He continued: "Whatever somebody does to you - abuse, beat up with a lathi - you nurture hate and anger against me, call me Pappu, I don't have an iota of hatred or anger against you. I thank you for teaching me the meaning of being a Hindu, of Lord Shiva". He said, "I have spoken about the Prime Minister and that he can not face me or stare me in my eyes".

Reacting to Rahul Gandhi's wink in Parliament, Priya Prakash said that she got the news about the Congress President winking at PM Modi after she came back from college. "This has never happened before", said Gandhi.

PM Modi, referring to the surgical strike, said the Congress should not "humiliate" the armed forces. "#NoConfidenceMotion. @RahulGandhi. What an inning played by you, Rahul Gandhi". While many praised Gandhi for his strong performance during the first no-confidence movement in the house in 15 years, some labelled it as "melodrama".

"He (Gandhi) stated that under pressure from the PM, (Defence Minister) Nirmala Sitharaman told lies to the nation".

Modi, startled by Gandhi's gesture, froze in his seat in an image that was repeatedly played on television screens across the country and went viral on social media.

"The Prime Minister and the BJP president are a different type of politicians". "They call us Punjabis as nashedi (drug addicts)". Because the moment they lose power, other processes will start against them. But they can not afford to lose power. "We are a large contributor to the government's revenue but what we get in return, very little", he said.

In his speech, Gandhi said that the Modi government was known for "jumla strikes" and has failed to fulfil promises made to the people. "It misused the provision to destabilise his government", he said.

An irked BJP has moved a privilege motion against the Congress President for levelling "baseless allegations" against the government on the Rafale deal and misleading the Parliament. He asked: "Why was the contract taken away from HAL and the youngsters of Karnataka and given to this businessman who has a debt of Rs 30,000 crore?" Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated that the details of the deal can not be revealed since a secrecy agreement was signed in 2008 with France and Rafale deal was also covered in it.
