Prime Minister Narendra while addressing the media ahead of the five-day Parliament special session requested the opposition to keep its “rona dhona” (complaints, cribbing) aside and give time to the short but big-on-occasion session. He said that this session of the Parliament is that of historic decisions.
PM Modi said, “I request all MPs…the session is short…but give your time… rone dhone ke liye aur bhi bahut samay hai (There is plenty of time to crib and complaint).”
PM Modi highlighted the successful launch of Chandrayaan-3 and said that the Tricolour is flying on the moon, adding that, Shivshakti and Tiranga point are filling the nation with pride. He further said that such a success is associated with scientific advancements of the nation and also opens new door of opportunities.
He noted the “unprecedented” success of India’s G20 presidency and said that the G20 meeting was held at 50 locations. “This shows the federal structure and it celebrated India’s diversity, we became the voice of global South,” PM Modi added.
While G20 was a celebration of diversity, it also became a proof of India’s bright future with the inclusion of African Union (AU) as a permanent member in the G20 group and the achievement of a joint declaration.
Noting the inauguration of YashoBhoomi convention centre, the prime minister said that there is new confidence in the nation.
“Ye satra chota hai par bahut mulyawan hai (Though this session is short, it is very impactful),” PM Modi said, this session is of “historical decisions”.
The prime minister said, “We will make India a developed country by 2047,” adding that, “There will be no hindrance in India’s development”.
The prime minister said that all decisions for the goal of making India a developed country will be taken in the new Parliament. “All dreams of new India will be fulfilled now,” PM Modi concluded.
