Rajya Sabha: Narendra Modi heaps praises on the NCP amidst political turmoil in Maharashtra

The Prime Minister also said that the function of the Rajya Sabha is providing checks and balance. However, he emphasized that there is a significant difference between checking and 'clogging' and balance and 'blocking'.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his address to the Rajya Sabha on the beginning of its 250th session, heaped praises on the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Biju Janata Dal (BJD). The Prime Minister’s praise for the NCP comes at a time when Maharashtra is going through political turmoil.

Narendra Modi complimented the two parties for their decision to never venture into the well of the House. He said that the success they have achieved during elections is evidence of the fact that political victories can be scored without violating Parliamentary norms. He said that every party, including the BJP, could learn from the conduct of these two parties.

The Prime Minister also said that the function of the Rajya Sabha is providing checks and balance. However, he emphasized that there is a significant difference between checking and ‘clogging’ and balance and ‘blocking’.

Narendra Modi also praised the Rajya Sabha for its historic role in the abrogation of Article 370, the passage of the Triple Talaq Bill and the GST Bill. His praise for the NCP comes at a time when BJP’s traditional partner Shiv Sena dumped it in an attempt to secure an alliance with the NCP. However, thus far, Uddhar Thackeray and his men haven’t been successful thus far in their pursuit of the Chief Minister’s chair.

While the BJP will insist that the Prime Minister’s remarks had little to do with the political circumstances in Maharashtra, observers will no doubt note the political undertones of his comments, and perhaps with good reason.
