Modi not a 'chowkidar', but 'bhagidar': Rahul Gandhi

Jay Panda's resignation accepted: Lok Sabha Speaker

It's not about the math

The French government on Friday issued a statement after Congress president Rahul Gandhi questioned the NDA government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha over the Rafale deal.

During his almost 15 minutes stormy speech that was interrupted several times by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members, Gandhi focused his attack on issues where he felt the NDA government had failed since 2014. The government won the motion by 325 against 126 votes.

Congress Party leader Shashi Tharoor praised Gandhi's "astonishing performance" in parliament. And that too minutes after @HarsimratBadal_ said that Parliament is not for "Munna Bhai's puppy- jhappis", a Twitter user said. I went to Surat where traders told me that they have been the worst affected.

Taking on Rahul Gandhi over his remarks on Rafale, PM Modi said, "They raised Rafale issue and I was surprised..."

Indian Prime Minister Modi maybe a famous hugger during meetings with worldwide dignitaries but he must have not seen this one coming.

An indutrialist under a debt of Rs 35,000 crore was given a contract in the Rafale deal and he was benefitted to the tune of Rs 45,000 crore, the Congress President said, asking Modi to answer if the Cabinet Committee on Security took the decision. "This, I've learnt because of Narendra Modi, the BJP and the RSS", he said. "Women have been killed, exploited in large numbers but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not spoken a word about it", pointed out Gandhi. Mr Gandhi said, referring to a string of mob lynching of Dalits, once called untouchables, and Muslims by Hindu-nationalist vigilante groups.

"The difference between all of us and the prime minister and the president of the BJP is whereas we are okay to lose power, we can see ourselves in being power and out of power, for reasons that everybody knows here, the prime minister and the president of the BJP can simply not afford to lose power". With a central image of the hug, the daily highlighted both the Opposition's complaints as well as the government's responses.

Modi, whose BJP is setting up next year's vote as a presidential-style contest between the experienced prime minister and an untested challenger, is himself known for his bear hugs, embracing leaders such as U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

According to details available with Lok Sabha secretariat, six no-confidence motions were moved in the third and the fourth Lok Sabha, the maximum.

The Congress president also said that while the Union government was ready to waive loans taken by industrialists, it had not provided the same respite to farmers who have repeatedly urged the government to write off farm loans. The Congress and other Opposition camps turned jubilant, even as BJP camps exuded mixed feelings.
