Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday replied to the motion of thanks on the President's address in Rajya Sabha, a day after he had addressed in Lok Sabha. PM Modi spoke on various issues including EVM, Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES), Jharkhand lynching and other issues.

Invoking Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in his speech, PM Modi said it is our belief that if Sardar Patel was first PM of India there would not have been Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) problem. 

Prime Minister Modi asserted that if the former would have become the first Prime Minister of the country, then there would have been no issues in Jammu and Kashmir.

PM Modi accused Congress of sidelining Sardar Patel. He said, "It is a known fact that if Sardar Patel was the first Prime Minister then we would not face the problems in Jammu and Kashmir."

The Prime Minister also mentioned that Sardar Patel was a true Congressman but his face appears only during Gujarat elections. He cannot be found in the entire country.

In an apparent reference to Congress President Rahul Gandhi, the Prime Minister asked the "party's senior leader" to pay tributes to him at the Statue of Unity in Gujarat.

On Lok Sabha results, PM Modi said "it is after long that a government with full majority won once again with a full majority. In this mandate, we see wish from the people for stability. Infact, this trend of stable governments is being seen in many states as well."

Slamming the Congress party and questions being raised on the electoral process, PM Modi said, "Did India lose in Wayanad? Did India lose in Rae Bareli? Did India lose in Trivandrum, what about Amethi? What kind of argument is this? If Congress loses then does that mean India lost? There is a limit to arrogance. Congress could not win a single seat in 17 states."

"I was saddened when some leaders said the BJP and allies won the elections but the country lost and democracy lost. These statements are really unfortunate. Why should we question the decision of voters?"

PM Modi spoke on EVM issue and questions being raised on the electoral process. The Prime Minister said that there was a time when we (BJP) was limited to 2-4 seats in the Lok Sabha but we never lose faith and confidence in ourselves. We never blamed that due to this or that reason, or booth capture, we lost the election."
