Govt. is afraid of facing Parliament: BJP

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday questioned the delay in convening the monsoon session of Parliament, saying that the development raised questions about the government’s majority status.

“The government is afraid of facing the Parliament because not only are its own MPs from Andhra Pradesh unhappy with its, even its allies are not at ease,” said BJP spokesman Syed Shahnawaz Hussain.

“The government is anxious and is under constant fear as to its future and the delay in calling the session of Parliament puts a question mark on whether the UPA enjoys a majority at the Centre or not,” Mr. Hussain said.

The BJP national spokesperson said that the Congress had lost face in the wake of a series of scams that bared its “corrupt” face and it did not want to face ticklish issues in the Parliament. “That is why the UPA has delayed the session which is normally convened in the month of July.”
