New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi attacked the 10-year UPA reign, claiming it had “bled the country dry,” in a speech to the Lok Sabha one day after Rahul Gandhi attacked his administration. In response to the President’s speech during the Motion of Thanks in Parliament, he stated that “the UPA’s trademark was to convert every opportunity into a crisis.” He added that the years 2004 to 2014 were marked by fraud and violence. The 140 crore people of the nation were also his “shield,” he said, even though the Congress might believe that the best course of action is to “abuse PM Modi.”
The opposition, according to the PM, is “immersed in despair” and blind to the advancements the nation is making. “Why else wouldn’t it be the case?” because over the ten-year period from 2004 to 2014, “he stated, opening the door for one of his most vehement criticisms of Congress.”
“Inflation was strong from 2004 through 2014, prior to that year.” Since Independence, that decade had seen the highest corruption. During the UPA’s 10-year administration, terrorism engulfed the whole nation, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Violence was present over the whole area, from Jammu and Kashmir to the northeast. India was so unprepared to be heard during those ten years on the international stage. “The UPA seized every opportunity between 2004 and 2014 and turned them into crises,” PM Modi said as the Treasury benches erupted in loud applause.
He made fun of the opposition’s profound divisions while implying that corruption throughout those ten years had put it under the scrutiny of the government’s investigative institutions.
He said that the Enforcement Directorate had accomplished what the electorate had failed to do: “ED has gathered all opposition parties together on one platform.”
He continued in an ironic allusion to Rahul Gandhi’s critique yesterday, saying that during the last nine years, obsessive critics had replaced productive ones. “Those who feel that attacking Modi would solve their issues,” he said.
PM Modi clarified the aim by stating, “Yesterday in the Parliament there was a discussion on Harvard again. “According to the Congress, Harvard will use India’s ruin as a case study. However, Harvard recently completed significant research. The Congress Party in India: Rise and Fall was the subject. “In the future, Harvard will not be the only university studying how Congress was destroyed; many other universities across the world will as well,” he added.
In a damning study by US-based short-seller Hindenburg Research, which alleged stock manipulation and accounting fraud by the group, Rahul Gandhi accused the Prime Minister of having connections to billionaire Gautam Adani, whose firms are in the news.
He suggested that Harvard University concentrate on the issue. In his maiden speech in the Lok Sabha following his Bharat Jodo Yatra, Mr. Gandhi declared, “Harvard University should examine the interaction between politics and business; India is a case study, and the Prime Minister should be granted a gold medal for this.”
The BJP claimed that it was obvious that Mr. Gandhi would make Gautam Adani the centerpiece of the Congress’ election campaign, and that it would fail similarly to their attack on the Rafale.
“You feel irritated. “However, what can we do if voters don’t choose your party?” Ravi Shankar Prasad, a prominent BJP leader and former Union Minister, remarked.
