Prime Minister Narendra Modi said a strong foundation will be laid for the new decade in the Budget Session of the Parliament and hoped there will be good debates in both the houses on the Indian economy.

Addressing the media before the start of the session, Modi said that he wanted a vast and qualitative discussion on financial issues in both the houses. "We all should make sure that in this session, we lay a strong foundation for this decade.

"This session should be focused mainly on economic issues. I want there to be good debates on these issues in both houses,” PM Modi said on the first day of the budget session.

Chief Economic Adviser KV Subramanian has presented the Economic Survey 2020 in Parliament today. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will put forth the Union Budget 2020-21 on Saturday.

"Our government has emphasized the empowerment of Dalits, marginalised, oppressed, women, etc. We will continue to work for them in this decade also," he said.

"Our aim should be to improve our economic activity and to take maximum advantage of the global environment. I want there to be good debates on both the economy and the empowerment of people. I hope that the quality of discussions gets better day by day in both houses," he said.

The first phase of the session will conclude on Feb. 11, while the second part of the session will begin from March 2 and will end on April 3.
