In a rousing address in the Rajya Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi countered a slogan assault by the opposition to spotlight his government’s array of achievements over the last few years.

PM Modi pointed out that some MPs are bringing House to disrepute in response to ceaseless sloganeering during his reply to the Motion of Thanks on President’s address.

As PM Modi started his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address, the Opposition MPs started raising slogans of “Modi-Adani bhai-bhai” in Rajya Sabha.

But PM Modi warned: “The country carefully hears what is said in this House. Some MPs are bringing disrepute to this House.”

He  further took a jibe at the opposition with a Hindi Shayari: “Keechad uske pas hai, mere pas gulal…jo bhi jiske pas tha usne diya uchaal”.

“I want to tell the Opposition MPs, the more ‘keechad’ (sludge) you will throw at us, the lotus will bloom even more. So, you all have an equal role in making the lotus bloom, and I think all of them for that,” he said.
