Hope Pending Bills are Passed in Winter Session of Parliament: Government

Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said an understanding was reached that the Rajya Sabha will transact business till late on Monday, but that did not happen.


New Delhi:  The government on Monday slammed the Congress for disrupting parliament and said it hoped that important bills will be passed before the ongoing winter session ended on December 23.

"There are several important bills pending, whether it is the Goods and Services Tax bill, Real Estate bill, SC/ST bill... It was agreed that the houses will sit till late and clear the legislative business, but the opposition is not cooperating," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

Mr Naqvi said an understanding was reached that the Rajya Sabha will sit till late on Monday and transact business, but that did not happen.

"We hope that in the remaining days (of the winter session) some bills will be passed," he said.

The Rajya Sabha or the upper house is the worst hit of the two houses, losing several days to disruptions over union minister VK Singh's comment, National Herald case, corruption cases like the Madhya Pradesh Vyapam scam and the alleged atrocities on Dalits in Punjab.

The upper house remained stalled on Monday as well.
