PM Modi to address Rajya Sabha today, a day after ripping apart Congress in Lok Sabha

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Wednesday address the Rajya Sabha, a day after ripping apart Congress in the Lok Sabha during the Motion of Thanks to the President's Address.

Modi targeted the Congress and said it could not even cross the 100-seat mark in the Lok Sabha polls for the third straight time.

Modi was remarking just a day after  Leader of Opposition and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi slammed the ruling dispensation over "Hinduism" triggering a furore in the lower house of Parliament.

Taunting Gandhi, he described his address in the Lok Sabha as 'childish'.

"It's for the third time in a row that Congress couldn't cross the figure of 100 in elections! It's the third biggest failure in elections in the history of Congress," Modi said in the Parliament attacking the grand old party of the country which managed 99 seats in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

Taking a jibe at Congress, Modi said: "There was a 'kid', who was very happily celebrating his score of '99'...But one of his teachers wondered and asked, 'why are you distributing sweets, why are you celebrating? 'The teacher wanted to tell that there was nothing to celebrate... The '99' points he secured weren't  out of 100, but out of '543'!"

He said in the third term, the BJP-led NDA will work with three times more power and speed.

"Our third term means that we'll bring 3 times results," he said.

Modi vowed that his government will now work to ensure India becomes the third-largest economy in the world.

"We made India the world's 5th largest economy within just 10 years. And now, the pace with which we have been moving ahead will soon make our country shine as the world's 3rd largest economy," Modi said.

Modi, who returned to power for the record third straight term as the Prime Minister, attacked Gandhi over his address in Lok Sabha and described it as 'childish'.

"We saw childish tantrums in the Lok Sabha yesterday," he said, sharpening his attack on the grand old part of the country.

"Rahul Gandhi is currently out on bail in a corruption case, convicted for insulting the OBC community, facing several defamation cases," he said.

Making a scathing remark against Congress, Modi said: "Congress spreading anarchy by its economic policies, divisive politics around castes and regions, questioning democratic process."

"Congress has become a parasitic party in these polls, its allies are behind its victory in most of the 99 seats it won," he said.

He said the Congress should not rejoice in winning the 99 seats and said it should accept the mandate.
