Beginning from India's stumbling economy to burning issues of rapes in the country -- Modi did not leave a single stone unturned while addressing the House. While he did not forget to appreciate the growth story of a small state like Sikkim, he also praised his arch rival, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

He also welcomed criticism and suggestion from other parties saying, "Whatever suggestions we got from parties, I do not consider it as criticism but as a guidance."
Modi, who has already won hearts of Indians during his election campaigns, once again touched the people of the country with his maiden speech in the Parliament. Micro-blogging site Twitter went abuzz with praises for Modi.
