Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha during discussion on 250th session of the House stated that the house has seen many historic moments ranging from Triple Talaq bill to GST. Speaking in Upper House, PM Modi said, "This house has seen many historic moments, it has made history also and has seen history being made as well. It is a far-sighted house. The Rajya Sabha gives an opportunity to people away from electoral politics to contribute to the country and its development." "Whenever it has been about good of the nation, Rajya Sabha has risen to the occasion. It was widely believed that Triple Talaq bill would not pass here but it did. Even GST became a reality after it was passed in this house."
