Mr Modi said, the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha has been a record-creating one and it was the most productive session since 1952. He said, it is not a minor achievement but, a historic turn for the better and one which will make the Parliament much more responsive to the needs and aspirations of the people. He added that many momentous initiatives have been taken such as pension schemes for farmers and traders, reform of the medical sector, important amendments in the Insolvency and Bankruptcy code and beginning of labour reforms.
