Prime Minister Narendra Modi urges Oppn celebrated the start of Parliament’s monsoon session by asking Opposition members to raise “the toughest and sharpest issues” in the House, but also to enable the government to answer in a “controlled climate.”
Modi urges Oppn also invited floor leaders from all parties to a meeting with him on July 20 to discuss vaccine policy and COVID-19 pandemic management. Mr. Modi made the same offer during the all-party conference on Sunday, but opposition leaders refused, preferring a parliamentary debate to a “PowerPoint presentation.
” Prime Minister Modi’s statements to the media came just before the session began, which began with both Houses of Parliament being repeatedly postponed and adjourned for the day without the traditional introduction of newly sworn members in the council of ministers. “I would want to encourage all MPs and parties to ask the most challenging and pointed questions in the Houses, but they should also enable the administration to answer in a disciplined manner.
This will enhance democracy, increase people’s trust, and accelerate development,” According to Mr. Modi. “I hope that every aspect of the epidemic and our battle against it will be covered. I want to invite all floor leaders to a meeting tomorrow evening to hear about the pandemic scenario. It can also be debated on the House floor,” he said. The Prime Minister further urged everyone to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and carefully adhere to the regulations associated with it.
“The vaccine is administered through the ‘bahu (arm), and those who get it become ‘bahubalis’ (strongmen) in the fight against COVID-19. It’s being worked on. The epidemic has engulfed the whole globe.
As a result, we want serious debates in Parliament about it,” he added. The invitation for a special meeting on COVID-19 comes despite opposition leaders calling such a gathering “very unusual” and not by Parliament session standards.
