As the Prime Minister began his speech in the Rajya Sabha, opposition members rushed to the center of the House and started raising slogans. However, PM Modi continued his speech even in the midst of this sloganeering and noise. He said- ‘The country is seeing that one person is overshadowing many people. Arey, people have to change even to raise slogans. I have been speaking alone for an hour and have not stopped. They don’t have courage, they are looking for a way to escape.
Amid the uproar, the Prime Minister continued the speech. During this, the PM also taunted the Gandhi family regarding the Nehru surname. The PM said, ‘If Nehru ji’s name did not figure in any program, then some people would have got goosebumps. The blood used to get hot. The Prime Minister said, ‘I do not understand that if Nehru was great then why no one in his family has the surname Nehru? What a shame to have Nehru surname. Such a big man is not acceptable to you and your family… and you ask for our account.
States also have to be disciplined
PM Modi said- ‘States will also have to be disciplined for the economic health of the country. Only then the states will also be able to take advantage of the journey of development. You didn’t pay attention to those who dream of two breads. You didn’t see social justice, we saw it. We took steps to provide opportunities. Let us walk with the determination to fulfill the dreams of a free India.
The country is not the fiefdom of one family
The PM further said, ‘Some people have to understand that the age-old country is a country of the common man’s sweat and generations-old traditions. The family does not have any property. We have given Khel Ratna in the name of Dhyanchand. The islands of Andaman were named after Subhash Chandra Bose, Param Vir Chakra winners. The peak of the Himalayas has been made Everest. We named islands after Param Vir Chakra winners.
