NEW DELHI: The opposition parties have sent a memorandum to President Droupadi Murmu, expressing “grave concern that Parliament has not been able to function” properly since it started its monsoon session on July 18.
From day one, the opposition parties have been demanding discussion on price rise, inflation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) on food items, which the government saying that it is ready for the debate once “finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman recovers from Covid and returns to Parliament”. On Tuesday the Congress also protested against the questioning of party president Sonia Gandhi by Enforcement Directorate (ED), calling it a “political vendetta by Prime Minister Narendra Modi”.
Senior Congress MP Jairam Ramesh, however, alleged the disruption was because of the government’s continued refusal to have an urgent discussion on price rise and GST. “The most important issues today are price rise, unemployment, growing insecurity and this senseless GST on food items. The government has refused to have a discussion on these and that’s why all opposition parties have protested,” the Congress general secretary told media on a day 19 opposition MPs were suspended from Rajya Sabha.
The House chairman suspended seven MPs from Trinamool Congress, six from DMK, three TRS, two CPI(M) and one from CPI for the remaining part of the week for storming the well and raising slogans demanding discussion on GST hike, inflation and fuel prices.
This came a day after four Congress MPs were suspended from the Lok Sabha for the rest of the monsoon session for ‘unruly behaviour’.
Ramesh also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government of continued misuse of investigative agencies for political vendetta.
“Congress president Sonia Gandhi was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate for the second time today (Tuesday). We protested in the Parliament against this continued misuse of investigative agencies. This is nothing but political vendetta,” he said addressing a press briefing.
“So we walked towards Vijay Chowk, we were detained, forcibly arrested and brought to Kingsway Camp police station. Rahul Gandhi was also detained with all our MPs,” the Congress leader said, adding there is absolutely no case as far as money laundering is concerned.
“It is a systematic campaign of vilification and politics by Modi against a person, who has raised her voice, and a party which has raised its voice against the policies of his government, which are destroying our society.”
