LS to take up no-trust motion today

Rahul Gandhi attacked PM Modi on multiple issues including the Rafale deal.

While Rahul stunned the nation by hugging PM Modi in Lok Sabha, the prime minister targetted Gandhi's Congress with a searing speech.

If Rahul Gandhi kept Modi in his line of fire through his speech, it was the turn of the Congress' ruling family to feel the heat when the Prime Minister spoke. A few minutes later, Rahul's jibe that Modi couldn't look him in the eye seemed to leave the PM somewhat bemused.

Sonia Gandhi told NDTV she was "very happy" with son Rahul's performance and "I am happy the media is changing too".

Modi next took on the epithet bhaagidar, which the Congress president had used earlier in the day to allege that the prime minister has received kickbacks in the Rafale jets deal.

"Thank you so much for teaching me my dharma and the importance of being a Hindu and I would like to sincerely thank you for that".


The first National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government had lost such a motion in 1999. "Had it not been your arrogance, and had you understood the problems of the states, GST would have been implemented five years ago", the Prime Minister said.

Known for his hugs but this was one Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not expecting.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor posted a tweet in praise of his party chief for the sudden hug. "Telugu Desam Party moved the no confidence motion; only some have supported it and majority have opposed it", Modi added. They are not like any of us. "We will do everything possible for the development of Andhra Pradesh", Modi said. My advice to the Congress is that if you want to test your allies, don't make the no-confidence motion a pretext.

"The Modi government had lost confidence of every section of the society, including farmers and youths, while unemployment and price rise have broken all the records".

Alleging corruption in the deal, the Congress has been demanding details, including cost of equipment and weapons, but the government has refused to share them citing a secrecy pact with France.
