Congress’s media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala told in the press conference that we do not have enough number of MPs for leader counterpart. He said that officially 10 percent MPs are needed and we have a shortage of 2 MPs.
There is a discussion on who will be the leader of the opposition within the Lok Sabha after a bad defeat in the elections. In the Congress Parliamentary Party meeting on Saturday, Sonia Gandhi has been authorized to take a decision on the Congress leader in the Lok Sabha. However, interestingly, the Congress Party will not now claim the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha.
Congress’s media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala told in the press conference that we do not have enough number of MPs. He said that officially 10 per cent MPs are needed and we have 2 MPs, so we can not be Leader of Opposition, and till we have 54 MPs, we will not demand this post.
Prior to this issue, Surjevala surrounded the Modi government with inflation. Surjewala said that the government has raised the price of non-subsidized gas cylinders by 25 rupees and the price of subsidized cylinder has increased by Rs 1.23. He said that the price of cooking gas has increased for the fourth consecutive month.
Suejawala said that on 16 May 2014, the subsidized cylinders were available in Delhi for Rs 412, now it has been 497.37 paise. If a family buys 12 cylinders a year, then more than one thousand rupees falls on it. The most impact will be on the buyers who buy cylinders under the Ujjwala scheme. ‘
