New Delhi: Hitting out at the Congress party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked BJP MPs to “expose the party before the public and the media” for not allowing the monsoon session of parliament to run smoothly and making repeated disruptions over the Pegasus snooping row, farm laws, and other issues. The prime minister’s comments came when he was addressing the parliamentary party meet today on the opposition’s attempts to stall business during the ongoing monsoon session and its irresponsible behaviour.Also Read - LIVE IND vs SA 2nd T20I Weather UPDATE: RAIN May Play Spoilsport in Guwahati
During the meeting, the prime minister blamed Congress for deliberately attempting to disrupt proceedings and hampered work in this ongoing parliament session. Referring to Congress’ boycott of last week’s all-party meeting to review the COVID-19 situation, PM Modi said the party had also prevented others from attending. He asked his party MPs to “expose this behaviour of the Congress and some opposition parties in front of the media and the public”.

Earlier on July 19, PM Modi was even forced to cut short his speech due to slogan-shouting by opposition leaders when he rose to introduce new Cabinet ministers. And, so far, no business has been conducted in parliament this session since the Pegasus row erupted July 18. On Tuesday too, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned amid repeated sloganeering.
