The Prime Minister said that the government is open to detailed discussion on issues raised by the leaders in the meeting.

He reaffirmed the importance of smooth functioning of Parliament and comprehensive debates on the Floor of the House.

He added that frequent disruptions mean smaller parties suffer as they can’t express themselves adequately.

He said that it is for the bigger parties to ensure that Parliament functions smoothly, there are no disruptions and thus, the smaller parties are able to voice their views in Parliament.

The Prime Minister highlighted the role India can play to further global good in many sectors.

He referred to the skills and prowess of our people, which can be a force multiplier for global prosperity.

Earlier, in the meeting chaired by the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Coal and Mines Pralhad Joshi said that the Government is always ready to discuss on the floor of the Parliament any issue, as permitted under Rules of Procedure.

He assured that though the Session will mainly be devoted to the Financial Business relating to Union Budget for 2021-22 and discussion on the Motion of Thanks on President’s Address, essential Legislative and other Business will also be taken up during the Session.

Joshi further informed that four Bills replacing Ordinances promulgated during the inter-session period are required to be enacted as Acts of Parliament within a period of six weeks from the reassembly of Parliament.

He said that the Union Budget for 2021-22 will be presented to Lok Sabha on Monday at 11.00 A.M.
