PM Modi Takes Swipe at Kharge's '400 Paar' Remark:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a dig at Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge during a session in the Rajya Sabha, referring to Kharge's '400 paar' (beyond 400) statement. PM Modi humorously prayed that the Congress at least secures 40 seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Commenting on Kharge's ambitious target, PM Modi said, "I pray that you keep 40 seats with you." He characterized Kharge as a source of entertainment in the Rajya Sabha and expressed amusement at the '400 paar' speech. Taking a playful jibe, PM Modi mentioned Kharge's opportunistic approach in the absence of certain commanders, equating it to scoring fours and sixes.

PM Modi criticized the Congress party for its lack of stability in leadership and principles. He questioned the party's decision-making during its rule, citing instances where Bharat Ratna was awarded to family members and roads were named after them. Expressing disappointment at the degeneration of the Congress, PM Modi refrained from delving into its foundation but raised concerns about its historical decisions and priorities.

Responding to Congress's recent demand for a caste census, PM Modi highlighted the party's historical stance against the Dalit, Picchda, and Adivasi communities. He referred to a letter from Pandit Nehru, expressing Nehru's initial reluctance towards any form of reservation, particularly in jobs, citing concerns about the potential decline in work standards.

PM Modi also took the opportunity to mention Sam Pitroda, a Congress leader, and his recent controversial statements, including downplaying Babasaheb Ambedkar's role in the Constitution and emphasizing Nehru's contributions.

Overall, PM Modi's remarks aimed at highlighting what he perceives as the inconsistencies and contradictions within the Congress party, adding a touch of humor to the political discourse in the Rajya Sabha.
