New Delhi: In rare cases, a word from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech in Rajya Sabha has been deleted from the records.

Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu had the floor that Modi used on Thursday in response to the discussion on a motion that thanked the President for speaking to the joint session of the two chambers of Parliament at the beginning of the budgetary session.

"The chairman was pleased to publish a specific part of the Rajya Sabha trial on February 6, around 6:20 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.," the Rajya Sabha Secretariat said.

Naidu routinely wipes out any remark that is not accurate from Rajya Sabha's records after working through the day's procedures. This has been done several times, but rarely a remark from Modi has been dismissed.

Modi made the remark when he launched a strong defense of the National Population Register (NPR) that it would be updated with demographic information to better align government welfare systems. He had aimed to reverse the opposition congress, claiming the party brought the NPR in 2010 and was updated later in 2015 with the addition of photos and biometric information.

Naidu also dismissed a word from opposition leader and high-level congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad after Modi ended his speech.

Azad had said Congress approves of granting citizenship to persecuted migrants from Pakistan, but refuses to draft a religion-based law.
