Narendra Modi, Parliament, Congress

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday mentioned in Parliament about Bills that are to be passed  for the people of the nation. The public in general should be well acquitted that these bills have been passed and stopped thereafter. 
Modi attacked the Opposition by saying, “Opposition doesn't let us speak out of an inferiority complex, so that the nation can't see our views & skills”
"How a functioning government can serve the people and progress in every sector with good results. NDA government has shown the way. But we have shown Congress how to run the country," Modi said. He added, "The problem is not that things are not being done; the Opposition's problem is that we are doing better than them."
“No one will deny that if Congress would have helped the poor in 60 years, the poor wouldn't still be facing trouble," Modi said, adding "We constructed toilets because you did not do it. We electrified 18,000 villages in India because you did not do it."

"Had we worked for the development of the poor , we would not have needed a policy for the poor to dig roads and get employment. We would not have needed MNREGA if there was no poverty. We are working to improvise on the policies for betterment," Modi asserted.
Taking a dig at the Congress, Modi said, "Kharge ji said there is corruption in MNREGA and I agree with him. Look at the CAG report of 2012 and what observations were made."  
"We have pushed this country to such a deplorable state wherein even a skilled labour is forced to take up unskilled jobs," Modi added.
The Prime Minister said that the project ‘Make in India’ was mocked by the Opposition whereas it should have been discussed for its success. "More than criticism, I'm facing allegations. I have learnt to live with it,” he said.
While Modi was speaking in the House, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi stood up to move out for some time when BJP leaders started taunting him. PM Modi stopped his speech and told the BJP MPs that this was wrong.
