Regarding the deadlock in the parliament by the opposition, the PM has expressed hope that the session will start from Tuesday.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said that he has personally talked to the opposition leaders and all of them have assured him individually to let the house function.
"We also want a discussion, before President's address, a discussion should take place," Pralhad Joshi said.
"They (opposition) are blaming that government is not answering but how will the government answer if the house is not working," he added.
Regarding the budget, the PM said that it is for the first time in history that no one is able to call it a political budget even if it is presented just before the elections. The poor are at the centre of this budget.
