PM quotes speeches by Nehru and Indira, stating they had no faith in Indians’ abilities.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticized former Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, both key figures in the Congress party, for their lack of faith in the potential of Indians. Speaking during the discussion on the Motion of Thanks to President Droupadi Murmu’s address, the Prime Minister quoted excerpts from Nehru and Gandhi’s speeches to illustrate his point.

According to Modi, Nehru’s speech from the Red Fort revealed his belief that Indians were lazy and lacked intelligence. “Nehru had said, ‘We do not work as hard as the Europeans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, or the Americans. Do not think that these communities became prosperous by some magic. They have achieved this by hard work, by smartness,'” said the Prime Minister.

Modi also highlighted Indira Gandhi’s similar sentiments in her speech from the Red Fort. “Unfortunately, it is our habit that when a good work is approaching completion, we become complacent. And when an obstacle comes, we lose hope. Sometimes it seems the whole nation has accepted defeat,” he quoted her as saying.

The Prime Minister criticized the Congress party as a whole, referring to them as the “Royal Family of Congress,” and accused them of underestimating the potential of Indians. He expressed his strong belief in the ability of the country and its people.

To support his claim that Congress governments bring inflation, Modi referenced Jawaharlal Nehru’s writings. He stated, “History proves that Congress governments bring inflation. Whenever Congress came to power, it strengthened inflation. Our government has controlled it despite two wars and a pandemic.”

Modi also discussed the state of the Opposition, blaming the Congress for its current condition. He claimed that the Congress party’s failure and obstruction of other parties’ performance have ruined the parliament, the Opposition, and the country. However, he emphasized the importance of a strong Opposition and acknowledged that the Congress itself has experienced the consequences of dynasty politics.

The Prime Minister took a swipe at the INDIA Opposition bloc, criticizing their lack of trust in each other and questioning how they can trust the people if they cannot trust one another. The bloc is currently dealing with conflicts between the Congress and regional parties such as Trinamool Congress and Aam Aadmi Party.
