New Delhi: National Conference (NC) MP Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday lauded the President Droupadi Murmu’s address to MPs of Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha ahead of the commencement of the Budget Session of the Parliament, hailing it as a “good address”.
“It was good. It was a good address,” Abdullah told ANI. However, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said that the President’s address reiterates Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s stand.
“President’s address reiterates what government wants and does. Naturally, the President presents the government’s statement. Still, we respect the President’s Address. When discussion on the Address will be done in the House, we’ll present our views,” the senior Congress party leader told ANI.
Pointing that there was no mention of the unemployment issue in the President’s Address, Chowdhury said that the citizens can see only the failures of the government.
“There are a lot of issues against the government. We’ll raise these issues in Parliament one after another. There was nothing on unemployment in President’s Address. We and the citizens can see only the failures of the Govt. They only speak but don’t do,” he said.
President Droupadi Murmu earlier today addressed the joint session of the Parliament ahead of the commencement of the Budget Session.

Wherever there is political instability anywhere in the world, those countries are surrounded by a massive crisis. But due to the decisions my government took in the national interest, India is in a better position as compared to other countries.”
