New Delhi, Feb 7 : The Congress on Thursday flayed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government for making use of customary Presidential address to the Joint Sitting of Parliament as a means to draw political mileage.
"Aap dusro ko mante hi nahi (You hardly bother about others and their views)," Congress floor leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said participating in the debate on the Motion of Thanks to the President's address delivered on January 31.
He said to draw political mileage through President's address was not in 'good taste (Yeh shobha nahi deta)'.
"Trying to draw a comparison between what your government has done and what we did in 10 years was uncalled for," Mr Kharge remarked.
It appears the President was made to speak what Prime Minister keeps repeating on every given occasion.
"It appears the Presidential speech was aimed at trying to save the falling reputation of the Modi government ," Mr Kharge said in presence of Prime Minister.
The debate on Motion of Thanks was taken by the Lok Sabha on Tuesday and is likely to end on Thursday with reply from Mr Modi. (UNI)
