Opposition hampering developmental work: Venkaiah Naidu


New Delhi: Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu claimed that there has been no disagreement between the Government and the President Pranab Mukherjee over Ordinance issue.

He alleged that the opposition is forcing the government to take the route of the Ordinance by making it difficult for the Parliament to function. Naidu said, “President said Parliament should work properly, we agree with that sentiment. The Opposition should also be inspired by that. We will propose, they can oppose and Parliament will dispose.”

In his address to the nation the President had said, “Enacting laws without discussion impacts the law-making role of the Parliament. It breaches the trust reposed in it by the people. This is neither good for the democracy nor for the policies relating to those laws.”

He blamed the Congress and the United Front for disrupting the procedures of the parliament. He said that since the house was not being allowed to function, ordinance was necessary for undertaking developmental works.
