Mahatma Gandhi wanted an India sans the Congress party, says PM

Modi devoted a significant part of his address to how he has had to struggle to right the wrongs of the Congress.

Targeting PM Modi over his speech in the Lok Sabha, Gandhi said there was "nothing new".

Modi also blamed Congress for stalling important bills in Parliament, which again was like a karma lesson of BJP-led government, as they did the same thing when they were in the Opposition. "It is a matter of even greater happiness that new Government-to-Government and business-to-business initiatives promise to add even more strength and depth to the bilateral cooperation in various areas of economic activity", Modi said.

Non-performing assets (NPAs) of banks was a "sin of the Congress", he said, and charged the party with looting the poor.

She also urged the Congress party to gear up for the general elections, which, she said, are due in slightly over a year and "might well be called earlier as they were in 2004". "Not a single day has passed when the country has not suffered due to the poison sowed by you".

He said that saying something won't actually make it true, and that people should look at the progress of North India, where Congress party had completely failed to do anything substantial for its citizens.

When Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu objected to Chowdhury's interruption, Modi said, "Sabhapati ji (Chairman Sir), I request you don't say anything to Renuka ji".

Mahila Congress chief and party spokesperson Sushmita Dev said the remark "belittled" the office of the prime minister and was an "insult to every woman in the country".

"For the opposition's unity we will be with Congress, whatever decision they take", Tripathi said.

"He (the Prime Minister) has made a personal comment which denigrates the status of women".

He accused the UPA government of carving out Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh in haste for its own political interests without addressing the grievances of residual Andhra Pradesh.

"I have proof of how the Congress looted and plundered India". Narendra Modi who always talks about doing good things for fellow countrymen chose not to talk about people indulging in violence under the name of Hindutva.

A binding force for the Congress and known for her ability to stitch alliances, Gandhi could be a guiding force for the opposition parties.
