Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 15 December attacked the Congress for disrupting both Houses of Parliament because it could not reconcile to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Disrupt, Destruct and Demolish’ is the Congress motto as seen in Parliament. They had even ignored President Pranab Mukherjee’s advise to let Parliament function.

“Those who have been beaten and sent home are now saying that we (BJP) have been destroyed and that we will not let Parliament run,” he said in an obvious reference to the Congress’s tactics, especially in the Upper House, where it is in majority.

“They have made a joke of Parliament,” he said, while speaking at an event organised by Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP), an outfit of the backward Ezhava community.

It may be noted Rajya Sabha turned ugly after Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi commented that Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy was not invited to the PM’s event at the instance of SNDP chief Vellapally Natesan.

Later, Modi unveiled a statue of former CM and Congress leader R Sankar, who belongs to the Ezhava community.

Recalling President Mukherjee’s speech on Sunday, he said Mukherjee said there are three D’s for Parliament—debate, dissent and decision.

Referring to Congress citing Mukherjee’s remarks on intolerance, he said the party has a habit of quoting him, but they aren’t ready to take note of his three Ds.

“They have eaten the three Ds. They like only one D, which is disrupt. They have forgotten the other two Ds,” said Modi. “For us, apart from the three Ds, there is a fourth D which is development,” he said, amidst cheers.
