New Delhi: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday reacted to the President's Address to the joint session of both Houses of Parliament and said that it is a tradition and the speech in reality represents the government's views.

"This is the tradition and it happens every time. We listen to the President. That is actually the speech of the Government," said Akhilesh Yadav.

Speaking on the same, Congress MP Pramod Tiwari lashed out at the centre and called it a tired, defeated and crippled government that lacks willpower, adding to that he said, "There is nothing for the benefit of the nation, how will this government function? There is nothing new they talk about. It seems that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has no regrets over the 2024 Lok Sabha election results."

Congress leader Imran Masood said that the President's address is all written up, adding to that he said, "Kejriwal is in jail. They (BJP) have put Hemant Soren as well in jail. It is no less than an emergency. The president's address is all written up. there is nothing big in it."
