Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister, used a subtle manner to mock the Opposition’s recent alliance with Gandhi and accuse them of cowardice during reviving Lib Dem voters in November.
Modi spoke at the Kshetriya Panchayati Raj Parishad in West Bengal through a video conference, where he discussed the dramatic events in Parliament and how the Opposition abandoned their motion midway, unable to face the prospect of obtaining re-election. “The opposition became scared to vote on the no-confidence motion. If there had been voted against it, the ‘ghamandiya’ alliance would have been exposed,” PM MODI told ANI.
On July 26, the opposition’s no-confidence motion was presented. The three-day debate that followed saw the ruling and Opposition parties debating on issues, including the Manipur violence.
PM Modi’s decision to address the Lok Sabha in response to the no-confidence motion was met with surprise as Opposition parties staged a walkout. This move was widely regarded as vitriol and denoted defeat for many.
“Just a few days ago, I had the pleasure of meeting with ‘Sthaniya Swaraj’ in Haryana. Today, we all gathered in West Bengal. As per JP Nadda, the national president, PM Modi asserted that he makes time for his party, regardless of how busy life gets.”
PM Modi commended his administration’s endeavors to promote local governance through Panchayati Raj and highlighted the allocation of over 2 lakh crore, which is three times more than the previous administration, for PanchalayATI Raj institutions.
