Every citizen is trying best to fulfil the dreams of the freedom fighters. It is a good sign for the future of the country. We saw on the Constitution Day that the people of India took oath to work for a better future.” He added, “In connection to Amrit Mahotsav, we want, the country wants, and every citizen wants that this session and all the sessions of the parliament run smoothly.”

While talking about how the parliament session should be, PM said, “The Parliament should find ways for the progress of the nation. The ideas and efforts should be for the long-term benefits of the country. We should find new ways and give new ideas for the same. The efforts of the members of the Parliament should be rated on the basis of their contributions to the betterment of the country and not on the basis of their efforts to startle the session in the Parliament.”
