PM Modi urges MPs to not let politics, polls affect Budget session
On Monday, while addressing the media at Parliament before the start of the Budget Session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to all political parties to extend their full cooperation in the smooth functioning of the Budget Session 2022-2023 and said that this session should not be hampered by the impending Assembly elections.
The session is being held in the midst of crucial Assembly elections in five states, including Uttar Pradesh.
PM Narendra Modi said, “Debates with an open mind during this budget session by the MPs could be a great opportunity. I hope all parties will hold talks with an open mind for India’s progress.”
He added, “The budget session sketches the one-year expenditure of the government which is important as it prepares the roadmap of development of the nation and its people, therefore the good and detailed discussion will pave the way for the nation’s economic growth to newer heights.”
PM Modi said that the budget session is important for the nation as, after two years of the pandemic, all will have to work together to make the life of the common man easier.
“I hope all MPs, political parties will have quality discussions with an open mind and help take the country on the path to development,” He said.
PM Modi also said that the world in the pandemic is looking towards India with hopes, as in the last two years the government extended help to several nations on humanitarian grounds. “Our vaccines proved to be a lifeline for thousands of people around the world,” he said.
Opposition parties are likely to raise the Pegasus snooping allegations, farmers’ issues, and the border row with China in the Budget session of Parliament.
