Budget 2016: Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said “destructive” agenda sometimes dominates legislative business in Parliament and development suffers as a result. Speaking at a programme here, the MoS Parliamentary Affairs said development takes back seat when “destructive” agenda dominates the legislative agenda in Parliament.

He said Congress is unable to digest the change of guard at the Centre even after two years of the Lok Sabha poll and this is the reason behind “baseless” disruption in Parliament.

Naqvi said Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister is like an “eyesore” to Congress.

People with “feudal mindset” think a single family has the right to rule the country or it should have power to remote control, he said.

When the NDA came to power at the Centre, he said the biggest challenge was to provide a transparent and corruption-free system, and claimed the alliance has been successful in doing this.

The Modi government has shut down shops of power brokers and “loot lobby” from the “corridors of power”, he said.

He said “political selfishness” has become one of the biggest hurdles in passing bills related to progress and empowerment of the poor and added people’s mandate should be respected in a democracy.

He said disruption in Parliament in the previous sessions resulted in delay in passage of key reforms bills such as Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Bill, 2013, Anti-Hijacking Bill, 2014, and Good and Service Tax (GST) Bill.
