"There are attacks on Dalits and minorities and Adivasis. But, the prime minister never says anything. When these attacks happen, the prime minister should address the nation and tell us what is in his heart," Gandhi said.
"It is being observed by people abroad that India is unable to protect our women. This has never happened in the history. This is for the first time that India has gained such a reputation."
Gandhi also attacked BJP president Amit Shah and said he along with Modi can not afford to lose power.
"The prime minister and the president of the BJP simply can not afford to lose power. The moment they lose power, other processes will start against them. Hence, there is fear, there is anger. This anger is being passed onto the country," Gandhi said.
Lok Sabha is set to vote on the motion later in the day. PM Narendra Modi will also address the parliament before the vote.Follow Moneycontrol's live blog to stay updated on the discussion on the no-confidence motion.
