On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the opposition for the violence in Manipur and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA government responded appropriately to those sowing discord around the country with the no-confidence vote.

“We defeated the opposition’s no-confidence motion in Parliament and gave a befitting reply to those spreading negativity in the entire nation,” Modi said in a video address to the BJP’s Kshetriya Panchayati Raj Parishad in West Bengal. Midway through the session, opposition members fled the chamber. The reality is that they were afraid to vote on the motion of no confidence.

In addition, he criticized the Trinamool Congress for its role in the violence that marred the West Bengal panchayat election. During the Bengal elections, Modi claimed that Mamata Banerjee’s TMC threatened the BJP candidates and engaged in booth capture.

Violence has been used to intimidate the opposition… However, I commend those party members who, despite threats, prevailed in recent rural Bengal elections,” Modi said.
