Prime Minister Narendra Modi choked up and struggled to speak in parliament today during a farewell to Congress veteran and Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad in the Rajya Sabha. PM Modi heaped praise on Ghulam Nabi Azad, sitting across him in the house, and teared up as he recalled an episode when they were both Chief Ministers – of Gujarat and Jammu and Kashmir. “I will never forget Shri Azad’s efforts and Shri Pranab Mukherjee’s efforts when people from Gujarat were stuck in Kashmir due to a terror attack. That night…Ghulam Nabi Ji called me…,” PM Modi, fighting tears, paused for water. “He sounded concerned like people are concerned about their own family members. That is the kind of feeling he showed.” As the Prime Minister stopped to gather himself, there was loud desk-thumping.
“Power comes and goes. But how to handle it…,” PM Modi stopped and saluted him, letting that gesture speak. राज्यसभा में पीएम हुए भावुक! Pm Modi Get Emotional In parliament। Modi Emotional Speech।
