New Delhi: Ahead of the Monsoon Session of Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged the Members to indulge in detailed discussions to make the session “fruitful”.
He noted that the House has always been considered as an efficient medium of communication, a pilgrimage centre where dialogues and discussions can take place with an open mind.
The Prime Minister said: “Debates, criticism and a detailed analysis of things also take place to make a very positive contribution to policies and decisions. I would urge all the respected MPs to make the House as much productive and fruitful as possible with deep thinking and a deep and detailed discussion. That’s why everyone should co-operate and democracy thrives only through everyone’s efforts.”
“The House functions because of collective efforts. It is with the efforts of everyone that the House takes the best decision. And therefore, while fulfilling our duties to enhance the dignity of the House, we should make the most of this session in the national interest.”
Monsoon Session of Parliament got underway on Monday. “This session is also crucial because elections to the posts of President and the Vice-President are being held at the same time. Voting is also underway today. And in this period, the tenure of the new President and the new Vice-President will also begin,” he said.
Mentioning that this session has a connection with weather, he said, “Now monsoon is fast approaching in Delhi too. Yet the temperature outside is not dropping and I am not sure if the heat inside the House will also subside or not.”
