Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday described the Budget session of Parliament as a “winner” for the Treasury benches, saying the BJP put up an impressive show in the recent State polls while the government was able to secure passage of many key Bills.Addressing the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting a day before the session ends, Mr. Modi also pitched for pushing reform and development agenda. He asserted that there is a “positive” public mood in the favour of the ruling dispensation as it completes its third anniversary the next month.This is a golden opportunity for us to lift the lives of the poor, the deprived...This is the time for doing more development and reforms,” he said.The BJP MPs were also informed about a one-month programme to celebrate the government’s third anniversary from May 24. Briefing reporters after the meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said Mr. Modi called the session very constructive, with the Lok Sabha passing 21 Bills and the Rajya Sabha 14. These include the GST Bills and also the politically important OBC Bill. The Prime Minister said the BJP notched up a massive win in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls during the session.

He said Hanumanji was an example of a “dedicated social worker”, which should inspire one and all.
