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
