Asked when the pending bills would be taken up with only
a few days left for this session to end and what was the way forward, Naidu expressed confidence that all bills would get passed.
“You should ask this question to Mallikarjun Kharge, Ghulam Nabi Azad (of Congress) and also the parties which are coming to the Well. We are well within our right. We are saying debate, discuss and decide. They are saying we will not allow. How can I say on their behalf. But as a former parliamentary affairs minister, I am still confident, all the bills will be passed,” he told reporters.
He said that when the House reassembled at 2 PM today, the agenda item was on the issue of remonetisation.
“The PM was present. Why Congress did not allow the debate. They again came to the Well of the House and started making irresponsible comments and raising slogans against the PM,” he said.
He said after the PM came to Rajya Sabha in the morning, he himself stood up and said that since the PM is here, either the question hour or the debate should start.
He said that the chair asked the House whether it wanted debate or question and the Congress said they did not want question hour. He said that he had said yes when the chair asked him if the government was willing to debate.
“The Congress did not cooperate. They came to the Well of the House, created ‘hungama’ and did not allow the debate to go on. When the House reassembled, they again created ‘hungama’, they criticised the leader of the House, then they attacked deputy chairman, made sarcastic and defamatory comments against the chair which were expunged.
“It is a pitiable situation to see the chair has to expunge the remarks. Entire House should have come together to condemn this but Congress leader P Chidambaram came to the defence of Jairam Ramesh,” he said.
He said that the Congress party should have a clear stand over the step of demonetisation taken by the Prime Minister, either they are with it or not. “If you are (in its favour) then say it. If there are shortcomings in it, say that as well,” he said.
“They want to show the House in a poor light. They are thinking they are showing the government in poor light. They are getting exposed,” he said. PTI TDS
