Hope Opposition doesn’t disrupt monsoon session: Jaitley

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) With a stormy monsoon session looming large, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said some bills were crucial for the country’s growth, and added he hoped the opposition would not disrupt parliament over the Lalit Modi controversy.

“The bills (to amend the Land Acquisition Act, and introduce the Goods and Services Tax) are very crucial for development and I hope no political party takes anti-growth and anti-development position,” Jaitley told the media here.

“There is a lot of importance of these bills to the country’s economy…The government is hopeful that no political party will adopt a negative approach on the issue of nation’s development,” he said.

Jaitley was replying to a question on the possibility of the monsoon session getting washed out over the Congress’ demand for the resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over the Lalit Modi issue.

The finance minister, however, did not give a direct reply to a question on Lalit Modi naming various politicians, including him, on his Twitter account.

“Some people may be of relevance to television channels, (but) they have no relevance as far as the government of India is concerned,” he quipped.
