The First session of the 17th Lok Sabha will begin from Monday. During the Parliament session, the passage of the Union budget and key legislation such as triple talaq are likely to be on top of the to do list for the government.
A day before Parliament session, PM Narendra Modi held an all party meeting and also invited presidents of all parties, who have an MP either in the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha, to a meeting on June 19.
Highlighting the importance of the Opposition, the prime minister said, “The role of an active Opposition is important. The opposition need not bother about their numbers. I hope they will speak actively and participate in house proceedings.”
He said, “After several decades, a government has won an absolute majority for the second term. People have given us the chance to serve the country again. I request all the parties to support the decisions that are in favour of people.”
