Hitting back at the opposition parties, Modi said his government was not doing politics of appeasement or vote bank politics, but has been working with the philosophy of 'sabka saath, sabka vikas'.

He said the NDA government has done several things for the benefit of the people, but the opposition does not believe in the facts. "We are taking steps for doubling the income of farmers by 2022," he said.

Modi said the opposition, especially the Congress does not trust the Chief Justice of India, the Election Commission and the electronic voting machines.

He said "those who don't have confidence in themselves, cannot trust anyone."

"I pray to God to give you the strength to bring a no- confidence motion in 2024 also. My best wishes are with you", the Prime Minister said, taking a dig at the opposition.

He also targetted the Congress saying the major opposition party had brought the no-trust motion "to spread instability in the country."

Referring to the Dokalam stand-off, he said "when the whole country was united at the time of Dokalam, you met the Chinese envoy," Modi said in an apparent reference to Rahul Gandhi.

On Gandhi's allegations on the Rafale aircraft deal, he said "we must abstain from making childish statements on sensitive issues."

He also termed the surgical strikes as 'jumla strikes' as an insult to the security forces.
