JNU row: Govt ready to discuss issue in Parliament

 Stressing that the Centre was ready to discuss the ongoing unrest at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday said that there were different views on the issue which needs to be debated.

 
"There are several issues. That's what the Parliament is there for, to discuss those issues. The Centre has no hesitation in discussing JNU or Hyderabad University or any other issues. There are different views on it which needs to be debated," Naidu told the media in the national capital.
 
Advising the Opposition to adopt a positive approach for the upcoming Budget Session, he added that holding discussion should be the protocol in the Parliament instead of disruption.
 
Leaders from several political parties, including Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, Jyotiraditya Scindia, CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI (M) politburo member Mohammed Salim besides others were also present in the meeting.
 
The Budget Session will begin on February 23. While the first session will continue till March 16, the second session will take place from April 25 to May 13.
