Says those who "enjoyed power" for over six decades have no right to derail its functioning

Hitting out at the Congress over its disruptions in Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asked the party to take a New Year resolution to allow Parliament to function for the sake of the country’s development.
“Tomorrow is January 1. When you are going to celebrate New Year, you should take a vow to allow Parliament to run and do its work and not pose hurdles for the country’s development,” Mr. Modi said.
He was addressing a public rally after laying the foundation stone of a 14-lane expressway connecting Delhi and Meerut.
Mr. Modi said, “This is the misfortune of India, Parliament where laws are made is not being allowed to function. Those who have been rejected by people seized its functioning. They do not allow Parliament to run. I request all these political parties not to do so. Since I have not got an opportunity to speak in Lok Sabha, I am taking the opportunity to air my views in ‘Jan Sabha’. People have sent us to Parliament to debate, discuss and decide.”
The Prime Minister said the Congress “enjoyed power” for over six decades and that it has no right to derail its functioning for “political reasons” and hold back the country’s development.
“It is our responsibility to accomplish the work entrusted on us by people. This responsibility specially lies on those who have ruled the country for over 60 years. They know what the responsibility of Parliament is. It is specially their responsibility to ensure that country’s development is not stopped because of their political reasons. I understand the anger of those who have not got a chance to rule the country. But those who have enjoyed all kinds of power for 60 years have no right to halt Parliament and destroy its functioning,” he said.
The Prime Minister’s attack on the Congress comes after discussion on key Bills, including the GST, were held up due to a stalemate with the Opposition party.
No interview process for class III and class IV employees
Mr. Modi also chose the occasion to announce that the government has abolished interview process for class III and class IV employees and now appointments will happen strictly on basis of merit.
While noting that the Central government is implementing it from January 1 as a “New Year Gift”, the Prime Minister urged State governments to do the same.
