Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday hoped the winter session of Parliament will be a productive one with constructive debates and innovative suggestions that will help resolve the country’s problems.

The government is expected to table 25 pending bills and 14 new ones, including a bill providing Muslim women the right to seek maintenance in case of triple talaq, during the session which begins on Friday.

“The winter session of Parliament is starting and I am confident that it will be a productive session. I hope there is good debate, constructive debate and we come up with innovative solutions to our nation’s problems,” he told reporters here.

The prime minister said at Thursday’s all-party meeting, leaders of the political parties were clear that there is a need to take the country forward and this session should be used positively to achieve that.

“I hope this Parliament session contributes to the nation’s growth,” he said.
