thereto that an Address be presented to the President in the following terms ––– ‘That the Members of the Rajya Sabha assembled in this Session are deeply grateful to the President for the Address which he has been pleased to deliver to both Houses of Parliament assembled together on 20 June, 2019.'”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to reply to the debate once all members have concluded their speeches. Modi, on Tuesday, slammed the Congress party and Nehru Gandhi family for ‘alienating Muslims’ and using them as a vote bank.
“In the 50s, the Congress had option to introduce legislation on ‘Uniform Civil Code but they didn’t. They had another opportunity in the form of the Shah Bano case. It was a classic case of gender equality but they frittered away that opportunity,” Modi said.
