Prime Minister Modi was speaking in a special discussion to mark the 250th session of the Rajya Sabha or upper house of parliament.

The prime minister was talking about the practice of members running to the center of the house and shouting slogans while raising protests in the house.
The praise for the NCP stands out at a time when Sharad Pawar is a major player in trying to unite the most unlikely of all Maharashtra alliances between Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress. And especially when Shiv Sena, the BJP's oldest ally, today officially sat on the opposition benches after having quarreled over sharing power in Maharashtra.
