Cong, BJP blame each other for Parliament logjam, announce fasts in protest 6.4.2018 General News
After a washout of the budget session of Parliament that ended today, the BJP and the Congress blamed each other for the impasse and announced countrywide fasts as protest even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the opposition party of taking parliamentary proceedings "to a new low".

Modi at the BJP parliamentary party meeting accused the Congress of paralysing Parliament proceedings during the Budget Session that ended today, and said it was "throttling" ...
