No-confidence motion: Modi’s ‘prediction’ from 2019 goes viral

New Delhi,: With the opposition moving a no-confidence motion against his government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks in Lok Sabha in 2019 have gone viral in which he mockingly tells opposition parties to prepare hard to bring such a motion in 2023.

“I want to send you my good wishes that you prepare so much that you get a chance to bring a no-confidence again in 2023,” he had said during his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address — his last major speech in the House ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The BJP went on to notch up a bigger win in the 2019 polls, bagging 303 seats compared to 282 in the 2014 general elections.

Responding to an opposition member, Modi said it was the consequence of arrogance that the Congress’ tally fell from over 400 at one time to nearly 40 in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

It is due to the spirit of service that the BJP rose from two seats to winning power on its own, he had said.
