NEW DELHI: Anticipating a fiery beginning to the Winter session over the demonetisation issue, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, minutes before the House convened on Wednesday, said his government was ready to discuss all issues, while expressing hope for contribution from all political parties in completing the legislative agenda.

“I hope this session will also see a healthy debate on various issues as it sets the stage for very good decisions... Of course, parties would present their views,” said Modi, while addressing the media
outside Parliament House. He hoped that discussion will take place on all issues which are based on political ideologies of parties, the hopes and aspirations of the common man and the thinking of the government.

“All parties will have the best of contribution. Best of efforts will be made to take all parties along in completing the government business,” he said. “We are ready for an open debate which will lead
to good and important decisions,” he added.

While recalling the last session, he said an important decision on GST was taken in Parliament. “That day too, I had thanked all parties. When all parties work together for national interest, good decisions are taken and they are taken fast. It also gives good results,” he said.

He added that to take the GST issue forward, all State governments and parties they represent are holding regular meetings. Discussions on the issue have been underway even before the commencement of the session, he pointed out.
