‘Why hurry to grab power’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi retorted hours after Congress President Rahul Gandhi hugged him while wrapping up his speech on the no-confidence motion debate in Parliament on Friday.

“In the morning, the voting was not over, the debate was also not over one member comes running to me saying- Utho Utho Utho... What is his hurry to come to power? Let me tell this member it is the people who elected us. That is how we have come here,” he said in his reply to the debate.

“We are here because we have the blessings of 125 crore Indians. We are not here for selfish interest,” he said.

Modi also said that the no-confidence motion underlined the negativity of the opposition.
