Opposition walks out as PM Modi taunts Cong-AAP alliance, in Rajya Sabha


Speaking in Rajya Sabha on Motion of Thank

Speaking in Rajya Sabha on Motion of Thanks to President's Address, PM Modi says," Congress has started running ‘Bhrashtachari bachao andolan’ now. When the corrupt are sent to jail they do hungama...It's being said that investigative agencies are being misused...'Bhrashtachar kare 'AAP', sharabghotala kare 'AAP' aur 'AAP ki shikayat kare Congress, AAP ko court mein leke jaye Congress, ab karyawahi ho toh gaali de Modi ko...And now they are partners....Congress had presented facts against AAP in a press conference, now they must tell if those facts were correct or not...."

On the Opposition's walkout from Rajya Sabha, Congress leader and LoP in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge says, "We walked out because the PM was addressing the House on the President's address and told some wrong things to the House. It's his habit to lie and say things beyond truth. I have just asked him that, when he was speaking about the Constitution, you didn't make the Constitution, you people were against it. I was just clarifying that who the people were for and against the Constitution... They (RSS) have opposed the Constitution. They burnt the effigy of BR Ambedkar & Pandit Nehru... He says time and again that we disrespected BR Ambedkar, he said it there (in Lok Sabha) and he is saying it today also... I wanted to tell what Babasaheb has said in the Constituent assemble and what the RSS has written in the Organiser..."

On the Opposition's walkout from Rajya Sabha, NCP-SCP chief Sharad Pawar says, "He (Mallikarjun Kahrge) is on a constitutional post. Be it the PM or the Chairman of the House, it's their responsibility to respect him, but today it was all ignored and hence the entire opposition is with him, and hence we walked out."
