Mann’s dig: Modi speech resembled ‘pravachans’

New Delhi: AAP MP Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying his speech in the Lok Sabha a day ago was akin to a religious discourse by a well-known preacher.

Modi’s “speech for an hour and 45 minutes had ‘dohas’ in Sanskrit and ‘jumlas’. But he failed to provide answers to the issues raised by me in Parliament,” the Lok Sabha member from Sangrur in Punjab said.

“The speech resembled the pravachans (religious discourse) delivered by Morari Bapu,” Mann said in a video clip on Facebook.

“He also recited a ‘doha’ on me. It would have been good if Modi had given answers to the issues raised by me. He should have replied to my contention that more than 125 persons died after demonetisation. He should have given a reply to a young woman from Punjab whose father died two days before her marriage due to demonetisation.”

He said Modi also ignored the issue of waiving off loans of farmers in Punjab.
