Here are some major updates: 

  1. Starting his speech in the upper house, PM Modi said, “The lynching in Jharkhand has pained me. It has saddened others too. But, some here in the Rajya Sabha are calling Jharkhand a hub of lynching. Is this fair? Why are they insulting a whole state? None of us have the right to insult the state of Jharkhand.”

2. Talking about his party’s spectacular victory, PM Modi said: “It is after long that a government with a full majority won once again with a full majority. In this mandate, we see the wish of the people for stability. In fact, this trend of stable governments is being seen in many states as well.”

 3. In her maiden speech in Parliament, Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra warned that prevalent signs suggest that India is moving towards fascism.

4. Speaking on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address BJP leader K J Alphons in Rajya Sabha said that minorities have never been safer in the country than under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

5. Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury accused the government of using ‘suppressive’ tactics against the media.

6. “My friends in Congress have not been able to digest victory. They have not been able to accept defeat. I do not consider this to be a healthy sign in a democracy,” PM said.

While AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi asked why the prime minister was not saying anything on the killing of Muslims in hate violence.

Targeting PM Modi for his comments in Lok Sabha on Muslims, he also said if someone was making comments like let Muslims be in the gutter, then why was the prime minister not giving reservation to Muslims if he wants to uplift the community.
