PM Modi LIVE in Rajya Sabha

  • A new entity has come up in the country- 'Andolan Jivi'. They can be spotted wherever there is a protest, be it agitation by lawyers, students, or labourers, explicitly or implicitly. They cannot live without 'andolan', we have to identify them & protect nation from them: PM Modi.
  • This country is proud of every Sikh; language some people use for them will not benefit nation, says PM Modi.
  • PM Modi says need to identify 'andolan jivi' who are parasites, feasting on every agitation.
  • Indian forces have given appropriate reply to misadventures on the border: PM Modi.
  • The nation is making progress and we are talking about FDI but I see that a new FDI has come to the fore. We have to protect the nation from this new FDI. We need Foreign Direct Investment but the new FDI is 'Foreign Destructive Ideology', we have to protect ourselves from it: PM.
  • India is very proud of the contribution of Sikhs. This is a community that has done so much for the nation. The words and blessings of the Guru Sahibs are precious: PM Modi.
  • MSP was there. MSP is there. MSP will remain in the future. Affordable ration for the poor will continue. Mandis will be modernised: PM.
  • We mustn't forget what happened with Punjab. It suffered the most during partition. It cried the most during 1984 riots. They became victims of most painful incidents. Innocents were killed in J&K. Business of weapons was carried out in northeast. All this affected the nation: PM.
  • Manmohan ji is here, I'd read out his quote. Those taking a U-Turn (farm laws) will perhaps agree with him. "There are other rigidities because of marketing regime set up in 1930s which prevent our farmers from selling their produce where they get highest rate of return...": PM.
  • "...It is our intention to remove all those handicaps which come in the way of India realising its vast potential at one large common market.": PM Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha.
  • NDA's other schemes also help farmers. For example- the PMGSY. When the road connectivity improves, it enables the produce of the farmers to reach distant places. There are efforts like Kisan Rail too. The need of the hour is to improve the lives of the small farmers: PM Modi.
  • Since 2014 we have initiated changes in the agriculture sector aimed at empowering the farmer. The crop insurance scheme was changed to make it more farmer-friendly. The PM-KISAN scheme was also brought in. We are working for small farmers: PM.
  • Small farmers at the centre of all our policies, schemes, says PM.
  • Farm loan waivers do not benefit small farmers, says PM.
  • We've forgotten the ideals of Netaji. We've started cursing ourselves. I sometimes get surprised, world gives us a term & we start following it: PM Modi.
  • India's nationalism is neither narrow now selfish and not even aggressive. This is inspired by the values of 'Satyam Shivam Sundaram'. This quotation was given by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose: PM Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha.
  • Our democracy is not a western institution. It's a human institution. India's history is filled with examples of democratic institutions. We find mention of 81 democracies in ancient India. Today it's essential to warn citizens about the attacks on India's nationalism: PM Modi.
  • India is not merely the world's largest democracy. India is the 'Mother of Democracy' and this is our ethos. Our nation's temperament is democratic: PM.
  • India's nationalism not narrow, greedy or aggressive: PM Modi.
  • I was listening to Derek ji, he had chosen good words - Freedom of Speech, Intimidation. When I was listening to him, I was wondering if he is talking about Bengal or the country. He sees all this for 24 hours, so he might have said the same here too: PM Modi in Rajya Sabha.
  • The COVID-19 period has added new strength to our federal structure and the spirit of cooperative federalism: PM.
  • India has seen days when there was a large threat of polio, small pox. Nobody knew whether India will get a vaccine or how many people will get it. From those days, we are now here- when our nation is making vaccines for the world. This increases our self-confidence: PM
