New Delhi: Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy on Friday accused the Congress Party, and particularly its vice president, Rahul Gandhi, of shying away from having a debate in Parliament.

Rudy asked, "The first and the foremost thing that the vice president of the Congress Party should adhere to is to come to parliament and talk. Why is the Congress Party shying away from the idea of debating things in parliament?"

"Why is Congress not ready to come for a debate on all these issues? Even for an issue (FTII) for which he is going to Pune," he added.

Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to meet Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) students in connection with their protest against the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as its chairman.

According to reports, some students had approached Rahul Gandhi to intervene in the matter.Meanwhile, the government will today convene an all-party meeting to discuss the ways to break logjam in the Parliament over former IPL chief Lalit Modi controversy and the Vyapam scam.

Parliament has not been able to function with the opposition demanding External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj`s resignation over her alleged help to Modi.
