Sitaram Yechury Blames Modi Government For Deadlock In Parliament

CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury accused the BJP for setting agenda outside Parliament so the House does not function.


New Delhi:  CPI(M) today blamed the government for Parliamentary logjam which was stalling the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, claiming a section of the ruling dispensation was "sabotaging" it.

"We have told BJP to call an all-party meeting on the GST issue but it has not been called yet. We suspect the government itself is sabotaging GST, a section in the government is against the GST," CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury told reporters.

With just six days left for the Winter Session of Parliament to conclude, the passage of GST bill seems unlikely.

Mr Yechury accused the BJP for setting agenda outside Parliament so the House does not function.

Referring to disruptions in Parliament over various issues including CBI raid on Delhi Chief Minister's office, Mr Yechury said "Agenda is set outside Parliament for not letting it function".

He said, "When Parliament session is on, incidents which divert attention is not undertaken by the government normally.

Whatever happened in Arunachal, Delhi CM office, are indications in this direction. But then what happened in Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh, Lalit Modi issue in Rajasthan?"

"On the one hand they are saying Opposition is not allowing GST bill to pass, on the other hand everybody knows it was opposed by the then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi," the CPI(M) leader said targeting the Prime Minister.

Mr Yechury said since Parliament was not functioning, the ruling party thought "they are not accountable".

"Government's own action leads to that GST bill will not be passed," Mr Yechury said.
