Replying to the Motion of Thanks in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi maintained a firm stance against the principal opposition Congress. Like his speech in Lok Sabha on March 3, Modi targeted Congress and blamed them for the lack of development of the country in the previous UPA regime.
A day after Rahul Gandhi said his intervention helped the Centre roll back the tax on EPF withdrawals, Modi took a jibe at the Congress Vice President saying some people work and others take credit. "There are two kinds of people in the world, one who work and others who take credit," Modi said.
Modi claimed the Congress was only working to criticise the central government. "Congress is looking for Centre's mistakes through microscope. Had you even used binoculars instead of microscope during your regime, we would not have had to work so much," he asserted.
Quoting renowned poet Nida Fazli, he attacked the opposition saying, "- सफ़र में धूप तो होगी, जो चल सको तो चलो, सभी हैं भीड़ में, तुम भी निकल सको तो चलो,"
Calling Congress lucky, he said the party never gets a bad name in media reports. "When we criticise the Congress, it is reported as - criticism of Opposition, not criticism of Congress. Congress never gets a bad name," he said.
