceled.
At the same time, PM Modi said in his address that the UPA government's period from 2004 to 2014 has been the decade of the most scams in the history of independence and during these ten years of the UPA government, the people of India used to feel unsafe in every corner from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. The Prime Minister attacked the opposition, including Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, in the Lok Sabha through a few lines of poems by noted Hindi humorist Kaka Hathrasi and poet Dushyant Kumar. He said, in an apparent reference to Rahul Gandhi's speech in the House on Tuesday, that after the speech of some people, the entire ecosystem, supporters... were jumping and saying happily, Yeh Hui Na Baat!
