Taking potshots at the Congres President Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Modi while addressing the last session of the 16th Lok Sabha, recounted various antics the former had done over the last five years.
Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s bizarre hug-and-wink drama, PM Modi said, “Pehli baar is sadan mein aane par hi mujhe pata chala ki gale milna aur gale padna mein kya antar hota hai.” [First time after coming to the Parliament, I got to know the difference between ‘gale lagna‘ (hugging) and ‘gale padna‘ (throw oneself on).] He further added, “Is sadan mein pehli baar aankhon ki gustakhiyan wala khel bhi hua” (For the first time, this Parliament saw the ‘aankhon ki gustakhiyan’ scenes being played live too.)
Mocking Rahul Gandhi on his ‘there will be an earthquake in this Parliament’ statement, PM Modi said, “Some days they flew the planes (referring to the ruckus over Rafale deal when Congress MPs flew paper planes in the Parliament) but the place and respect of democracy and this temple of democracy are so high that these things didn’t affect it.”
PM Modi then enlisted the various achievements of the five years of his government’s term before thanking the Parliament for the lessons he has learnt.
