Budget Session 2020: Hoping for detailed discussions on economy, empowerment of people, says PM Modi
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that he hopes for a detailed discussion on the economy and the empowerment of people ahead of the Budget Session of parliament starting from today.
"I want wide-ranging, qualitative discussion on economy in both houses. Our session should be focused on economic matters and how India can take advantage of the current global economic situation," said PM Modi in his customary remarks at the start of a session.
He also mentioned that since it is the first session of the new decade, this is an opportunity to lay a "strong foundation for the decade".
He added: "Our government's effort has been to empower Dalits, women, those who face exploitation... we want to continue efforts."
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi made these remarks, the Opposition party members protested in the other section of the Parliament against the CAA which was passed in the previous session last month, and the National Register for Citizens (NRC).
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be presenting the Budget 2020 on Saturday. It is crucial as the Indian economy is reeling under the worse economic slowdown.
