The main opposition party, whose MPs walked out of the House over Modi's reply to the debate on the motion of thanks to the president for his address to the joint sitting of the two Houses of Parliament, said it did not address the issues raised by lawmakers, including on the Rafale deal. He pointed out that while the Congress created Telangana after bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh for political considerations, former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee created Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh for reasons of good governance. "You are insulting Sant Basaveshwara", he said referring to the revered Lingayat saint, who is believed to have organised an open parliament called "Anubhava Mantapa" that promoted the participation of people without discrimination of caste and gender and was aimed at collective decision-making.

Hitting out at the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, Sonia added that constitutional powers have been weakened in the current dispensation. She assured that the party will work against the BJP's ideology to make India a democratic, inclusive, secular, tolerant and economically progressive. For decades, one party devoted all their energies in singing paeans to one family. A few weeks earlier, Modi, in a television interview, said that selling pakodas is also a form of employment and can be seen in the light of "job creation".

He said the Opposition's protest against his Government's use of Aadhaar was due to its scientific use to weed out corruption and give direct benefits to the people.

Modi said India did not get democracy due to Nehru and asked the Congress leaders to "please look at our rich history where there are many examples of rich democratic traditions that date back centuries ago". "'When a big tree falls'.you remember these lines".

Buoyed by her party's stunning victory in the recent Lok Sabha and Assembly by-polls in Rajasthan and its impressive electoral revival in Gujarat, former Congress president Sonia Gandhi expressed hope on Thursday (February 8) that the Grand Old Party's fortunes at the hustings were now in revival.

"Congress-mukt Bharat Gandhi ka vichar hai hamara nahi (Congress-free India is the idea of Gandhi not ours)".

"The President has spoken of New India in his address".

He said the Congress party while criticising BJP or Modi, start criticising India which adversely affects the country.

"Let me remind them about a debate in the Rajya Sabha on July 7, 1998, L. K. Advani as Home Minister of the country said in reply to a question that a multi goal identity card will also be used for passport, driving licence and others. Let there be no doubt about that", Sonia said in Congress Parliamentary Party meeting.

New Delhi-Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday blamed the Congress for India's Partition and the Kashmir issue.

Stressing on BJP's serious intentions on strengthening connectivity in Tripura, Modi said, "We have already given broad-gauge railway connectivity to Tripura, improved the national highways and large allocations have been given for development of airports in Tripura". The prime minister urged the people of the state to reject the government of Manik Sarkar and instead opt for "Hira [diamond]".
