Rahul Gandhi's first speech in the Lok Sabha after his reinstatement as an MP came on Wednesday, the second day of the no-confidence motion debate.

Rahul Gandhi's much-awaited speech in the Lok Sabha on the no-confidence motion started at 12.10pm on Wednesday in which the Wayanad MP thanked Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla for reinstating him as the member of the Lok Sabha, and also apologised for his last speech in which he mentioned Adani. “In my last speech in the House, I spoke about Adani. I might have hurt many people. So I apologise…today I want to tell my friends in the BJP that there is no reason to be scared today as my main speech will not be around Adani. Yes, I will obviously throw some brickbats,” Rahul Gandhi said.
