Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a counter attack against the Congress in Lok Sabha, saying Partition was a result of Congress’ wrong policies, while in the Rajya Sabha he raked up the Triple Talaq issue, slamming the Grand Old Party for adopting “delaying” tactics in allowing passage of the legislation. Replying to the Motion of Thanks on President Ram Nath Kovind’s address, Modi said, “Not a single day has passed when country has not suffered due to poison sowed by you (Congress).”
In the Rajya Sabha, Modi asked Congress what stopped the party from bringing the Triple Talaq Bill in past 60 years and sought the opposition’s cooperation in passing the legislation, which is yet to be cleared in the Rajya Sabha. “Congress is vociferously batting for change in Triple Talaq law. If you feel so strongly about bringing changes to the Triple Talaq Bill, then you should have brought the law yourself when you were in power for so many years. What stopped you,” Modi asked.
