Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lauded voters for rejecting the politics of deceit, defeating propaganda, and endorsing the politics of trust in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing the Rajya Sabha, the prime minister said that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government will focus on fighting poverty over the next five years.

During his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in the Upper House, PM Modi said, “We feel proud of the wisdom and intelligence of the people of this country in these elections. They defeated propaganda. They prioritized performance. They rejected the politics of deceit and put a stamp of victory on the politics of trust.”

“This opportunity given to us for the third time by the people of the country is to realize ‘Viksit Bharat’ (Developed India) and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (self-reliant India).”

Opposition MPs shouted slogans during the PM Modi’s speech, alleging that the Leader of the Opposition (LoP) in the Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge, was not allowed to speak.

“The next five years are to ensure saturation of basic facilities and for the fight against poverty. This country will emerge victorious against poverty in the next five years, and I am saying this based on the experience of the past 10 years. When India becomes the third-largest economy in the world, its impact will be on every sphere of life,” PM Modi said.

Lashing out at the Congress, PM Modi said, “…During Congress’s tenure, there was a scheme for a Rs 60,000 crore farmers’ loan waiver, but the names of needy small farmers were not even included in the list of beneficiaries.”
