Criticising BJP for accusing Congress of blocking GST Bill, he said, "Parliament should function, but it needs discussion. It is not like RSS shakha. India is a country with diversity and not a closed system where decisions can be imposed."
    
"The BJP-led government must realise that Parliament is a forum for discussion and nothing can be imposed without allowing opposition to express its voice and views. It should not brush aside opposition," the Congress Vice President said during an interaction with mediapersons here.
    
He was speaking on a day Modi accused Congress of indulging in "negative politics", saying 40 MPs were "conspiring" and "blocking" parliamentary process, thereby holding back India's development march.
    
Claiming that the BJP leadership did not believe in consensus and discussion, Rahul Gandhi said the Modi Government expected Congress to function like a ruling party.
    
"Being an opposition party, Congress needs to express its views in Parilament as it represents the people and their voice. But, the BJP is not allowing us to present our voice," the AICC Vice-President said adding senior Congress leaders were prevented from placing their views on GST.
