Modi highlights India’s achievements with Chandrayaan, G20, while Kharge accuses Union of weakening ‘strong’ Opposition 

During his address in the Lok Sabha during the special session of Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded “the success of the G20 Summit” and said that “it belonged to the 140 crore citizens of the country and not exclusively to one person or party,” while Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge alleged that the government was focusing on weakening the “strong” Opposition through central agencies like CBI and ED. 

The five-day special session of the Parliament has begun with an address by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha. The first day of the sitting has marked 75 years of the parliamentary journey right from the forming of the Constituent Assembly. Both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha are discussing the achievements, experiences, memories, and learnings in the last 75 years.

In his address, Modi lauded the success of Chandrayaan-3 and the G20 Summit and extended his congratulations to the scientists and those working with them once again. Modi said that the whole world is now looking for a friend in India.

While Kharge spoke during his address on a slew of issues, Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar objected and said that Kharge is ‘diverting from the point’. To this, Congress MP Jairam Ramesh asked the Chairman to let Kharge speak. 

“Change the way you do your politics, nothing new will happen if we shift to a new parliament,” Kharge said in Rajya Sabha.
