Lok Sabha Speaker and Chairperson of India Region of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Sumitra Mahajan today strongly advocated the approach for universal development, saying there should not be any politics on the issue and it must be achieved with cooperation of all.
Ms Mahajan while inaugurating the 6th conference of India Region CPA here, which is being organised for the first time in Bihar, said all efforts should be made for sustainable development. Only achieving the stage of being developed was not important, it should be ensured that development could remain sustainable, she added.
“We can adopt the approach for universal development with justice to all”, Ms Mahajan said adding that this goal could be achieved only with cooperation of all and there should not be any politics over the issue.
The Lok Sabha Speaker, in her philosophical note, said rains did not discriminate in any region on any line and in the same mode, development should also reach every corner without any sort of discrimination.
CPA had sustainable development as its important agenda and all parliamentarians should work hard without being affected by their political consideration to achieve the goal of universal development, she suggested.
