He added that instead of focusing on the promises made by the government or the people's problems and their solutions, the prime minister took more than an hour on "digging the history of the Congress party".
"For the first time, I have seen that the Prime Minister of India, while speaking on the Motion of Thanks to the President in the Lok Sabha, instead of focusing on the promises made by the government, the people's problems and their solutions, took more than an hour on digging the history of the Congress party. His speech lost relevance in so far as the reply to the Motion of Thanks to the President was concerned. It was like a speech being given in an election rally," Mr Yadav said in a statement.
He added that instead of focusing on the burning issues the people of the country were facing, the Prime Minister's entire speech was a scathing attack on the Congress party.
The veteran leader added that the Prime Minister should have spoken about the farmers' distress, the dwindling economy, the decreasing avenues of employment faced by the middle-class and poor people.
