The winter session of Parliament commenced today with a massive ruckus as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs raised fervent slogans of "Teesri Baar Modi Sarkar" and "Baar Baar Modi Sarkar" in Lok Sabha, ahead of the legislative proceedings. The session also witnessed a heated exchange between the ruling party and the Opposition, with the latter attempting to corner the BJP over the 'cash-for-query' case and demanding the expulsion of Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Mahua Moitra.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the house just a day after the BJP's triumph in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh, called for cooperation from the Opposition saying, "I have been urging for your (Opposition) cooperation in the House. Today, I also speak politically - it is beneficial for you too if you give a message of positivity to the country. It is not right for democracy if your image becomes that of hatred and negativity. Opposition is equally important for democracy, it should be equally capable."
In his address, PM Modi remarked, "If I speak on the basis of the recent elections' results, this is a golden opportunity for our colleagues sitting in the Opposition. Instead of taking out your anger of defeat in this session, if you go ahead with positivity and learn from the defeat and leave behind the tendency of negativity of the last 9 years, the country will change their point of view for them.
