Cong wants Modi to check aggressive ministers

The Congress wants Prime Minister Narendra Modi to control his aggressive ministers if he wants Parliament to transact any serious legislative business during the Budget session, expected to begin late February.

Congress leaders were particularly irked at the conduct of senior ministers M Venkaiah Naidu, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Piyush Goyal and Arun Jaitley.

Repeated disruptions by the Congress in the Rajya Sabha have led to stalling of legislative business, which has delayed key economic reforms such as the Goods and Services Tax Bill and Real Estate Regulator Bill. The Rajya Sabha passed three bills on the last day of the winter session without discussion.

A senior Congress leader said a few ministers have the habit of provoking Opposition leaders which proved to be a trigger for disruptions.
