- Shri Vijay Goel meets former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh before the Monsoon Session of Parliament
Shri Goel called on former Prime Minister and Congress leader Dr. Manmohan Singh today at his residence. Being a senior and respected leader of the Congress, Shri Goel sought his cooperation in running the Parliament smoothly during the ensuing session.
Shri Goel said that Dr. Manmohan Singh welcomes the initiative of the government in reaching out to various opposition leaders and Members for running the House. Dr. Singh also expressed that it is the responsibility of both the ruling and opposition parties to let both the Houses work smoothly.
Shri Goel said the last Budget session was a complete wash-out. The productivity of Rajya Sabha was only 8% and in Lok Sabha the productivity was only 4%. For this upcoming session, it should no longer be accusations and counter-accusations but rather on cooperating each other and determine how much work will be done in Parliament. He said that important pending Bills such as the Muslim Marriage (Protection of Marriage Rights) Bill, 2017, the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2017, the Constitution (123rd Amendment) Bill, 2017 and the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, 2013 need to be passed during the Session for the larger interest of the nation. Shri Vijay Goel also expressed hope that the election of a new Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha will be held in the House with consensus.
Shri Goel said that before the start of the Monsoon Session, he will meet the leaders of opposition parties and sought their support in passing the Bills on the six important ordinances which are for the larger interest of the people of this country - the Fugitive Economic Offenders Ordinance, 2018 ; the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018; the Commercial Courts, Commercial Division and Commercial Appellate Division of High Courts (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018; the Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018; the National Sports University Ordinance, 2018; and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018.
Shri Vijay Goel said that the Government is ready to discuss any issues on the floor of the House and urges all political parties to extend their support for smooth running of the House.
Shri Goel expressed his gratitude for the positive attitude of Dr. Manmohan Singh.
I was pleased to see your reply. You are the first politician who care what his supporter wants and reply in a very humble manner. It's very praise worthy. My all best wishes for upcoming election. It's a changing moment of history.
Sir, it's a request to you kindly raise the issue of unalloted plots to DDA Rohini 1981 scheme. We are waiting for it for 33 years as well as 25000 families are waiting too but DDA has given just paper assurance. Kindly look into the matter sir.
