Congress is not the Nation, it’s a political party: Modi in Rajya Sabha

PM Modi was replying to the ‘Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address’ in which he also called for constructive suggestion from the Opposition towards the ultimate goal of nation-building. “Congress is in the habit of mocking everything. Stop mocking India’s mandate. Let us come together, we welcome good suggestions from everyone.”

Expressing dismay over the recent mob lynching incident in Jharkhand, PM Modi said that while the death was extremely unfortunate, it was incorrect to slam the entire state for it. “Some of their leaders said that Jharkhand has become the adda of mob violence. In this way, they will never be able to see the good that also exists. Law must and will take its course. The entire country stands against mob lynching,” he said, adding that he is also saddened by the death of children in Bihar due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome.

The attacks against Congress, however, formed the bulk of  PM Modi’s speech in Rajya Sabha – his second – and equally intense – attack in as many days. In Lok Sabha on Tuesday, he had accused the party of being totally cut off from the roots. “It is tough to cure the disease of 70 years in five years,” he had said.
