New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday tore into the Opposition for bringing the no-confidence motion against his government and said they have decided that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will come back with a grand victory — breaking all previous records — in 2024. Responding to the debate on the no-confidence motion, Modi said his government has taken India’s reputation to ‘greater heights’.
“In a way, the Opposition’s no-confidence has always been lucky for us. Today, I can see that you (Opposition) have decided that NDA and BJP will come back in 2024 elections with a grand victory, breaking all previous records, with the blessings of the people,” Prime Minister Modi said.
He also said that India will be among the world’s top three economies when the Opposition will bring the no-confidence motion against his government in 2028.
He also took a swipe at Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and wondered whether he was sidelined in the debate on the no-confidence motion due to a phone call from Kolkata. Modi said the previous motions in 1999, 2003 and 2018 were led by the then opposition leaders – Sharad Pawar, Sonia Gandhi, and Mallikarjun Kharge respectively.
“But, what happened this time? Adhirbabu did not get that opportunity. He was fielded as a speaker only after (Home Minister) Amit Shah made a case for him,” he said.
“I don’t know what your compulsion is? Why was Adhirbabu sidelined? Was it because of a phone call from Kolkata,” Modi said in an apparent reference to Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, a known detractor of Chowdhury.
Modi recalled that Chowdhury was temporarily removed as the leader on the pretext of elections in West Bengal.
The debate on the no-confidence motion was initiated by Congress deputy leader in the Lok Sabha Gaurav Gogoi. On Wednesday, Shah had taken a dig at Chowdhury and offered time from the BJP’s quota for him to speak.
