Modi assures discussion on important issues

New Delhi: Reaching out to the Opposition, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday said the government would try and ensure that all important issues are discussed in the budget session of parliament.

"I had a meeting with the leaders of allies yesterday (Sunday) and listened to their views. We will try that every important issue in the budget session is discussed," Modi told reporters outside parliament house shortly before the commencement of the budget session.

The prime minister said that the budget session is an important opportunity for every government as well as for the country.

"This session is an important occasion for the government and the country as the expectations and aspirations of the common man are reflected in the budget. I am sure the session will be held in a spirit of cooperation and cordiality," he said.

The budget session is crucial for the government as half a dozen ordinances, which have to be replaced by relevant laws, are lined up.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu had organised an all-party meeting ahead of the budget session Sunday. The meeting was attended by Modi, who had appealed for the smooth functioning of the house.

Naidu had also met Congress president Sonia Gandhi and sought her cooperation in ensuring the smooth running of parliament.
