New Delhi: Prime Minister NarendraModi on Monday lashed out at the Opposition for creating a ruckus and preventing him from introducing newly- inducted Union ministers in LokSabha and RajyaSabha, saying such a "negative mindset" has never been seen in Parliament.

As the Prime Minister rose in LokSabha to introduce the new ministers, Opposition members created an uproar by raising slogans.

Dismayed over the disruption, Modi said, it should make everyone proud that several women, many people belonging to the SC and ST community have taken oath as ministers.

"It seems some people cannot digest that more women, SC, ST and OBC community members are becoming ministers", Modi said, and noted that several new ministers are children of farmers and also belong to OBC communities,

In RajyaSabha also, the Prime Minister could not introduce the newly-inducted ministers as several slogan-shouting opposition members trooped into the well of the House to protest over various issues.

The Prime Minister slammed the Opposition over it, echoing the views expressed by him in LokSabha.

"It is a matter of pride that people from rural India, who come from ordinary families have taken oath as ministers. But some people don't want ministers to be introduced. They also have an anti-women mindset since they do not want women ministers to be introduced to the House," he said.

"Such a negative mindset has never been seen in Parliament," Modi said in RajyaSabha.

Earlier, talking to reporters, he hoped that the session is productive and dedicated to meaningful discussions, Modi said the government is fully prepared to give the answers that the people of the country want.

"I urge all MPs and political parties to ask the toughest and sharpest of questions but they should also allow the government to respond in a cordial environment as democracy is strengthened by conveying the truth to the people," Modi said adding that this enhances the trust of the people and improves the pace of development.
