Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently replying to the motion of thanks in the Rajya Sabha on the President’s Address.
Previously, Modi addressed the Lok Sabha earlier in the day stating that if the Central Government had worked according to “the old ways and thought processes”, abrogation of Article 370, resolution of Ram Janmabhoomi issue and abolition of Triple Talaq would not have been possible.
“The people of India have not only changed the ‘Sarkar’ (government). They want the ‘Sarokar’ to be changed as well. If we had worked according to the old ways and thought processes, Article 370 would never have been history. Muslim women would have kept suffering due to Triple Talaq,” Modi added.
