Speaking with the media outside Parliament building ahead of the Winter Session, he said the session was a "golden opportunity" for the opposition

"The country has rejected negativity. We always have dialogue with opposition friends at the start of session, we always seek cooperation of everyone. This time also all such processes have been completed," he said

This "temple of democracy" is a very important platform for people's aspirations and strengthening foundation of developed India, PM Modi said and urged all members to come well prepared and called for a thorough discussion on bills so that good suggestions come to the fore

But if discussion does not take place, the country misses those things, PM Modi said

"If I speak on basis of the assembly poll results, this is a golden opportunity for opposition friends. Instead of making plans for venting frustration over defeat, they should learn from this defeat, leaving behind the habit of negativity of the last nine years, if they move forward with positivity this session, the country will change its perspective towards them. A new door could open for them," he said

"They are in the opposition but still I am giving them good advice," he added

PM Modi urged the opposition to come forward with a positive mindset

"Everyone's future is bright, there is no need to lose hope but please don't vent the frustration of the defeats suffered outside inside Parliament. There would be frustration and disappointment, also your colleagues would need to show their strength but don't make this temple of democracy that platform," the prime minister said

"I say on the basis of my experience, I would say change your (opposition) direction a bit, leave the habit of opposing for the sake of opposing. Support constructive things that are in country's interest, debate the shortcomings that are there and you will see that the hatred among the people over such things, that may change into love," he said
