Prime Minister Narendra Modi unleashed a harsh attack on the Congress on Monday, accusing the party of exploiting the Covid pandemic and driving migrant workers into instability and misery. Modi also blamed the Congress of spreading the coronavirus in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Punjab, while responding to the debate on the President’s speech to the joint session of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
During the first lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that Congress activists handed tickets to migrant workers so they could return to their homes.
Modi also chastised the Congress for questioning government plans, claiming that the party is adamant about not being president in the next 100 years. “You can disagree with me, but why are you (the Congress) opposed to the Fit India Movement and its goals?”
Modi also stated that Congress must examine why people have rejected them in so many states, but the party’s “arrogance” refuses to go despite multiple election setbacks.
Modi also praised India’s “economic strides” and said now is the ideal time to consider how India can play a leadership role in the post-Covid world, noting that there is a new world order and that India should not underestimate itself.
“We are living in a new era of globalisation. Following the pandemic, a new turning point has occurred. We’re gaining a reputation as thought leaders. “India must assume global leadership and not undervalue itself in doing so,” he remarked.
