Govt ready to discuss, reply on all issues in Parliament, says Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that his government is ready to reply to all questions in Parliament but asserted that the dignity of the house must be maintained. "The government is willing to answer every question. We want questions in Parliament and also peace.

Whatever voices are raised against the government or government policies - the dignity of Parliament and the Speaker's Chair should be upheld. We should maintain the sort of conduct that will inspire younger generations," PM Modi said in his traditional remarks ahead of a new session.

The Prime Minister also put out a warning on the new Covid variant 'Omicron', urging all MPs and others to be cautious "as everyone's health is a priority in this hour of crisis". We all should stay alert in view of the new variant of COVID-19, PM Modi said.
