NEW DELHI, Aug 3 - The all-party meeting today failed to break the nearly fortnight-long deadlock in Parliament with the Congress unrelenting on its demand for resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and BJP CMs Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Singh Chouhan, and the government firmly rejecting it.

However, a number of regional parties including Trinamool Congress and Biju Janta Dal voiced anguish over continued disruption of the Houses and asked the two national parties to resolve the matter to ensure that other issues are discussed in Parliament.

The JD(U) and Left parties, however, backed the Congress at the meeting.

�Outcome of the meeting is nil, we stand by our demand. Government wants to be the king and they expect the opposition parties to behave like the subjects. Such things do not work in a democracy. Democracy is give-and-take.

�Government has not taken any initiative. They want to pass bills. At the same time, they do not want to take concerns raised by opposition parties on board,� Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad told reporters after the all-party meet.
