HYDERABAD: MP from Assam and deputy leader of the Congress party in the Lok Sabha – Gaurav Gogoi – has slammed the central government over its alleged silence on the agenda of the special Parliament session that is scheduled to begin on September 18.
While speaking to news agency ANI in Hyderabad on the side-lines of the Congress working committee (CWC) meeting, Assam Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said: “It is an arrogant policy of the government that they will reveal the agenda 2-3 days before the session.”
The Assam Congress MP further stated that the BJP-led central government is “keeping the people of India in dark” by not disclosing the agenda of the special Parliament session.
“Parliament does not belong to the ruling party or to the opposition, but it belongs to the country. The government is accountable to the people of the country,” Gaurav Gogoi said.
It may be mentioned here that the five-day special session of Parliament will commence on Monday (September 18) and conclude on September 22.
The central government has decided to start the special session with a discussion on the Parliament’s 75-year journey.
