New Delhi/IBNS: As the budget session of Parliament is beginning on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the session should be centred mostly on nation's and world's economy.

"The session should be centred on economy and how India can derive benefits from the current situation of world economy. The session should focus in strengthening the country's economy," said the Prime Minister.

Also he added in saying, "We hope economic issues and how people can be empowered will be discussed in this session."

The union government will present its annual budget on Saturday.

The budget session is beginning at a time the Centre is facing widespread criticisms from the Opposition over the falling economy as the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) fell to 4.5% in the immediate last quarter. 

Also the Modi government is facing massive protests over the new contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) which aims to give citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi but not Muslim refugees who came to India from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh before 2015.
