The BJP on Thursday accused the Opposition of conspiring to disrupt Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address in the Rajya Sabha, asserting that he thwarted it and inspired the country with his speech.
BJP chief spokesperson Anil Baluni said that after Modi's Wednesday address in the Lok Sabha that destroyed the "negative and anti-national politics" of the Opposition, its "desperate and frustrated" members disrupted his speech in the Rajya Sabha.
However, Modi's address touched the hearts of India's 140 crore citizens and everyone is "proud" of the country's development journey under his leadership in this 'Amrit Kaal', the Rajya Sabha MP from Uttarakhand said.
He felled every attack from the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, and his address was a story of India's relentless development March, Baluni said. Modi replied in the Rajya Sabha to a discussion on the Motion of Thanks to the President's Address and asserted that the more mud the Opposition throws at him, the more lotus (BJP's election symbol) will bloom.
Opposition members raised slogans and protested through his speech as they raised the Adani issue to target the government.
