Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday urged all lawmakers to utilise the Budget session of Parliament in a constructive manner and said that those legislators who do not take interest in discussions, have anger brewing against them in the society.
“Small things reach the common man. Those who do not have interest in discussions, resentment is generated against them in the society,” he said.
“I hope legislators will keep these sentiments in mind and will utilise this session and participate in the debates that benefit Parliament, benefit government and people, and make use of the opportunity,” Modi said.
He said his government’s mantra is ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ and the same spirit will be seen in Parliament. He further said, “Today, the country is observing the proceedings of the Parliament. The MPs should hold a meaningful debate in this session of the Parliament.”
“We are looking forward to discussing all issues,” the Prime Minister said. The budget session kick starts today with the President of India addressing a joint session of the parliament.
The Prime Minister said that the session should be used towards having ‘constructive debates’ and assured the opposition that the government was ready to discuss every issue.
All eyes are on the NDA government as it is all set to present the crucial budget tomorrow ahead of the general elections slated to be held in a few months. While Arun Jaitley is unwell, Piyush Goyal who has been given the charge of the Finance ministry will present the budget tomorrow.
