New Delhi, February 5: Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered a scathing attack on the Congress party during his response to the motion of thanks to the President’s address in Lok Sabha. Modi disclosed that former Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru considered Indians ‘lazy’ and ‘less intelligent,’ shedding light on the historical perspective of the grand old party’s mindset.

In his address, the Prime Minister targeted the Congress, emphasizing the detrimental impact of its mistrust in the capabilities of the countrymen. “The country has suffered through the mindset of the Congress party, which has never trusted the capability of the countrymen. It considered itself rulers and the public as lesser and inferior,” stated PM Modi.

Reading out a statement attributed to Nehru, Modi revealed, “Nehruji thought that Indians were lazy and less intelligent.” He went on to assert that the thoughts of former PM Indira Gandhi were ‘no different’ from Nehru’s.

Referring to a statement by Indira Gandhi, Modi remarked, “Looking at the people in Congress today, it seems that Indira ji could not assess the people of the country correctly but assessed Congress correctly.”

Expressing confidence in his party’s third consecutive victory in the Lok Sabha polls, PM Modi also predicted India’s ascent to the third-largest economy in the world during the third term of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA government.

“The royal family of the Congress party thought this way about my countrymen. Even today, it reflects their way of thinking,” Modi added in a veiled attack on the Gandhi family.

Highlighting his optimism for India’s future economic standing, Modi concluded, “Based on the experience of 10 years of governance, looking at today’s strong economy and the rapid speed with which India is progressing today, I can confidently say that in our third term, India will be the third largest economic power. This is Modi’s guarantee.”

About 60 speakers participated in the debate on the motion of thanks on the President’s address in Lok Sabha. The budget session, which commenced on January 31, is scheduled to conclude on February 9.
