The Budget session commenced with the address of President Mumru to the joint sitting of both Houses of Parliament. In her maiden address, Murmu highlighted the government’s achievements and policy priorities.

“By 2047, we have to build a nation that will be connected to the pride of the past and which will have all the golden chapters of modernity. We have to build an India that will be 'Aatmanirbhar' and capable to fulfill its humanitarian duties,” President said.
