No end in sight to Parliament deadlock; Congress, BJP in blame game

Chennai: Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today lashed out at Congress for disrupting Parliament and expressed the hope that the party understands its responsibility and comes to the House to discuss issues.


After the incident, BJP Lok Sabha MPs, including Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, submitted a privilege motion against IYC leaders for “attacking” the office of the speaker by demonstrating outside her residence. Even the suspension on Congress MPs can be revoked.

“By obstructing the Parliament, Congress and its friends are doing a great disservice to the nation“.

“Unfortunately, BJP leaderships thought process is fast turning to the level of personal abuse as reflected from statements of Kailash Vijayvargiya, Prakash Javadekar, Smriti Irani and Santosh Gangwar.

On Friday, Rahul Gandhi had accused financial transactions between Sushma Swaraj’s family and Lalit Modi.

“It is against democratic principles”. Who was in the government…? Apart from writing letters to the Centre, AICC chief Sonia Gandhi raised the concerns of AP in Parliament, they said.

Since the beginning of the monsoon session, the Congress, along with other opposition parties, has been insisting on the resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over what is called the “Lalitgate” and the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over the Vyapam scam.


He said nearly all the states and political parties were in favour of the GST bill and most issues have been ironed out.
