Fewer sitting days of parliament hampering political consensus: Bordoloi

Kolkata, July 5 (UNI) Congress MP Pradyut Bordoloi on Tuesday regretted that the average sitting days of parliament were gradually declining with the figure for the current Lok Sabha being only 30 days a year.
Bordoloi, the power minister in the erstwhile Congress government of Tarun Gogoi in Assam, said it has become increasingly difficult to achieve political consensus due to the gradual decline in the sitting days of parliament.
"The more you sit in the Parliament, the less you bleed on the streets," said Bordoloi at a panel discussion titled "The Art of Building Consensus in an Age of Disruptions" at the India Today Conclave East here.
