Everyone has to work together," Modi said in the Rajya Sabha. Replying to the debate on the motion of thanks to the president's speech in the upper house, he said: "In a democracy, threats do not work. This nation did not bend during the emergency also."

The prime minister took on the opposition over its claims that most schemes being run by the NDA government were re-packaged. "It has been said that the schemes are old. There is nothing new. Whether the schemes are new or old is not the issue. The issue is that the problems are old. We should look for solutions to these problems."
