”We hope the winter session will be a constructive, progressive and fulfilling one. We hope the opposition will support us on issues of development", Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

His remark came ahead of the National Democratic Alliance's strategy meeting at Union Minister for Urban Development and Parliamentary Affairs M. Venkaiah Naidu's residence.

Naqvi said the bills pending to be passed in parliament do not belong to any one particular party.

"These bills are for reforms in the country and for the development of all", he said.

The government will push for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Real Estate Regulation bills in the winter session.

"We are talking to everyone. We will work with cooperation, communication and coordination with the opposition. We played the role of a constructive opposition when we were in the opposition. They should do the same".
