After a landslide victory in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, several newly elected MPs attended News Nation’s prestigious Hamari Sansad Sammelan on June 21. From seasoned ministers such as Smriti Irani, Prakash Javadekar, Narendra Singh Tomar to first-time MPs Tejaswi Surya, Shankar Lalwani and Rajkumar Chahar, all the leaders stressed on the fact that the people’s mandate is most important for them and they understand their sentiments and would work accordingly. The highlight of the event was giant-killer Union Minister Smriti Irani’s grand finale session.

The Hamari Sansad Sammelan witnessed a fiery start with a debate between BJP’s Shahnawaz Hussain and RJD’s Raghuvansh Prasad Singh. From Bihar’s Encephalitis deaths, the issue of black money to national security, the two engaged in a powerful discussion.

Another interesting session was that of the first-time MPs, where the BJP leaders revealed the roadmap for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya after the Supreme Court verdict. They reiterated the fact that they are committed to building the Ram Temple and stressed that there was no question of diluting or changing the party's stand.

Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, one of the key speakers at the Hamari Sansad Sammelan, said that no one can stop the construction of Ram Temple. Similarly, Union Minister for Minority Affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that Ram is part of Indian culture and saying 'Jai Shri Ram' not communal.

In the run-up of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the political dynasty had become a key issue, with all the mainstream political parties, including the BJP and the Congress accusing each other of giving casteism and dynasty politics to the country. Of the total 539 winners in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019, over 150 belong to some or the other powerful political family of the country. The third session of the Hamari Sansad Sammelan, BJP MPs Parvesh Verma and Ashok Kumar Yadav deliberated on the ongoing dynasty politics in Parliament.

Jaya Prada, the yesteryear’s movie star and politician, who lost her Lok Sabha battle to Samajwadi Party’s Azam Khan in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur took centrestage in the Session 4 and made stunning revelations about her struggles as a woman in Indian politics. Talking to News Nation’s Ajay Kumar, Jaya Prada broke down as she recalled her struggles with the moment when she wanted to commit suicide. Jaya Prada revealed that her then party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav “never bothered to call even once.”

Lauding Hamari Sansad, Jaya Prada said that, “I have come on a TV show for the first time after polls. Feeling proud to be on News Nation.”

In Session 5 of Hamari Sansad Sammelan, Minority Affairs Ministry Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said he will work with the mantra of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas”, adding that priority will be given to “3Es”-education, employment and empowerment - for development of minorities.

From farmers' distress to the economic slowdown, the second term of Modi government has to tackle issues at a massive scale. In the 6th session, Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar vowed to work for the welfare and development of the farmers in India.

Talking to News Nation’s Deepak Chaurasia during Hamari Sansad Sammelan’s Session 7, Prakash Javadekar said that India will be the fourth leading economy in the world. The statement comes at a time when there are reports coming in that Modi government has set up two Cabinet committees to deal with the two crucial issues.

In the recently concluded General elections, celebrity politics took centrestage with political parties banking on film stars and cricketers, who too tried their luck in the arena of politics. Session 8 had BJP winners Hans Raj Hans and Ravi Kishan speaking about what exactly is Modi magic and how it worked for them.

In the grand finale Session 9 of the Hamari Sansad Sammelan, Smriti Irani, talking to News Nation’s Deepak Chaurasia, said that the BJP convinced Amethi about true path of development. Taking a dig at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and talking about her spectacular success in Amethi, Irani said that, “Amethi ki janta jeeti, Smriti Irani nahi.

Speaking about the massive success of the Hamari Sansad Sammelan, Abhay Ojha, President – Sales & Marketing News Nation Network said, “Giant-slayer of 2019 Lok Sabha Elections Smriti Irani exclusively came for the News Nation event. This is a big thing for our channel. We are now going to organise a Budget conclave and I am sure it will be as successful as this.”
