Govt Avoiding Parliament: CPI(M)

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on August 27, 2008

THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly disapproves the cabinet decision not to call the monsoon session of the parliament which should have convened on August 11. Instead, the parliament is convening on October 17 to November 20. This means that there will not be any winter session either. The UPA government is, thus, abdicating its accountability to the parliament especially when serious developments like the disturbances in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, Orissa etc are taking place.
