PM Modi refers to Rahul Gandhi’s ‘unwanted hug’ at UP rally in Shahjahanpur
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday took a dig at the ‘Rahul Ki Jhapi’ he received in the Parliament, saying it was a result of the opposition’s lack of reason for their no-confidence motion against his government.
“We asked the reasons for their no confidence but when they failed to give it they ended up giving an unwanted hug,” Modi said, referring to Gandhi’s embrace during a debate on the no-confidence motion moved by TDP in Lok Sabha and supported by various opposition parties.
The coming together of several parties against the BJP will be an opportunity as they were running after the prime minister’s chair, ignoring the poor, youth and farmers.
“If one dal (party) is added to another dal, then it becomes dal-dal (marshy land) which is favourable for ‘kamal’ to blossom,” he said.
Accusing Congress of not having the will to help farmers, Modi listed the key decisions taken by his government for welfare of farmers and criticised the parties who ruled in the past for lacking pro-farmer intentions.
