'People Outside Family Not Recognised': PM Modi's Top Quotes In Parliament

PM Modi is adressing the Parliament during the ongoing Budget Session

New Delhi:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing the Parliament today during the ongoing Budget Session. The Prime Minister is delivering a note of thanks to President Ram Nath Kovind's joint address last week. The prime minister is speaking about elections and said he does not care about winning or losing. He also attacked the Congress and spoke about the Emergency, calling it a "blot on democracy."
Here are the top quotes from PM Modi's address:
  1. The dream of a secure nation has been seen by many leaders. To fulfil this with resolve, we all have to move forward. This is the aspiration of India.To fulfil the nation's needs, we can cross all challenges. A lot of lawmakers who are making their debut promised to put their points forward well.
  2. The President in his speech highlighted the vision of new India. In his speech, the President drew a blueprint on where do we want to take India, how we want to take and how we are going to fulfil the aspirations of the common human being of the country. The President spoke about the 150th Jayanti of Bapu and 75 years of India's freedom. These are landmark occasions in the history of India. During the freedom struggle, brave women and men died for the nation. This led to Independence. Today, we have to live for the nation and build the India our freedom fighters dreamt of. I urge everyone to observe Gandhi 150 and 75 years of India's freedom with great vigour.
  3. The people of India have elected a stable Government. The 2019 Lok Sabha elections show that more than themselves, the people of India are thinking about the good of the nation. This spirit is wonderful. In 2014, the nation had chosen us as an experiment. But in 2019, the people who reign supreme in democracy have reposed their faith in us after evaluating our performance. There is no greater satisfaction than being rewarded on the basis of your work.
  4. I do not think about elections in terms of who won and who lost. For me, what is satisfying is the opportunity to serve 130 crore Indians and do work that has made a positive difference in the lives of our citizens. Every moment, the people have analysed everything happening and have made us sit here again today. This government's 5 years of tough work, for implementing laws, the people have made us sit here again today. When I first came to Central hall, I had said my government is for the poor. After those 5 years, I can say, the people have accepted by pressing the EVM button. This Lok Sabha election has shown that more than themselves, the people of India are thinking about the betterment of the country.
  5. A few people were constantly asking during the debate- Who did it? Who did it?  I want to ask them- today is 25th June. Who imposed the Emergency? Who trampled over the spirit of the Constitution, gagged the media and bullied the judiciary? We can't forget those dark days. India's soul was crushed. It is a blot on democracy that will never fade.
  6. Those who don't have anyone have the government. I hadn't asked for chulha. I lived my life without electricity. Now there are questions. From why don't they do it to why do they do it, the journey was long. I can say with satisfaction that we have taken the right direction to remove 70-year-old diseases and we went in that direction even after a lot of difficulties.
  7. We did not divert from our development path, we did not dilute our development agenda. It is important that the country progresses, every Indian is empowered and our nation has modern infrastructure. We believe in public welfare and modern infrastructure.
  8. There are some people who feel only a few names contributed to national progress. They only want to hear those few names and ignore the others. We think differently, we feel each and every citizen has worked for India's progress. Did those in power from 2004 to 2014 ever talk about the good work of Atal Ji? Did they ever speak about the good work of Narasimha Rao Ji? In this Lok Sabha debate the same people did not even speak of Manmohan Singh Ji. They never recognised anybody outside the family.
  9. You (Congress) have risen so high that you have been uprooted from the ground. Our (BJP) aim is to remain closer to the people at the grassroots and strengthen them. We took office again a few weeks ago and I am happy to say we have taken numerous pro-people decisions. The decisions we have taken will benefit farmers, traders, youngsters and other sections of society. A lot of the major promises we made, we have begun fulfilling them. Let it be our collective endeavour to make India a five trillion dollar economy.
  10. Congress got many opportunities for upliftment of women. There was debate on uniform civil code. Instead they went ahead with Hindu code bills and missed it. Thirty-five years later, they got another chance, there was Shah Bano. But because they were at such a height, it stopped them from seeing what was below them. They missed again. During Shah Bano, Congress ministers had said, "Muslims' growth is not responsibility of Congress, "if they want to lie in gutter, let them be."
