PM Modi attacks Congress, asks them to vow to allow Parliament to function in 2016

NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi on Thursday attacked Opposition party over the continuous disruption of the Parliament and asked Congress party to take a vow to allow the parliament to function.


Speaking at the foundation stone laying of ambitious Delhi-Meerut Expressway project, Modi said, “Those who ruled India for 60 years have no right to disrupt its functioning.”

The Prime Minister also asked Congress leaders to take a vow in the New Year to allow Parliament to function and not create hurdles in the country’s development.

However, reacting to Modi’s remark, Congress leader Anand Sharma said that the government’s arrogance did not let Parliament function.

He said, “While in Opposition, BJP opposed GST, Modi spearheaded the charge, we are the authors of GST.”

He also added that if PM had given up his confrontations mindset then there would have been better atmosphere inside and outside Parliament.

Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned sine die on December 23, marking the end of the Winter Session.

While the Lok Sabha passed 13 Bills despite persistent uproar created by opposition Congress over various issues, including certain allegations against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in connections with DDCA affairs, the Rajya Sabha lost over 47 hours due to disruptions.

In Lok Sabha, the 20-day session was considerably much productive as compared to the last Monsoon session.
