NEW DELHI, Dec 23 - Attacking the Congress for using its numbers to �paralyse� the Rajya Sabha, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today backed the �campaign� for �redefining� its role as the two Houses are �pulling in different directions�.
Holding that the country is �disappointed� with the functioning of Parliament, Naidu accused the Congress of �cheating the people� by not allowing the Government to do �what is expected of it�.
�This session has been a victim of a strategy conceived before its commencement, which was to see that Parliament was paralysed, come what may. Since the Monsoon Session, which was a near washout, the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha have been pulling in different directions.
�This only justifies the campaign of some people that has already begun in some degree for redefining the role of the Rajya Sabha...The country is disappointed about the manner in which Parliament has functioned,� Naidu told the media after both Houses adjourned sine die. � PTI
