An excerpt from Late Pramod Mahajan's speech on No Confidence motion.
Pramod Mahajan was a former Indian statesman who was known for his astute strategies and was behind major technological revolutions in India.
Recently we got to visit the country of China for a certain political affair.The delegates out there were very much interested to know about the state of democracy in India.I must say that times have changed.Earlier the communist party used to come to India on the invitation of the communist party of India.Nowadays the Chinese communist party wants to come to India on the invitation of BJP since they know that the communist party in India have nothing left in them so it would be better if they make relations with new parties.Lets leave that aside for now.So we were in China and people asked us about the state of democracy in India.So I told them that I am Pramod Mahajan.I am a member of the Lok Sabha and I belong to the single largest party and I am in the opposition.Then I pointed out towards Mr.Panigrahi.I said he belongs to the second largest party , but he is outside the goverment supporting it.The I pointed out towards him and said that he is the member of the third largest party , but he inside the front but outside the government.Then I said , look at him , he is Mr.Ramakant Khalap . He is the only member of his party and he is the government!
