Addressing the media at the start of the Monsoon Session of Parliament 2023, PM Shri Narendra Modi said, “I believe that all respected Members of Parliament will come together and make the most beneficial use of this session for the welfare of the people”. It is essential to discuss in detail the responsibilities of Parliament and every Member of Parliament in enacting various laws, Shri Modi said.
The Prime Minister said:
This session holds immense importance in various ways because the bills being introduced in this session directly relate to the welfare of the people.
Today, as I stand among you in the temple of democracy, my heart is filled with sorrow and anger over the incident in Manipur. This incident is a shameful act for any civilized society.
The perpetrators of this sin, the wrongdoers, whoever they are, the entire nation is feeling ashamed. 140 crore citizens are feeling embarrassed.
I appeal to all Chief Ministers to strengthen law and order in their states, especially taking stringent steps to ensure the safety and protection of our mothers and sisters.
Whether the incident happens in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, or Manipur, in any corner of India, in any state government, rising above political disputes and maintaining the significance of the rule of law and the respect for women is crucial.
I want to assure the citizens of this country that no wrongdoer will be spared. Every step will be taken to ensure law forcefully with all its might.
What has happened to the daughters of Manipur can never be forgiven.
