PM Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the Congress party was spreading a myth that if it loses an election then it was a loss for the country.

PM Modi further said the Congress was consumed by pride and preferred to look outward without doing any introspection after its disastrous showing in the Lok Sabha battle.

"In 17 states, the Congress could not win even one seat. And it claimed that the country has lost the election. Such statements hurt people who cast their votes in the general election. This is also an insult to the people of the country," PM Modi said, at the Rajya Sabha.
