PM Modi slams UPA govt, calls its rule decade of corruption

NEW DELHI : Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the UPA-II regime and termed Congress’s rule a decade of corruption and terror. He said that while the world was busy enhancing its technology, the UPA-II were busy with scams like 2G.
There were two-three decades of instability; now there is political stability in country, a decisive government is in place, he said.
“. Replying to the motion of thanks to the President’s address in parliament, he said, “2004 to 2014 was the decade of scams and violence and the UPA’s trademark was to turn every opportunity into crisis”. And while the Congress might feel the way to go is to “abuse Modi”, the 140 crore people of the country were his “shield”.
Trust in Modi was not born out of newspaper headlines, not through faces on TV. (I have) given my life, every moment of mine for the people of the country, for the glorious future of the country, prime minister said. Those who are drunk in arrogance and think that only they have the knowledge, feel that only by abusing Modi will a way come out, that only through false, nonsensical mudslinging on Modi will a path be paved. It has been 22 years, they still have a misapprehension: PM Modi
Hitting out at the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that abuses and allegations towards me will have to go through crores of citizens first. “I have been working for the nation for 25 years, you can not breach this trust with your lies,” PM Modi said. Not just Harvard, all big universities of the world will conduct studies on Congress’s downfall, said PM Modi in Lok  Sabha, adding that Enforcement Directorate has brought all Opposition parties together on one platform, it has done what electorate could not do.
Raising slogans, members of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), Left parties and some members of the Congress walked out of Lok Sabha in protest as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi was speaking. The Opposition has been demanding an inquiry into the allegations levelled by the Hindenburg firm on Adani group. The opposition parties have alleged that the meltdown in Adani Group shares is a ‘mega scam’ that involves common people’s money as public sector LIC and SBI have invested in them and have questioned the government on steps taken by it.

“Some people are living for themselves and their families, but Modi is living for the people of India. Some people are destroying India for their families. 140 crore people of India are Narendra Modi’s safety armour,” PM Modi said. A few people, drowning in despair, are unable to accept the country’s progress. They don’t see the achievements of the people of the country. It’s the result of the efforts of 140 crore people of the country due to which India is making a name. They don’t see those achievements,” the prime minister said as “Modi-Modi” chants resonated in Parliament.
Address to Parliament. The opposition camp led by Rahul Gandhi cornered the Central government from all sides, largely over the Adani Group stock rout and allegations of financial irregularities and market manipulation against the energy-to-port conglomerate. Rahul Gandhi had accused the Prime Minister of having links with billionaire Gautam Adani, whose companies are in the spotlight after a damaging report by US-based short-seller Hindenburg Research alleged stock manipulation and accounting fraud by the group. He said the Harvard University of the US should focus on the situation. “Harvard University should study the relationship between politics and business – India is a case study and the Prime Minister should be given a gold medal for this,” Mr Gandhi had said in his first speech in Lok Sabha after his Bharat Jodo Yatra.
PM Modi’s address came a day after senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi spoke on the Motion of Thanks to President Murmu, during which he questioned the Centre for the rise of Adani. Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge in his Rajya Sabha address on Wednesday said that every issue in the country is communalised, adding that PM Modi should spend more time in the House. The Prime Minister accused the opposition of being so “immersed in despair” that they can’t see the progress the country is making. “And why wouldn’t it be so? Because in the decade between 2004 and 2014…” he said, launching into one of his sharpest attacks on the Congress.
PM Modi said that the 10 years of UPA government between 2004 to 2014 saw most cases of corruption in the history of Independent India. That decade also saw terrorist forces rear their heads. The prime minister said that India lost its global standing in those 10 years. “That decade will be known as the lost decade,” he sai
“Yesterday again in the Parliament, there was a discussion on Harvard,” PM Modi then added, leaving no room for doubt about his target.  “The Congress said India’s destruction will be a case study at Harvard. However, in the past few years, Harvard did an important study. The topic was: The Rise and Decline of India’s Congress Party. In the future, the destruction of Congress will not just be studied at Harvard but also at many other institutions around the globe,” he added.”Democracy Cremated In Lok Sabha”: Congress On Expunging Rahul Gandhi’s Remarks
“Before 2014, between 2004-14, inflation was high. That decade was the most corrupt since Independence. In UPA’s 10-year rule, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, the entire country was gripped with terrorism. From Jammu and Kashmir to the northeast, the entire region saw nothing but violence. In those 10 years, India was so weak at the global stage, no one was even ready to listen to India. Between 2004 and 2014, the UPA turned every opportunity into a crisis,” PM Modi said, amid raucous cheers from the treasury benches. Hinting that corruption over those 10 years had brought the Opposition under the scanner of Central investigative agencies, he taunted the opposition over its deep rifts.
Some people seeped into morose can’t accept India’s achievements. In the last 9 years, India has become home to 90,000 start-ups. It’s the third biggest in terms of start-ups: PM Modi said in Lok Sabha “Here in the discussion everyone gave their own figures and argument, kept their points according to their interest, tendency and nature and when we try to understand these things, it also comes into mind that how much capacity they have.
The country is evaluating all these,” PM Modi said, “Several countries are suffering from instability due to war. Several others are facing inflation, unemployment, and lack of food security including our neighbours. Amid difficult times, India became the fifth-largest economy,” PM Modi pointed out. “India is emerging as a manufacturing hub. The world sees its prosperity in India’s growth but some people don’t want to accept it. The country is moving ahead at full strength, with massive transformation through technology taking place,” the prime minister said.
Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in Parliament, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that “PM is shell shocked”. While speaking to reporters after PM Modi’s address, Rahul Gandhi said, “I am not satisfied with what the prime minister said , but it reveals the truth. “He (Modi) did not speak about the inquiry. If Adani is not his friend, he should have agreed to an investigation into the matter,” Rahul Gandhi said.
