Amid indications of a stormy start to the Budget session on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi cautioned Opposition leaders by saying that resentment is naturally generated in society against those who do not show interest in debate and discussion as people watch every activity of Parliament.
In his customary address before the Budget session began, Modi urged lawmakers to utilise Parliament's Budget Session for having a constructive debate, the Prime Minister said, “we have seen the mood in Parliament last time. Today, there is an awareness among the people in the country and all citizens watch the proceedings of Parliament very minutely.”
He further said that since nowadays the reach is huge for all small or big events of the country, everything reaches to common masses. “Due to this, a natural resentment is created in the society against those, who have  no interest in debate or discussion.”
The Prime Minister hoped that legislators will keep these public sentiments in mind and will utilise this session and participate in the debates that benefit Parliament, government and people.
Asking them to utilise this opportunity, he also reminded lawmakers that they would soon be going to their respective regions (for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls) where the people will evaluate them on their performance in Parliament.

Modi also added that his government was looking forward to discussing all issues.
