Apprehending a repeat of the washout in the Budget session with the Opposition blaming his government for it, Modi said he had always hoped and worked for smooth functioning of Parliament and would continue to do so.

"If any political party or any member wants a discussion on any issue, the government is ready," Modi said, stressing that his government is ready for any debate.

The more extensive the discussion in Parliament, the better it is for the country, he said, adding that good suggestions will help his government in decision-making.

Referring to the ongoing monsoon season, the prime minister said many parts of the country have suffered disasters due to rains while some others have received less rains as he called for a discussion on these matters.

Modi expressed the hope that MPs and parties will conduct themselves in an exemplary manner and inspire state assemblies.
