"Tomorrow is January 1. When you are going to celebrate New Year, you should take a vow to allow Parliament to run and do its work and not pose hurdles for the country's development," Modi said. He was addressing a public rally after laying foundation stone of a 14-lane expressway connecting Delhi with Meerut.
Focusing his attack primarily on Congress, Modi said, "This is the misfortune of India, Parliament where laws are made is not being allowed to function. Those who have been rejected by people seized its functioning”.
"They do not allow Parliament to run. I request all these political parties not to do so. Since I have not got an opportunity to speak in the Lok Sabha, I am taking the opportunity to air my views in 'Jan Sabha'. People have sent us to Parliament to debate, discuss and decide," he said.
The Prime Minister said Congress has more responsibility to ensure functioning of Parliament as they had 'enjoyed power' for over six decades.
"It is our responsibility to accomplish the work entrusted on us by people. This responsibility specially lies on those who have ruled the country for over 60 years. They know what is the responsibility of the Parliament.
