“The no-confidence motion is a gift from God. It has always been lucky for us. We will break all records in the next Lok Sabha elections,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday (August 10), replying to the no-confidence motion in Parliament.

What Modi said: Here are the main points

*No-confidence has always been lucky for us

*Opposition is power-hungry

*I treat Opposition abuses as a tonic for me

*In 2014, a full majority govt came after three decades and we got a bigger mandate in 2019 because of our track record

*I don’t know what was compulsion of Congress for sidelining Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, maybe call was made from Kolkata

*The Opposition said banking sector would collapse. They asked foreign experts to say this. They spread lies about banks. Our public sector banks’ net profit doubled

*Opposition did the same about HAL. They used HAL was finished and India’s defence sector destroyed. A video too was filmed about HAL. Today, HAL is achieving new heights of success, registering biggest revenue

*We have restored India’s old glory on global stage. But some people want to defame the country

*Again, they did the same about LIC.Lies were spread about LIC. Today, it is growing stronger.

*Opposition has a secret boon. Whoever you curse does well. One such example is standing before you. ’20 saal ho gaye kya kuch nahi hua par bhala hi hota gaya.. But I have only prospered.

*Under Congress rule, Indian economy used to be languishing at 10th or 11th spot. After 2014, it is among top 5 economies

Opposition mocked Swachch Bharat Mission, Jan Dhan Mission, Digital India initiative and Startup India
