The parties questioned government over timing of the reforms' announcement, made ahead of the Prime Minister's tour of UK, G-29 Summit in Turkey and visits to ASEAN countries, slamming Modi for taking the decision without seeking Cabinet's approval, which they said was 'complete' travesty of system of Parliamentary democracy.
