PM Modi in Lok Sabha: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Parliament during the Motion of Thanks on the matter of Ram Temple resolution today (February 10). This is the last session of the current Lok Sabha before the general elections, which are likely to be held in April-May 2024. The budget session was initially scheduled to conclude on February 9 (Friday) and has been extended by a day.

PM Modi said, “These five years were about reform, perform and transform in the country. It is very rare that both reform and perform take place and we can see transformation right in front of our eyes. The country is experiencing this through the 17th Lok Sabha and I firmly believe that the country will continue to bless the 17th Lok Sabha.”

“17th Lok Sabha has 97 per cent productivity, it was over 100 per cent in seven sessions,” PM Modi added. PM said in LS that many game-changing reforms which will lay the foundation of strong India took place in the last five years. 

PM Modi also said during this Lok Sabha’s term, decisions for which many generations waited for long were taken, cites repeal of Article 370. He cites decisions to criminalise instant triple talaq, the passage of women reservation bill to praise the outgoing Lok Sabha. 

“People of Jammu and Kashmir were devoid of social justice. Today, we are satisfied that we have brought social justice to the people of Jammu amd Kashmir in line with our commitment to social justice. Terrorism had become like a thorn, shooting bullets into the chest of the country. We formed strict laws against terrorism. I am of the firm belief that people who suffer through issues like this will receive strength like this,” PM added.
