New Delhi: While replying to the Motion of No Confidence in Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave over 2 hours long speech listing government’s achievements in last 9 years and berating the Opposition over latter’s attempt to politicize Manipur issue for scoring political points.
A day ago, Rahul Gandhi’s address in the Lower House drew much attention & many eyeballs, given the fact how Congress cornered the Centre over brutal & barbaric treatment of women in North-Eastern state. However the Congress leader ‘disappointed’ his followers, with his focus more on Bharat Yatra and less on violence-torn region.
Nevertheless, many Congressmen & supporters claimed that Rahul’s popularity is heading towards zenith while that of PM Modi is on downward trend and they cited social media viewership of these two leaders for corroborating their claims.
