Congress pulls up BJP for disrupting parliamentary proceedings

New Delhi, Wed, 23 Nov 2011 ANI

New Delhi, Nov. 23 (ANI): With the agitated opposition stalling proceedings in both the Houses of Parliament on the second consecutive day on Wednesday, the ruling Congress Party today hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for disrupting the ongoing Winter Session of Parliament despite repeated assurances from Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh that the government is ready to discuss all issues.


"It is unfortunate that the opposition is not allowing the Parliament to function. Parliament is a place of discussion about the problems being faced by the people of the country. The Prime Minister has already assured the opposition that the government is ready to discuss all issues," said Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi.


The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, had on Tuesday described the Winter Session of Parliament as very crucial, and hoped its proceedings would be peaceful, smooth and result-oriented.


"I sincerely hope that this session of Parliament will move smoothly. The government is committed to discuss all issues. All political parties would recognize we have important legislation for this country," said Dr. Singh.


"I hope the political parties will resist boycott. I appeal to all the parties to work together for the country," he added.


Alvi also criticised senior BJP leader and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha's comments that the rising inflation could lead to violence.


"What does the Bharatiya Janata Party want to achieve in this country? In what direction, the main opposition wants to take the country whose foundation is based on non-violence," said Alvi.


"The people of India believe in non-violence and if the main opposition party says that the people might get violent if inflation is not handled then nothing can be more unfortunate than this statement. This language is not political. It looks this is the language of Mafiosi," he added.


After the Parliament's first day of the Winter Session was adjourned, Yashwant Sinha had on Tuesday said that the UPA Government will pay for inflation if it does not take steps to tackle it soon.


Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned till Thursday, as the opposition refused to back down on a number of issues including inflation and the 2G spectrum scam.


Food inflation has been stubbornly high over the last few years in India, in spite of record foodgrain production and robust buffer stocks.


The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has already raised rates 13 times since early March 2010 to clamp down on stubborn inflation, largely driven by high food prices.


Inflation has remained over nine percent since December 2010. The headline inflation measured on Wholesale Price Index (WPI) was 9.7 percent in October, while the rate of price in food segment for the week ended November 05 was 10.6 percent. (ANI)
