Prime Minister Narendra Modi tears apart "misinformation" campaign
The no-trust motion was the first after Modi assumed office in May 2014 and less than a year before the next general elections.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi ripped apart the "misinformation" campaign of the opposition during his speech ahead of the voting on a no-confidence motion that was comprehensively defeated in the Lok Sabha, said Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today.
The Congress, the main opposition party which voted in favour of the TDP-sponsored motion last night, has now lost trust of people, he said.
"Modi ji has ripped apart the misinformation campaign of the Congress and its allies. The prime minister has stated facts, in which the nation believes in.
"This was a no-confidence motion which was turned down by an overwhelming majority," Fadnavis told PTI.
The BJP chief minister's reaction comes a day after the no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government was decisively defeated after an acrimonious debate in the Lok Sabha that witnessed political gamesmanship. Congress president Rahul Gandhi created a flutter when, after finishing his speech, walked towards Modi's seat and hugged him.
The prime minister later hit back, saying Gandhi was in a hurry to unseat him and grab his chair. During his speech, Modi listed achievements of his four-year-old government and targeted opposition parties, especially the Congress.
