Country loses the most due to disruptions in Parliament: PM

NEW DELHI: The Government has the least to lose due to disruptions in Parliament and it is the country which loses the most, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said while stressing on effective functioning of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

He also said it is the duty of each parliamentarian to lend voice to the problems of the common man in Parliament and force the Government to take steps for their welfare.

The Prime Minister was speaking at an event at the central hall of Parliament to confer the best parliamentarian awards for the years 2014 to 2017.

“It is important for MPs to express the voice of the poor and the marginalised. Sadly, when there is noise and chaos in the House, MPs are not able to speak and the loss is of the entire nation,” he said.  (AGENCIES)
