Modi govt sabotaging Winter Session on trivial grounds: Sonia

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.

He said Modi and his cabinet was becoming a "campaign machine" aggressively canvassing in Gujarat and elsewhere and said the people want the government to run the country instead.

Kharge, he said, should answer who was the "destroyer" of democracy in India, referring to the Emergency promulgated by the then prime minister Indira Gandhi.

He also said the session would be held and the Congress "totally exposed".

Government keen to bring anti-triple talaq bill in winter session
They felt that the provisions of the Indian Penal Code were sufficient to deal with cases when aggrieved women approached police. But there have been reports of a number of divorces by way of "talaq-e-biddat" even after the judgement, the functionaries said.

Chairing her last meeting of the Congress Working Committee, Congress president Sonia Gandhi launched a scathing attack on the government for "sabotaging the Winter Session of Parliament".

"Usually, care is taken not to overlap Parliament session with assembly elections". "It has been a tradition and it has happened several times that Parliament sessions are rescheduled when an election is happening". The government is considering a truncated Winter Session of around 10 days starting from the second week of December, sources said.

"The writing on the wall is loud and clear that the Congress will lose both Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat assembly polls and now out of frustration, it is making such wild accusations", Kumar said, adding the Congress speaking about democracy considering its past history is paradoxical. "(Congress) did so in 2011, and even before that", the BJP leader added.

The Congress' love for Parliament's dignity is a pleasant surprise, Prasad said in a jibe, accusing the party of running away from debates on the GST and demonetisation by stalling Parliament or walking out of it. PTI KR JTR PYK ASK ASK.
