Rahul Gandhi’s Speech In Lok Sabha

Last week, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi spoke first from the Opposition side in Lok Sabha during the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address. He attacked the government alleging that two Indias, one for the rich and one for the poor, have been created and the gap between them was widening.

He even claimed that the country was at risk both internally and externally.

According to Rahul Gandhi, the President’s speech to a joint sitting of Parliament didn’t touch the central challenges facing the country and was a “list of bureaucratic ideas” instead of a strategic vision.

“There are now two distinct Indias, one India is for the extremely rich people – for those who have immense wealth, immense power, for those who don’t need a job, those who don’t need water connection, electricity connections, but for those who control the heartbeat of the country…the gap is widening between the two,” the Wayanad MP had claimed.

Rahul Gandhi accused the ruling BJP of bringing back the idea of a “king of India” which was “smashed in 1947”. He had targeted PM Narendra Modi saying that the “idea of a king is back”.

President Ram Nath Kovind’s Address

President Ram Nath Kovind had on January 31 addressed the Joint session of the Parliament and informed that the inflow of 48 billion dollars in investment in the first seven months of the current financial year was a testimony to the belief that the global investor community has in India’s growth story.

He also talked about the increasing exports of the country, saying: “India’s foreign exchange reserves today exceed 630 billion dollars. Our exports have also grown rapidly, breaking several past records. During April to December 2021, our goods-exports stood at 300 billion dollars or more than Rupees 22 lakh crore, which is one and a half times more than the corresponding period of 2020.”

Notably, Rajya Sabha last week clocked 100 per cent productivity, with the Upper House making full use of the available time in the ongoing Budget session as there were no undue adjournments.
