‘Today I Will Only Talk About Nehru Ji’ Says PM Modi In Parliament

On Monday, prime minister Narendra Modi hit out at the Congress during the ongoing budget session of the Parliament. Invoking the name of India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, PM Modi said: “You keep complaining that I don’t take the name of Nehru ji enough. Today I will only talk about Nehru ji. Enjoy,” “Your leader will also say maza aa gaya,” added the PM. Earlier, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had criticised the centre’s economic policies. Reacting on the matter, PM Modi said: “Pandit Nehru said from the Red Fort that sometimes war in Korea can impact us and so the price of commodities increase in India. The first PM of the country was helpless. Imagine then he was saying that the inflation problem was so serious. How the country’s first prime minister threw up his hands in front of the country. Pandit Nehru also said if something happens in America, it affects the price of our commodities. If you [Congress] were in power today, you would have blamed inflation on the Covid pandemic and run away. The country is fortunate that you are not in power.” Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi’s statement that the government is favouring only a handful of industrialists, PM Modi said: “During the governments of Pandit Nehru and Indira Gandhi, people used to say Tata-Birla ki Sarkar. You are now speaking their tongue,”

While at a door-to-door campaign in the Mudhal village, Mr Sidhu said: “The main focus was to transform Punjab. It was never necessary to have a post for this purpose.

But fight over policies and accountability to bring change to the lives of the people, I will continue to ‘fight for truth and rights’ (haqatesachdi ladai). I intend to fight for people’s welfare.
