Parliament debates no-confidence motion against Modi's gov't

The French government, in a statement on Friday, denied Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's claim that President Emmanuel Macron had told him that there was no secrecy clause binding on the Rafale deal and had also said it could be communicated to the public in India.

Modi, who spoke for well over 90 minutes, tore into the Gandhis: "Those who don't have confidence in themselves can not trust anyone". On reaching Modi's seat, Rahul again asked him to rise and opened his arms for a hug.

Along with #KyaHuaTeraVaada, the Congress posted another video in which PM Modi, while addressing a political rally, is seen saying "Na mei khata hun, aur na khane dunga".

He said the people of Telangana were annoyed with the Modi government at the outset of its rule in 2014 when a decision had been taken to merge seven "mandals" of Khammam district of Telangana with Andhra Pradesh, following bifurcation of undivided Andhra Pradesh. Compulsions of state politics made it necessary for the BJD to remain equidistant from both the Congress and BJP. But I am referring to two particular interviews that the French President had given to Indian TV channels. "See her arrogance. I was reminded about 1999". She first said that she will reveal details of the jet prices. "It misused the provision to destabilise his government", he said.

Trying to split Opposition ranks while tearing into the Congress, Modi said: "What did the Congress do to Charan Singhji, what did they do to Chandra Shekharji, what did they do to Deve Gowdaji, what did they do to I K Gujralji?" In his intervention, Rahul had said something had happened after Modi visited Fra- nce which led to the Rafale agreement being sealed. "I will not tolerate this insult to our armed forces".

The BJP leadership has chose to move a privilege motion against Gandhi, accusing him of making false allegations against the sitting defence minister of the country, even as Sitharaman refuted the charges levelled by the Congress president.

The Congress president also said that while the Union government was ready to waive loans taken by industrialists, it had not provided the same respite to farmers who have repeatedly urged the government to write off farm loans. "I cannot believe that truth can be twisted, that too repeatedly on issues like national security".
