New Delhi, Feb 22 (IANS) The government said on Monday it wants a detailed discussion on the JNU row, the Jat agitation for reservations, and other important issues in the Parliament’s upcoming budget session.

Chairing an all-party meeting here ahead of the crucial budget session beginning on Tuesday, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said the government was in favour of discussion on all significant issues.

“We want a detailed discussion on JNU; people should know what really happened there, the cause and the consequence of the act,” the minister told reporters after the meeting.

There will be 32 items of business in the forthcoming session, including the GST bill, he said.
