Govt’s attitude in Parliament confrontational: Sachin Pilot
The Congress on Friday accused the government of having a “confrontational” attitude inside Parliament, alleging that the Narendra Modi dispensation was still far from reaching out to the Opposition.
The party also dismissed suggestions that Modi, following Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Twitter was a “positive sign”.
“One does not see even faint signs of government approaching the Opposition...Its attitude inside Parliament is not one of dialogue, but that of confrontation,” Congress leader Sachin Pilot said.
He was asked about Modi following Kejriwal on Twitter, which has been reportedly hailed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as a positive sign of ties between the government and the Opposition.
Pilot said if the government reaches out to the Opposition, it would pave the way for the early passage of key reform measure of GST and other Bills. “Nothing happens just by following the Twitter handle of anyone,” he remarked.
Modi and Kejriwal have been at loggerheads on several issues and are known detractors.
