The first phase of the Budget session will end on 9 February. It is a review of the developments in the country's economy over the previous one year.

"In the last session, it was our effort and the nation had high hopes that there won't be any politics on crucial issues like triple talaq so that Muslim women will get their rights".

The Centre hoped that the Lok Sabha will have productive session and listed a number of Bills for passage in both the Houses. During his address to the joint sitting of Parliament, Kovind made a pitch to conduct polls to the assembly and Parliament simultaneously.

Speaking about the upcoming budget, Modi said: "Budget session is important".

"Like the way parties passed the GST unanimously, we are requesting them to pass this Bill, which is going to ban the practice of instant triple talaq (Talaq-e-Biddat) among Muslims", he said.

The Opposition plans to counter the government on rising incidents of rapes, the alleged "attack" on constitutional institutions and the plight of traders. Kovind also dwelt upon the government's favourite topics such as doubling farmers' income by 2022 and benefits of Aadhaar, saying the initiative had helped the government in "eliminating middle-men" and save over Rs 57,000 crore.
