Mr Kumar said the only “major change” since then is the Cong president (Rahul Gandhi) and his “miopic vision” and unreasonable strategy in Parliament.

New Delhi: With a near washout of the second half of the Budget Session of Parliament, the government on Thursday blamed the Congress’ “negative, intolerant and undemocratic politics” for the stalemate in both Houses. The session is coming to an end on Friday.

Rejecting Congress allegation that government did not approach it to end the stalemate, parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar said not only him but even his deputy Vijay Goel and finance minister Arun Jaitley had met Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad over the issue.

 

Reminding the Opposition party that it was the same government and the “same parliamentary affairs minister,” who had consulted with the Opposition parties over the crucial GST Bill which had since then been implemented, Mr Kumar said the only “major change” since then is the Congress president (Rahul Gandhi) and his “miopic vision” and unreasonable strategy in Parliament.
