Prime Minister Narendra Modi choked up and struggled to speak in parliament today during a farewell to a rival politician, Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad.
PM Modi heaped praise on the Congress veteran who sat across him in the Rajya Sabha, and teared up as he shared an episode when they were both Chief Ministers – of Gujarat and Jammu and Kashmir. “I have known Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad for years. We were Chief Ministers together. We had interacted even before I became Chief Minister, when Azad Sahab was very much in active politics. He has a passion not many know about – gardening,” PM Modi said.
