Prime Minister Narendra Modi will respond to the debate on the motion of thanks to the President’s speech, later today in the Lok Sabha. On January 31, the budget session began with President Droupadi Murmu’s address to the joint session of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech comes a day after Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi spoke on the motion of thanks to President Murmu amid the Hindenburg-Adani spat, which figured prominently in the debate with opposition MPs pressing for their demand for an inquiry by a Joint Parliamentary Committee.

On Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi led the opposition Lok Sabha attack on the Hindenburg report, claiming Gautam Adani’s meteoric rise in fortunes occurred after the BJP came to power in 2014 when he rose up the world’s rich list. 609 to the second. place eventually. Participating in the debate on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Lok Sabha Speech as the first speaker of the opposition, Gandhi launched a barrage of accusations against Modi.

He asked how much money Adani has given to the BJP in the last 20 years, including through election bonds.

Speaker Birla asked Gandhi to focus on the president’s speech.

“There should be a case study on Adani by business schools like Harvard, on how the relationship between business and politics works, India is a case study,” Gandhi said.

He also criticized Modi for criticizing the Opposition for its criticism of the Rafale deal by allegedly overlooking the capabilities of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

President Om Birla disapproved of the Congress leader showing certain images in the House. “If you show posters, they (BJP) will show posters of the Prime Minister of Rajasthan (with Adani). Parliament is not up for these things,” Birla said.

Gandhi alleged that the government changed the rules in favor of Adani, saying the clause that no one without prior experience would be involved in airport development was removed.

“This rule was changed by the government and Adani was given six airports. After that, India’s most strategic and profitable airport, Mumbai Airport, was taken away from GVK’s usage agencies,” Rahul Gandhi alleged.

“The result is that 24 percent of India’s air traffic and 31 percent of air cargo go through Adani airports,” Gandhi said.

The treasury banks repeatedly asked Gandhi to authenticate his claims, saying that such accusations cannot be made against the government without documentary evidence.

“Adani never made drones whereas HAL used to and other companies do. They have four defense companies and they have never done this work before, small arms, sniper rifles, everything is made by Adani,” he said.

The Adani group has a 30 percent market share in the airport business and also controls 90 percent of Israel-India defense cooperation, he claimed.

The budget session will be completed in two parts: the first part of the session will take place from January 31 to February 11 and the second part will take place from March 14 to April 8.
