Prime minister Narendra Modi has advised the members of parliament to sit for one more day in the session to discuss development issues. Addressing the Lok Sabha on Thursday, Modi said that there should be one week kept aside in two parliamentary sessions wherein only first time MPs can be invited to speak. “It is not because I am a first time MP. It will provide fresh air (read: thoughts, ideas) in the parliament sessions.”
“All MPs can sit on a Saturday, or extend sessions by a day, and discuss about India's role in achieving the sustainable development goals [of the United Nations],” the PM said. This should be done without any politics, purely on humanitarian and nationalistic lines (sirf manavta aur rashtraneeti ho), he added.
“The level of primary education in the country is a matter of concern,” Modi said, indicating it as one of the issues which can be taken up for discussion. Issues around water, delayed justice and huge case pendency in courts can be taken up and deliberated, he said. We can all call sit together to find a solution to these problems, he added.
“We can set the agenda well before six months, invite expert papers on the subject and debate those suggestions and take out actionable points,” Modi said.
