Watch: PM Modi Gets Emotional In Rajya Sabha, During Farewell Speech To Outgoing MP Ghulam Nabi Azad

Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi got emotional on Tuesday while giving a farewell speech to retiring Rajya Sabha members.

“The person who will replace Ghulam Nabi Ji (as Leader of the Opposition) will have difficulty in doing his job as he was concerned about not only his party but the country and the House”, said PM Modi in the Upper House today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Azad has set very high standards as MP and Leader of the Opposition and his work will inspire generations of MPs to come.

“I have known him for years. We were Chief Ministers together. I had a conversation before becoming CM when Azad Saheb was in active politics. He said that many people are not fond of gardening, Modi said, reminiscent of the old days.

Describing Azad as a true friend, the sharp-eyed PM Modi further said that power comes and goes, but how to handle it should be learned from Ghulam Nabi Azad. I consider him a true friend.

“He (Ghulam Nabi Azad) has distinguished himself in Parliament. He said that he not only cares about his party, but also has a similar passion towards running the house smoothly and developing India.”

Prime Minister also recalled his numerous interactions with  Nazir Ahmed Laway and Mohammad Fayaz and stated that their passion for Jammu and Kashmir’s progress is noteworthy.
