Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were not present in the Lok Sabha despite a
Congress whip to its MPs in both the Houses of Parliament to
be present in case of a vote on price issue but the party
downplayed their absence.
RJD on Friday asked its MLAs to explain their position for not being present in Bihar assembly during the vote on an opposition-sponsored cut motion on the budgetary demands for the state Rural Development department yesterday.
The hasty retreat of
Government on the Nuclear liability bill apparently weighing
heavily on her mind, Sonia Gandhi
expressed concern over the absence of party MPs and asked them
to take attendance in Parliament seriously.
