Congress Not Letting Parliament Run, Expose Them


'Congress Not Letting Parliament Run, Expose Them,' PM Tells BJP MPs

New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday attacked the Congress for not allowing the monsoon session of parliament – disrupted repeatedly by opposition sloganeering and demands for discussions on the Pegasus phone-hacking row, the farmers’ protest and other controversial issues.

Addressing a meeting of the BJP’s parliamentary party this morning, he accused the Congress of deliberately spurning attempts at resolving an impasse that has seen little, if any, work in this parliament session.

He pointed to the Congress’ boycott of last week’s all-party meeting to review the COVID-19 situation, and said the party had also prevented others from attending.

The Prime Minister asked his party MPs to “expose this behaviour of the Congress and some opposition parties in front of the media and the public”.

No business has been conducted in parliament this session since the Pegasus row erupted July 18.

Proceedings in both houses of parliament have been disturbed by opposition protests, leading to chaotic scenes – including a Trinamool MP snatching papers from the hands of IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw as he was giving a statement on the Pegasus scandal – and repeated adjournments.

Yesterday the focus was on Congress MP Rahul Gandhi as he drove a tractor to parliament to underline widespread protests against the centre’s controversial farm laws. Several opposition parties, including Punjab’s Akali Dal, have demanded discussions on this topic.

Also yesterday the government reached out to the opposition to end the deadlock.

Last week, on the first day of the monsoon session (and a day after Pegasus broke) the Prime Minister called on the opposition to “ask tough questions, but allow the government to reply”.
