Modi government attacks Congress for disruption of monsoon session without a cause

As the monsoon session ended amidst heightened acrimony, the government attacked Congress for ‘disruption without a cause’ and sharpened its tirade against the Gandhi family.narendramodi-ap780

Finance minister Arun Jaitley said the Congress was enslaved to a family which did not tolerate the idea of having a person from outside rule the country. “Its the 40th anniversary of emergency. If Indira Gandhi would have stepped down after losing the legal battle, someone from Congress could have become Prime Minister. But emergency was imposed as power to someone outside the Gandhi family was not acceptable to her,” he said.

Earlier in the day, while addressing a meeting of the NDA, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that the Congress attitude stemmed from its refusal to accept its defeat and asked the members to launch a campaign to ‘expose’ the Opposition party.

“As for Shri Rahul Gandhi, there was no serious expectation that he would raise the level of the debate. He has failed to recognise the difference between sloganeering and a Parliamentary speech. The more he grows, the more he immatures. Aggressive body language is never a substitute for substance,” Jaitley said.

The Congress and Left were key players in the disruption in the session because of which the government was unable to get the GST bill passed.
