New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi will be addressing a party Parliamentary meeting at 9:30 am here on Monday.
The Congress party had on Sunday made a blistering attack on the ruling BJP and blamed it for the ongoing logjam in Parliament.
Blaming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the non-functioning of the Parliament, Congress leader Salman Khurshid said the Opposition parties have made some legitimate demands which have to be met.
"BJP is not letting the country run so what difference does it make if Parliament doesn't run. There are some legitimate demands that the opposition parties have made and those demands have to be met," Khurshid told ANI.
Earlier, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy had expressed hope that the Parliament will function tomorrow after a continued spell of adjournments and disruptions.
Both the Houses of Parliament have not been able to function with the opposition parties reiterating their demand for External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's resignation over her alleged help to former IPL chief Lalit Modi.
The opposition has also been targeting the government over the Vyapam scam.
