Left, BSP and TDP demand immediate convening of Parliament sessionSeptember 9th, 2008 - 5:45 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi , Sept 9 (ANI): Leaders of the Left, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and other non-Congress and non-BJP parties on Tuesday met President Pratibha Patil to demand immediate convening of the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
The leaders accused the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government of subverting the Constitution by deciding to do away with the monsoon session and convening a combined session.
“As none of the nine assurances given by the Prime Minister on the Indo-US nuclear deal has been met and crucial information has been concealed, the Government is accountable and answerable to the people on various counts, the leaders charged in a memorandum submitted to the President.
Blaming the Government for its inability to control the spiraling inflation and the communal situation in Orissa, they said: We want to discuss these issues in Parliament session. (ANI)
