Here are the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's replied on #NoConfidenceMotion in Lok Sabha

  • PM Modi praises the power of democracy. It's a chance to reassess the performance of the govt: he said.
  • I urge all parties to reject the #NoConfidenceMotion that has been moved in the House
  • “The question is why the motion was moved, when there is no mandate, no numbers,” to bring down the government he asks with a quip about a “bhookambh”, a reference to the popular hashtag on Rahul Gandhi’s speech.
  • “The only agenda is ‘Modi hatao’ but “I cannot be removed except by the 125 crore people of India. Why this hurry to remove me. In democracy, we should remain patient.”
  •  “The only agenda is ‘Modi hatao’ but “I cannot be removed except by the 125 crore people of India. Why this hurry to remove me. In democracy, we should remain patient.”
  • “It's not the floor test of the govt. But a floor test for the Congress and a trial on the ‘what if I become Prime Minister dream’,” the PM said.
  • After slamming Rahul Gandhi on Doklam, PM Modi moves on to Rafale. “I cannot imagine such game can be played with the nation's security. The nation won't forgive you. This is the time for you change.”
PM Modi halted due to the ruckus made by the opposition 

Disrespecting the democratic process in Lok Sabha by raising slogans and shouting during the reply by PM Modi, TDP members displayed an ugly side of their political culture.

However, PM Modi resumes his reply amidst protest.
  • “Sabka saath, sabka vikas government, when we worked on electrification in 18,000 villages. Among this 15,000 villages. Our tribals, Dalits and backward people reside,” he said.
  •  8 crore toilets have been build for our poor mothers and sisters, PM Modi said adding about the free LPG scheme. Quotes an “international report” to claim 5 crore people came out of poverty and reels out other statistics. “These people don't have confidence in that,” he added.
  • Prime Minister goes on listing insurance scheme, health care, LED bulbs and the resultant savings in power, more companies that make mobile phones.
  • He then moves on to youth quoting 13 crore youth have been given loans, 10,000 start-ups are taking India forward.
  • The Prime Minister said India is 6th in managing financial management. “We used technology to bring Rs. 90,000 crore which would have gone to some other hands. We have shut down 2.5 lakh shell companies.”
  • He further added that benami transactions have been checked to a large extent.
  • PM Modi said, “No trust is part of Congress culture. They have no trust in Yoga day, CJI, RBI and other institutions... why? They don't trust themselves.”
  • “People who were sitting on a their own special rules were worried when the transformation made its way towards people’s power,” he said.
  • “These days talk of lord Shiva is being made. I pray to him that you people should bring another no-confidence motion after the next elections too,” PM added.
  • One of the leaders spoke about Doklam. The same leader, who believed the Chinese Ambassador over our forces. Where have we reached? Everything does not merit a childish conduct: PM Modi
  • After slamming Rahul Gandhi on Doklam, PM Modi moves on to Rafale. “I cannot imagine such game can be played with the nation's security. The nation won't forgive you. This is the time for you change.”
  • PM Modi said, "In the morning, the voting was not over, the debate was also not over one member comes running to me saying- Utho Utho Utho..What is his hurry to come to power? Let me tell this member it is the people who elected us. That is how we have come here."
  • “You called the surgical strike a Jumla Strike. You can abuse me as much as you want but stop insulting the Jawans of India. I will not tolerate this insult to our forces”: PM Modi
  • “Can anyone use such language against our soldiers,” he asked. “I cannot imagine the hurt such irresponsible speech would have caused. Country won't forgive you for calling surgical strikes a jhumla.”
  • He mocked the Congress statement about the numbers. “I remember the 1999 statement made in front of the Rashtrapati Bhavan about having 272 MPs’ support. And it turned out to be otherwise.”
  • “This is the culture of the Congress,” he says. From Charan Singh and Chandra Shekar and Deve Gowda to I.K. Gujral who would forget Congress’ withdrawal of support, he said. “And twice Congress tried to buy votes with notes. Who can forget that?”
  • “I am the son a poor mother. You are ‘naamdaar’. I don't have the courage to see eye to eye,” PM Modi quips referring to Rahul Gandhi’s speech.
  • “And after the eye-to-eye came the wink, everyone is watching in TV, ” he added.

  • Atal Ji created 3 states- Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. It was done peacefully. These states are now prospering. Congress divided Andhra Pradesh and their conduct then was shameful: PM Modi
  • When TDP was leaving NDA, I called up Chandrababu Naidu, warned him that you are falling into YSR Congress's trap
  • The prime minister also reiterated that his government will do everything possible for the development of Andhra Pradesh. "I want to tell the people of Andhra Pradesh that we will keep working for them," he added.
  • PM Modi now moves on to talk about bank loans and NPAs. Numbers are being reeled out amid slogans of “We Want Justice”. Though not shown by Lok Sabha TV we can understand the protest is by members from A.P.
  • “I want to tell you about the NPA problem. Much before Internet Banking, Congress Party invented Phone Banking and this caused the NPA mess. A phone call would get loans for their cronies and the nation suffered.”
  • Prime Minister referred to notes to talk about the “damage” the UPA govt did to capital goods sector. Possibly the protests are at the Well of the House. Though it was not shown, we can see hands going up in the frame showing the PM.

  • The Prime Minister now turns to statistics on the job opportunities to be created by medical and legal professions.

  • It was believed that BJP couldn't win a seat in Kerala. Today, in Thiruvananthapuram Corporation, one-third councillors belong to BJP. He cities the example of Tripura, two which the Left members protest.

  • HM says, there have been earlier instances of economic offenders fleeing the country. But we were the one to bring a bill against fugitive economic offenders.
