New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday mocked at Rahul Gandhi for hugging him in the Lok Sabha, saying the Congress President was actually dreaming to be the next Prime Minister and had asked him to get up from his seat in the Lok Sabha.
“In the morning, the voting was not over, the debate was also not over, one member came runnig to me saying – Utho Utho Utho… What is his hurry to come to power,” Modi said, gesturing with hands and recalling how Gandhi came to hug him after his speech.
“Let me tell this member it is the people who elected us. That is how we have come here.”
He said the opposition was enacting a drama and coming together “to remove one Modi”.
“See who all they are trying to bring together. But they should know we are here because we have the blessings of 125 crore Indians. We are not here for selfish interests.”
The Prime Minister said the no confidence motion has exposed how the opposition is hungry for power.
“What we saw among members of the Opposition was sheer arrogance. The only thing they have to say – remove Modi. Today the nation has seen the negativity expressed by some members. They are playing negative politics. India saw how some people are so deeply opposed to development.”
