President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday addressed the Joint Sitting of both Houses of Parliament on Friday ahead of Budget session. He said that “Our constitution expects from this Parliament and every member present in this House to fulfill the hopes and aspirations of the countrymen and make necessary laws for them, keeping national interest paramount.”

“The mature way in which the countrymen behaved after the Supreme Court’s decision on Ramjanmabhoomi is also praiseworthy,” he added. He also said that “My government is clearly of the view that mutual discussions and debates further strengthen democracy. At the same time, any kind of violence in the name of protest weakens the society and the country.”
