In the Lok Sabha session held today, the opposition hilariously trolled Modi every time he used the world ‘jiyo‘ by shouting ‘Jio-Jio’, hinting at his favouring of Reliance! He retaliated by saying: ‘Jab tak jiyo, mauj karo’.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi responded to these critics in the Lok Sabha, including the Congress and AAP MP Bhagwant Maan. Modi said: “I generally tell people ‘ghee piyo‘, but if Bhagwant Mann were to tell people, he will ask them to drink something else.”
Mann has been a strident critic of Modi, mocking him openly in public rallies. Reacting to Modi’s jibe, Mann, condemning his statement, said: “Today’s speech in Parliament showed his fear in elections. He made some baseless allegations against me.”
Then sharpening his attack on the Congress, Modi said the party glorified the role of “one family” in the freedom struggle and said they had neglected the contribution of others.
“There are many people like me who couldn’t die for the nation during the freedom struggle but we are living for India and serving India,” Modi said. “Somewhere on the way, ‘Jan Shakti’ (people power) was forgotten and we don’t accept this. I never heard them speak about the role of Chandrasekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh and many other freedom fighters who laid down their lives for the country.”
