Pitching for passage of Goods and Services Tax Bill, Parliamentary affairs minister Venkaiah Naidu said on Tuesday that the government may convene second part of monsoon session of Parliament to pass key legislations after talking to political parties, news agency Times of India reported.
As per PTI reports, opposition party led by Congress, however, remained non-committal on its support saying it would first read the fine print.
"They (government) want to call a special session and they are consulting all parties it seems. Unless we see what are the amended clauses or what is the agreement between the proposal of the standing committee and government, unless we see the final bill, we cannot comment on that," Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge told PTI reported.
Early today, Venkaiah Naidu met Kharge to discuss the issue.
"They should also send a copy of the bill. What are the new provisions added, which provisions were deleted, what are the proposals accepted by them which were suggested by Congress or other parties, reasonable objections. That should be seen," Kharge said.
The key bill, which aims to bring new tax regime in India, has been stuck in a political logjam in the Rajya Sabha where the ruling NDA does not have a majority.
