He also issued a warning to the opposition, advising them not to disturb the proceedings. “I hope the MPs who are in the habit of ripping apart democratic values will self-introspect on what they did in their term as members of Parliament,” said the PM.
The Prime Minister further stated that the country is reaching new heights of success and that its journey of “inclusive and all-round” development will continue with the people’s blessings.
He noted that the first session in the new Parliament building ended with the passage of the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam Bill, also known as the Women’s Reservation Bill.
He stated, “Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam was passed during the first session of the new Parliament. On January 26, the country witnessed women’s strength and valor at Kartavya Path. President Droupadi Murmu’s instruction later today, followed by Nirmala Sitharaman’s presentation of the interim Budget tomorrow, would be like a festival of women’s empowerment.”
The Budget Session of Parliament, the final of the current Lok Sabha, will begin at 11 a.m. with an address by President Droupadi Murmu to a joint sitting. All eyes will be on the President’s address and the interim budget presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 1, which are expected to provide a peep into the ruling BJP’s plan for the Lok Sabha elections in April-May.
