New Delhi [India], Dec. 17 (ANI):Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said that the disruption of Parliament was very unfortunate and sad event. "It is very unfortunate and sad. Parliament is meant for debate and discussion. If someone does not like anything, then they can raise their voice on the basis of evidence and proof, but the Congress was trying to hamper progress," Naqvi told ANI. "Because of the Congress, many bills related to farmers, women's development, social and economical empowerment could not be passed in Parliament. Out of the 22 listed bills only the Disability Bill was passed," he added. Naqvi, had earlier taken a dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, saying that he was writing his party's last chapter in free India. "I think that Rahul Gandhi and the Congress Party should understand that with an expired script, they are writing the last chapter of a Congress free India. They should also understand that so many scams took place during their time that it would only hamper their image." Naqvi further said there are so many corruption cases against the Congress Party and its leaders. "If they come out in public domain, they will expose the DNA of the grand old party." he added. (ANI)
