PM Modi to speak in Lok Sabha today after Rahul Gandhi’s fiery attack – N.F Times

New Delhi: A day after Rahul Gandhi’s fiery maiden speech as the Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to speak in the lower House of Parliament on Tuesday, June 2. Modi will issue his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in the Lok Sabha.

Before his speech in the Parliament, Modi will address the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) parliamentary party meeting at 9:30am. This will be his first address to the ruling bloc’s MPs after winning his third term in office.

Modi’s reply will come a day after Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi’s multi-pronged attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over its remarks during the Lok Sabha elections, NEET paper lead allegations and the Agnipath scheme.

Claiming that an Agniveer is not called a ‘martyr’, Rahul Gandhi said in the Lok Sabha on Monday, “One Agniveer lost his life in a landmine blast but he is not called a ‘martyr’… ‘Agniveer’ is a use and throw labourer.”

During his reply, Gandhi teamed the Hindu symbol ‘Abhayamudra’ which gestures fearlessness, reassurance and safety, as the symbol of the Congress party, and attacked the BJP for “only talking about violence, hate.”

“Abhayamudra is the symbol of the Congress…The Abhayamudra is the gesture of fearlessness, is the gesture of reassurance and safety, which dispels fear and accords divine protection and bliss in Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism and other Indian religions…All our great men have spoken about non-violence and finishing fear…But, those who call themselves Hindu only talk about violence, hatred, untruth…Aap Hindu ho hi nahi,” the Congress leader said.
