Rajiv Rudy says behaviour of Congress may compel to increase days of session
After the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Parliamentary party meeting on Tuesday, party leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy said that after seeing the behaviour of Congress they may be compelled to increase the days of the Parliament session.
Talking on the issues discussed in the session, he said, "The session is on but the Congress party has always acted as an obstructionist, they have disputed the bills and have raised issues. As the number of parliamentary bills are there with the government, there is a possibility that seeing how the Congress party has behaved, we may be compelled to increase the days of the session".
"The Judicial Commission Bill will be introduced and discussed in the Parliament today. And I am sure this will improve the accountability of the judges and has absolutely nothing to do with the Parliament vis-a-vis government vis-a-vis the judiciary or executive vis-a-vi the judiciary", he added.
Rudy further said, "There has been an appeal to members of the Parliament to visit their constituency and see that the maximum MLA's get elected, as we regularly find that the bills are being opposed in the Rajya Sabha. There is a long drawn design for the party now to increase the presence of Rajya Sabha members so that we can get the same support in the Rajya Sabha as we get in the Lok Sabha".
Rudy also said that many issues were discussed. Parliamentary Affairs Minister and Finance Minister along with Lal Krishna Advani were present.
On behalf of all the members, the Prime Minister was congratulated for his first visit to Leh and Ladakh.
