He said that that such an atmosphere of hate was not welcome for our planet.
Prime Minister further assured that the government was approaching the issue of farm laws with an open mind. He said that the government’s stand was the same as it was on January 22, and the proposal regarding the suspension of farm laws given by the Agriculture Minister still stands.

On references made by the leaders on the unfortunate incident on Republic Day 2021, PM Modi, during all-party meeting, said that the law will take its own course.
Prime Minister said that the government was open to detailed discussion on issues raised by the leaders in the meeting. He further reaffirmed the importance of smooth functioning of Parliament and comprehensive debates on the Floor of the House.
He added that frequent disruptions mean smaller parties suffer as they can’t express themselves adequately. He said that it is for the bigger parties to ensure that Parliament functions smoothly, there are no disruptions and thus, the smaller parties are able to voice their views in Parliament.
Also, he highlighted the role that India can play to further global good in many sectors. He referred to the skills and prowess of our people, which can be a force multiplier for global prosperity.
