Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the more mud is hurled at him, the more the lotus will bloom amid allegations from opposition parties on matters related to the Adani group. The Prime Minister said this while replying to the discussion in the Rajya Sabha on the motion of thanks on the President’s address. “Lotus” is the election symbol of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre.
The Prime Minister said- Some people have to understand that the age-old country is a country of common man’s sweat and traditions that have been going on for generations. There is no family property. We have given the Khel Ratna in the name of Dhyanchand. Andaman islands were named after Subhash Chandra Bose, Param Vir Chakra winners. The peak of the Himalayas has been made Everest. We named the islands after Param Vir Chakra winners.
Modi said that when he became the Prime Minister of the country in 2014, he saw that in 60 years the ‘Congress family’ has made potholes. He said, ‘It may be that his intention will be good, but he has made potholes. When he was digging pits… he wasted six decades, at that time even the smallest countries of the world were touching the heights of success… moving forward. During the Prime Minister’s speech, opposition members were raising slogans demanding the setting up of a Joint Parliamentary Committee to probe the matter related to the Adani Group.
