Parliament Monsoon Session LIVE Updates: The discussion on the No-Confidence Motion concluded in the Lok Sabha with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address in the House in which he targeted the Congress party and the INDIA alliance.

Speaking on Manipur, he said: "The crimes against women in Manipur are unforgivable. The Centre and state government is trying its best to give the accused the harshest punishment."

"I am sure that peace will prosper in Manipur," he added.

Ahead of Modi's address on Manipur, the Opposition staged a walkout while the prime minister targeted the INDIA alliance and the Congress party.

Soon after the address, the No-Confidence Motion was defeated via voice vote.

Here are the key highlights of the speech:

  • "In 2018, I had said that the motion is not a floor test of the government, it is the floor test of the Opposition. At that time, they were not even able to gather all of Opposition's votes."

  • "For the Opposition, the party is bigger than the country. They don't care about the poor's hunger, they only care about their hunger for power."

  • "You let the House function on the conditions put by your most corrupt ally."

  • "You conducted the last rites of the UPA in Bengaluru. I should have expressed my condolences then. You were conducting the last rites of UPA and celebrating."

  • "The 'ghamandiya gathbandhan' is the biggest example of dynasty politics. The founders of our Constitution had rejected dynasty politics."

  • "This is not 'mohobbat ki dukaan', this is 'loot ka bazaar'."

  • "Home Minister addressed and discussed Manipur peacefully. There was a genuine attempt to find solutions. But the Opposition was only interested in Manipur."

  • "I want to tell the mothers and sisters of Manipur that the country is with you. We all will find a solution together. Peace will be restored and Manipur will again embark on the path of development."

'We Staged a Walkout Because...'

Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said: "We staged a walkout because we didn't get the answer to these three questions in the last two hours. Keeping in mind our responsibility towards the people of Manipur, the INDA alliance parties walked out."

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said: “We had to walkout because even today the PM remained 'Nirav' on the issue of Manipur. So, I thought what is the use of seeing the new 'Nirav Modi'. PM Modi says the whole country is with him but why is he afraid of Congress."

"We expected him (PM Modi) to speak on economy, inflation, unemployment, Manipur, issue of brutalities on women of Manipur but in one and a half hour 90% of his speech was on INDIA," NCP leader Supriya Sule said.

Addressing the House on Manipur after the Opposition staged a walkout, PM Modi said:

  • "Home Minister addressed and discussed Manipur peacefully. There was a genuine attempt to find solutions. But the Opposition was only interested in Manipur."

  • "The crimes against women in Manipur are unforgivable. The Centre and state government is trying its best to give the accused the harshest punishment."

  • "I am sure that peace will remerge in Manipur."

  • "I want to tell the mothers and sisters of Manipur that the country is with you. We all will find a solution together. Peace will be restored and Manipur will again embark on the path of development."

  • "Problems in Manipur are being portrayed as if they began recently. Amit Shah mentioned the troubled history is detail yesterday. But if anybody gave birth to those problems in the Northeast, it's Manipur."
