New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday replied to the debate on the Motion of Thanks to President’s Address in the Rajya Sabha, reported news agency ANI.
Modi while addressing Rajya Sabha criticised Congress party on a number of issues.
Modi alleged that it was due to the Congress that the country had to face Emergency, witness the massacre of Sikhs and exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, and deal with casteism.
“Had Congress not been there, there would’ve been no massacre of Sikhs; Punjab wouldn’t have burnt in flames of terrorism for years, Kashmiri Pandits need not have left Kashmir. Had Congress not been there, there would’ve been no incident of daughters being thrown in ‘tandoor’,” the PM said, ruing the years when the country was ruled by the Congress.
Modi said the Congress is creating hurdles in development.
