Lucknow: A day after winning the no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition in Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday took the debate to the people. Addressing a Kisan rally in Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh, Mr Modi said that the “daldal” (sludge) created by the coming together of disparate Opposition parties against the BJP would help the “lotus” bloom better.
“The daldal created by the coming together of several parties will only help the ‘lotus’ bloom better because the lotus blooms in daldal”, he said.
The Prime Minister also took a dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s unexpected hug in Parliament on Friday and said: “Yesterday in Parliament, I repeatedly asked them to give the reason for the no-confidence (motion). “When they could not give a satisfactory reply, woh gale padh gaye (they gave me an unwanted hug).”
