NEW DELHI: Lok Sabha on Wednesday passed by a voice vote the motion to thank the President for his address to both Houses of Parliament.

Soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi replied to the debate on the Motion of Thanks, Speaker Om Birla put all amendments moved by the opposition members for vote.

The amendments were rejected by a voice vote.

The Congress walked out of the House in protest during the Prime Minister's speech, while the DMK and the TMC too walked out later, saying they were not satisfied with Modi's reply.
