New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday delivered his last speech in the Lok Sabha before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. During his speech PM Modi took potshots at Congress president Rahul Gandhi over hug and wink. "Mein pehli baar yahan aya, bahut si cheezein jaanne ko mili. Pehli baar mujhe pata chala ki gale milne aur gale padne mein kya antar hai. Pehli baar dekh raha hun ki sadan mein aankhon se gustakhiyaan hoti hain."

PM Modi also pitched for a majority government, saying the country's image had enhanced globally due to the electoral mandate enjoyed by the current dispensation. Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi, who was not present in the House at that time, Modi referred to the Congress president's remarks on Rafale, and the hug and ‘winking’ episodes, saying it was a new thing he witnessed as a first-time member of Parliament.

The Prime Minister praised Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's leadership and said eight of 17 sessions of this Lok Sabha had over 100 per cent productivity. The overall productivity was recorded at over 85 per cent. He said India suffered globally for long due to fractured mandates. But now it is taken seriously in the global arena because of the majority government, he said.

Earlier today, Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav said he wished to see Narendra Modi back as prime minister, remarks which left the opposition squirming in Lok Sabha but were greeted by cheers from the treasury benches with the PM acknowledging Yadav's "blessings" with folded hands.

"I wish that all members come back to the House," Yadav said during the last sitting of the 16th Lok Sabha, drawing applause from the BJP members who are in a majority in the House. He said pointing to Modi that he wishes that the BJP leader come back as the prime minister.

Ruling alliance members heartily cheered Yadav with chants of "Jai Shri Ram" as he praised Modi for "making efforts to take everyone along". Modi acknowledged SP patriarch's praise with folded hands and later made a mention of Yadav's "blessings" in his speech.

The Samajwadi Party, which is led by Mulayam's son Akhilesh Yadav, has joined hands with the BSP in Uttar Pradesh to take on the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Here are the highlights of PM Modi's speech in Lok Sabha:
