Congress gave a full toss to Modi, Modi hit the ball out of the stadium

Congress and its legacy of massive self-goals.

The Congress party has a habit of scoring political self-goals. However, it seems that they have never learnt from their past mistakes of resorting to personal attacks against PM Modi and repeated the same blunder in the first session of newly elected 17th Lok Sabha.

This time it was party’s newly elected Leader of the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, who had asked Prime Minister Modi on whether he has managed to send Congress President and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi and his mother, former Congress President and Raebareli MP Sonia Gandhi to jail over corruption allegations.

Scoring a massive self-goal, Chowdhury had asked PM Modi whether he was able to ‘catch anybody’ in the 2G and coal allocation scam. He further told the Prime Minister that he came to power by calling Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and those leaders who were accused in the 2G and coal scams as thieves, “then how are they sitting in the Parliament?”

However, on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who never misses any chance to put his opponents to the ground chose to reply back to Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s tirade.

Social media hailed PM Modi for his witty response to the Congress leadership following Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s challenge to the government.

Speaking for the first time in the Parliament after the BJP-led NDA government was voted back to power with a thumping majority, PM Modi responded to Congress Lok Sabha leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s remarks. PM Modi took a jibe on Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and said that it’s not emergency that anybody can be put in jail. We work according to the law and if someone was getting bail then he should enjoy it. They don’t indulge in vendetta.

“The country was not under Emergency and due process of law will be followed. If you get bail, enjoy it,” PM Modi said in a veiled reference to Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.

Invoking the Emergency of 1975, Prime Minister Narendra Modi rejected Congress allegations that it was targeting Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and said “due process” will be followed while continuing the attack on corruption. PM Modi further said that his government will continue to take action against corruption.

Replying to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in Lok Sabha, PM Modi underscored that the Congress had no right to criticise him repeatedly, while attacking the Congress on the Emergency, for failing to empower people, especially Muslims and for ignoring its own leaders.
