As the packed audience burst into thunderous applause, Sinha asked, "Need I say anymore?"
Addressing company secretaries from all over the country, Modi said, "After achieving average growth of 7.5% over 3 years, we accept that growth rates came down April-June but govt is committed to reverse it".
"Kauravas were 100 brothers but if I ask you to name a third brother, you can not". He also said that the central government had been given loans under different schemes and projects to people who wished to establish their own venture and those succeeded too. Without naming either, Sinha talked about "two most infamous" figures among the Kaurava clan - Duryodhana and Dushasana.
"The soul of democracy is the consensus". If discussions and debates don't take place, consensus will not take place. "So even if you have the numbers, you have to reach out to other people and parties to try and get them along", Sinha mentioned. "So when I was approached to come to this function to release the book by Manish Tewari, I readily agreed, he said".
Reminding the naysayers of the recent reforms brought in by the government, the PM said that in last three years, " the government had brought in 87 reforms (small to large) connected to 21 sectors".
Now, more than three years later, when the Modi government at the Centre is facing severe criticism over its handling of the Indian economy, Kejriwal made a decision to renew his attack against the PM.
Sinha accused government leadership of trying to derail the debate on economy by "entangling" his critique in red herrings like "tiff between father and son" and his being denied the job of Brics Bank chairman.
Hitting out at Sinha, Prasad said the party stood with him during his tough times."When he lost the 2004 Lok Sabha polls, we sent him to the Rajya Sabha and appointed him as BJP's national vice president". Responding to the comment that Sinha's position must have created a divide in the family, he maintained that it was just a ploy to divert the attention from the issues he had raised.
He added that the government is also willing to make changes in the GST as per the suggestions. "When all this failed, a gentleman spoke for one-and-a-half hours on Wednesday evening (referring to the Prime Minister)".
