New Delhi: The Winter Session of Parliament is approaching, and seeing its importance on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the floor leaders to give more opportunities to young members of Parliament, saying that this is their main concern whenever he meets with them: they are prevented from speaking in the House due to interruptions.
PM Modi emphasised the significance of the upcoming Winter Session, highlighting India’s opportunity to lead the G-20. Receiving the G20 Presidency is a huge opportunity because of how India has established itself in the global community, how expectations have grown with India, and how India is increasing its participation on international platforms.
PM Modi went on to say that all efforts will be made during this session to make critical decisions that will propel the country to new heights of development, while also creating new opportunities to push the country forward in light of the current global situation.
PM Modi urged all party leaders and floor leaders to extend more time to new members of parliament for the sake of democracy’s future.
Newly elected MPs have complained that they don’t get to learn from Parliament due to adjournments of sessions. Young parliamentarians generally don’t get the chance to speak.
The same issue is with the opposition leaders because they are deprived of speaking, due to disturbance in the parliament. “I expect all our leaders, floor leaders will understand the pain of our MPs,” PM Modi said.
