Addressing parliament for the last time, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Friday the general elections would give people an opportunity to form a new sense of consensus that would take the country on new pathways. Singh said the Indian parliament, despite differences among members, has the capacity to rise above partisan strife on key matters. Singh, has already announced he will not seek a third term in office if the United Progressive Alliance is voted back into power. He said, passing the bill which carves out the new state of Telangana was an indication the country is capable of making tough decisions "without any rancor and without worrying too much about the pros and cons."
