New Delhi, Parliament: Prime Minister, NaMo, begins the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha assuring the opp. that it’s their views that counts and matters, not their numbers.
Addressing the media outside the Parliament on Monday, Modi reached out to the Opposition on the first day of the Monsoon Session and said that every word of the Opposition is valuable to the government. He urged all MPs to be impartial in the House and address issues related to the larger interest of the nation.
Talking about the newly constituted Lok Sabha, Modi said it is historic in various terms as the maximum number of women MPs have been elected to the lower house since the Independence. Modi said as this is the first session with new members, there will be a flow of new energy and a new enthusiasm will be reflected in the House to realise the aspirations of the people.
The speaker of the house is to be elected on Wednesday and the very next day at the joint house sitting of the two houses of parliament our Honorable President, Ram Nath Kovind, will be delivering his customary address.
The prime minister said his government worked on the principle of ‘sabka sath, sabka vikas‘ (with all, development for all) during his first term and people reposed their faith in it for a second time. As a result, a government has been re-elected with a clear majority after several decades, he said.
Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Pralhad Joshi, also said that the government and Opposition parties should work together for the welfare of the people.
