DD News
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called on leaders of all political parties to work cohesively with the government in running Parliament smoothly and collectively address issues related to the welfare of people.

He said, government is always receptive to the issues raised by Political Parties and is ready to discuss issues of national importance in Parliament. 


Mr Modi said this while addressing floor leaders of various parties in the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha in New Delhi today, ahead of the Budget Session of Parliament beginning tomorrow. He welcomed newly elected MPs and expressed hope that fresh zeal and energy will be infused in the functioning of the Parliament. Mr Modi said, all parties must keep political differences aside and commit themselves to tirelessly work in the direction of Nation's progress.

Prime Minister urged all leaders to introspect whether members of Parliament are able to fulfill peoples’ aspirations as their representatives. He exhorted all leaders to cooperate with the Government and strive in the direction of making a New India by 2022 and achieve the true meaning of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas. He said, the MPs are for the people, they cannot win hearts by disrupting the functioning of  Parliament.  There was a consensus across party lines on ensuring smooth functioning of  Parliament without disruptions.


Briefing media after the meeting, the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi said, the Prime Minister will hold meeting with all party Presidents on the 19th of this month on the issue of One Nation, One Election. He said, Mr Modi will also meet all the MPs on 20th. Mr Joshi hoped this session of Parliament will be productive.
