Hitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi who targeted the Congress, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad Wednesday said the PM’s reply to debate on the President’s address was “disappointing” and not worth “remembering”.
Azad said Modi chose issues which should be debated at the panchayat level and were not worth discussing in Parliament. “The PM’s speech was disappointing. There was nothing in that speech worth remembering or quoting,” he said.

Azad said the PM did not reply to any of the “real issues” that the opposition had raised — such as his failure to provide 2 crore jobs to youths every year as promised, providing relief to crisis-hit farmers, Dalits and tribals, lack of funds for smart cities, black money, purchase of 36 Rafale fighter jets from France in a fly-away condition without technology transfer, and foreign policy vis a vis China and Pakistan.
Asked about the PM linking the Congress with death, Azad said Modi does not how to give an example. Azad then recalled that Modi had once given the puppy analogy for the killing of minorities during the Gujarat riots to back his argument.
