Anurag denounces opposition for “complete elimination” of monsoon session from Parliament
Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Singh Thakur on Sunday criticized Congress and other opposition parties for completely wiping out the monsoon session of parliament.
The Union Minister, at a press conference in Dharamshala on the third day of his Jan Ashirwad Yatra, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished to introduce his newly appointed and promoted ministers to parliament.
In addition to that, discussions were to take place on important issues related to the popular masses, Thakur said.
“However, the opposition parties do not want the parliament to function well,” he said, adding that the opposition had not let the session go because Modi’s cabinet is the youngest in this day in which all sections, including women, received place.
Thakur called Dharamshala his second home and said that whatever he accomplished, Kangra district and Dharamshala made a great contribution to it.
Dharamshala is a sports city and the Union government will still try to expand facilities for athletes, he added. He said that in addition to sport, his priority will be to promote the art and culture of Himachal in the country and around the world.
Thakur said the Modi government donated valuable health projects ??4000 crore in Himachal, including AIMMS, six medical schools and an PGI satellite center.
He said that to prevent the third wave of Covid-19, pediatric facilities are also being strengthened by spending ??23,123 crores.
On the issue of a proposed water sports center at Pong Dam Lake, Thakur said the sport is a matter of state. He said that programs like Khelo India, school games, college games and college games have played a big role in improving the performance of athletes.
