As the dates for the Monsoon session of parliament nears the battle lines are been drawn between the Government and opposition. With the Budget session a total wash out no business taking place in Rajya Sabha, a stormy or a confrontation marred Monsoon session could be the nail in the coffin so far as parliament is concerned.
The Congress party in its latest attack has accused the BJP and the government of attempting to scuttle the Monsoon Session of Parliament, scheduled to start from 18 July, by raising issues that rake up conflict.
Senior Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was running away from his responsibility of accountability to Parliament.
He appealed to Modi and his government to give up the “mindset of conflict and confrontation” in the country’s larger interest.
He alleged that the government did not believe in consensus on any issue and instead believed in confrontation.
“The prime minister and the government are not interested in the Monsoon Session. They have started raising issues that lead to conflict.
Like the last session, the prime minister wants to run away from his accountability before Parliament,” he told reporters. So, the stage is set for yet another Government vs Opposition battle in Parliament.
