PM asks all parties to participate in dialogue on One nation One Election

DD News
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called upon all political parties to participate in dialogue on one nation one election to save time and money for development.

Talking about electoral reforms, Mr Modi said Indian voters are mature and cannot undermine their wisdom. Prime Minister was replying to the debate on Motion of Thanks to the President's Address in Rajya Sabha yesterday.

He appealed all Members of Parliament to work together to fulfill aspirations of people who elected them. Mr Modi said, Opposition should allow the Lok Sabha to function seamlessly. Mr Modi advised the Congress to shun arrogance of its majority in Rajya Sabha as people have given the incumbent government a huge mandate. 

The Prime Minister said, India is aiming to become a five trillion Dollar economy and appealed to all states to take part in the economic development of the country. Mr Modi said the Opposition have problems with technology, digital transactions, Aadhaar and GST. Mr Modi advised it to allow the technological changes, rather seeing them with negativity. 

The Prime Minister said there should be a uniform yardstick for all acts of violence, whether it takes place in Jharkhand, West Bengal, or Kerala. He termed the Jharkhand lynching incident as painful and said the guilty should be given a harsh punishment. He, however, said that calling Jharkhand as a hub of lynching and mob violence is unfair and an insult to the state.

Taking inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Year of Birth Anniversary and 75th Year of Independence, Mr. Modi appealed to the people to adopt small changes in life and work to inspire a big revolution. 

Mr Modi termed Ayushman Bharat as a revolution in health services to the poor. He said, deaths of children in Bihar due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome is unfortunate. However, Mr. Modi expressed solidarity with the state government and confidence that country will collectively come out of this crisis soon.
