New Delhi, 18th Sept. Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Monday that while this Parliament session is short, it is full with “historic decisions.”
In remarks to the media ahead of the five-day session, Modi noted that Parliament will move to the new building on Tuesday, and he urged MPs to join proceedings with renewed vigor while shedding old flaws, an apparent reference to frequent protests by opposition members during previous sessions, which caused disruptions.
He emphasized India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission, the “unprecedented” success of its G20 presidency, the launch of the “PM Vishwakarma Mission,” and the inauguration of the international convention centre Yashobhoomi, claiming that many developments have inspired and filled the country with pride.
There is a festive and enthusiastic spirit, and the country has been imbued with increased self-confidence, he said, urging MPs to devote as much time as possible to the brief session.
There will be plenty of time for “rona dhona” (whining), he said, in an apparent jibe at the opposition’s criticism of the government over the unusually timed session.
The 75-year journey will now continue from a new starting point, the prime minister stated, inviting members to join with renewed resolve, enthusiasm, and confidence.
He stated that the country must be developed by 2047, and that all new decisions for this will henceforth be made in the new building.
It would be a useful session, he added, adding that the relocation to the new building will take place on Ganesh Chaturthi, and Lord Ganesha is known as the God who eliminates all impediments.
There will be no obstacle in India’s development journey and the country will fulfil all its resolves and dreams, the prime minister said.
Citing success of India’s moon mission, he said it will bring innumerable possibilities and opportunities to the country’s doorstep. It is a source of inspiration and pride, he added.
Referring to the success of the G20, he said it reflected India’s true federal spirit as events were held in over 60 cities. It became a celebration of India’s diversity, he said.
It will also give pride to India that it became the voice of Global South, with the African Union being admitted as a member. The Summit declaration was adopted unanimously, an indication of India’s bright future, he asserted.
