PM to be present in Parliament over next 3 days: Naidu

Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present in Parliament for the remaining three days of the winter session and accused the Opposition of “changing goalpost” to disrupt functioning of both the Houses. “The Prime Minister, except when he was out, is in Parliament every day. He is the first man to come to the Parliament and the last man to go. He is sitting in his room and watching all that is happening. As and when there is a request, he comes to the House,” Naidu said.

Naidu’s remarks come in the background of Opposition’s demand for Modi’s presence in the House during the debate on demonetisation and discussion under a rule which entails voting. The winter session of the Parliament has witnessed almost complete washout since it began on November 16. It will resume on Wednesday and conclude on December 16.(ONEINDIA,2016)
