Prime Minister Narendra Modi was greeted with shouts of “Modi, Modi” as he entered parliament for the second half of the rescued Budget session today.
In the audio-visuals, Modi PM was seen sitting in his usual seat in Lok Sabha, silently watching the chair of the government shouting “Modi, Modi” and knocking on the table to mark a remarkable 4/5 victory in the last BJP elections.
When he entered the house, the BJP MPs gave him a round of applause.
Union ministers, including Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh, met with government party deputies at the grand reception. Congress President Sonia Gandhi and other opposition leaders were in the House at the time.
Prime Minister Modi entered Lok Sabha while spokesman Om Birla told MPs he was talking about the Austrian parliamentary delegation, which was watching today’s events from a special box.
When the songs were turned off, the spokesperson welcomed the Austrian delegation, who were on a four-day visit to India.
In the February-March elections, the BJP again held an election record in Uttar Pradesh and won victories in Goa, Uttarakhand and Manipur, defying the predictions of a close battle.
Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won the Punjab.
Animations are expected to continue when the BJP parliamentary party meets at its weekly meeting tomorrow. Prime Minister Modi may speak at a meeting of parliamentarians in both chambers.
