Winter session of Parliament to begin next month

He alleged the opposition party is suffering from selective amnesia as, during UPA rule, the Winter sessions were held in December in 2008 and 2013.

"We are surprised at the Congress' sudden respect for dignity of Parliament".

A day after Congress President Sonia Gandhi hit out at the Modi government for sabotaging democracy, senior party leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge, Anand Sharma and young leader Deepender Hooda addressed a joint press conference to highlight that Parliament had met for 38 days in 2017 against the decadal average of 72.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said Parliament sessions were often rescheduled to ensure they did not overlap with elections and claimed the Congress had done so too in the past.

Rebutting Congress party's allegations that the Narendra Modi government has little regard for parliamentary democracy Naqvi said that the Congress has "no moral right" to lecture the government on the subject.

"It was Congress which staged walkout from both Houses of Parliament when the government was ready to discuss the issue of demonetisation". "We would like to know how much time Rahul Gandhi spends in Parliament", Prasad told reporters at a press conference at the BJP headquarters.

"The Congress ran away from meaningful debate be it demonetisation or GST".
