Monsoon Session of Parliament extremely disappointing, govt was in rush to curtail session: Congress

New Delhi, 9/8: The Congress on Tuesday said the Monsoon Session of Parliament was “highly disappointing” and the government did not have the appetite to run proceedings till the scheduled date of August 12 even though opposition parties were willing to sit till the very end to debate and pass bills.


The Monsoon Session ended on Monday, four days ahead of schedule, after continued disruptions during the last three weeks over issues like price rise, suspension of 27 MPs, the controversial “Rashtrapatni” remark and the Enforcement Directorate’s action.


The Congress said the government did not have a legislative agenda and though it listed 32 bills at the start of the session, it managed to pass only seven in Lok Sabha and five in Rajya Sabha.
