PM scared to face Parliament: Sonia Gandhi

Addressing a meeting of the Congress Working Committee Sonia Gandhi also hit out at the government over its handling of the economy

The winter session of Parliament traditionally convenes from the third week of November and lasts till the third week of December.

Speaking to the media, Congress leader Anand Sharma said, "It is clear that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government are running away from the Parliament to avoid debates or discussions which will surely expose their misgovernance".

Kumar's remarks come on a day when Congress' floor leaders in Parliament hit out at the government for deliberately delaying the winter session to avoid questions from the opposition benches which can hamper its prospects in the Gujarat assembly polls.

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".

Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said that the government is practising Gujarat in Delhi by not convening Parliament.

"(The) timing is decided such that they do not overlap with election campaigns.

The Congress has been accusing the government of sabotaging the winter session of Parliament. "The congress has also done it before", he said.

Mr Jaitley said that the government has nothing to hide, and added, "The Congress has given the most corrupt government in its 10 years of rule, while Narendra Modi has given the most honest government. Yet the PM continues with greater vigour to make announcements, false promises, and to quote facts and figures that have nothing to do with the reality on the ground", she said. Congress' newfound love for Parliament and advice on its functioning is ironical. Similar situations were seen in 1981, 1990, 1993 and 2011.

Yadav also did not spare the party on the news of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's elevation as the Congress President, replacing his mother and incumbent party President, Sonia Gandhi.
