We sup­port re­forms, but BJP has reached out only now: Op­po­si­tion

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: The Cen­tre started con­sult­ing op­po­si­tion par­ties on pol­icy mat­ters only af­ter a string of elec­tion losses, Congress leader Jy­oti­ra­ditya Scin­dia said Fri­day, making it clear his party was never op­posed to many of the re­forms leg­is­la­tion now stuck in Par­lia­ment.

“There were no con­ver­sa­tions be­tween the gov­ern­ment and the Op­po­si­tion in the last 15 months un­til the re­sults of the Bi­har as­sem­bly and Gu­jarat civic body polls. We are more than happy to have a con­ver­sa­tion with the gov­ern­ment,” Scin­dia, the Congress chief whip in Lok Sabha, said at the Hin­dus­tan Times Lead­er­ship Sum­mit.

He at­tended a ses­sion on ‘The chal­lenges be­fore us’, along with two other MPs, NCP’s Supriya Sule and BJD’s Bai­jayant ‘Jay’ Panda.
