The Centre was recently targetted by the Opposition for delaying the winter session allegedly in the wake of Gujarat Assembly Elections.

"And I believe that in this Winter Session, that is beginning in 2017 and will continue in 2018, several important issues of the government, that have far reaching impact, will be brought before the Parliament", Modi said.

Ahead of the winter session, the Leader of Opposition, Ghulam Nabi Azad criticising the Prime Minister for making allegations on Manmohan Singh for conspiring with Pakistan and influence the Gujarat Polls, demanded a clarification during the session.

The prime minister said on Thursday at 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.

At a meeting of top NDA leaders, Modi asked the ruling alliance to strongly push the government's legislative agenda in the Winter Session of Parliament, sources said.
