New Delhi, Dec 16: Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar, who had sought an apology from the opposition for "paralysing" Parliament over note ban issue, on Friday said there is no bad blood between the government and the opposition.
He also said he was constantly in touch with various opposition leaders and they all agreed to pass the People with Disabilities Bill in the Lok Sabha on the last day of the Winter session today unanimously.
"There is no bad blood between us. During this session there were arguments but I was in touch with all opposition parties including Congress, TMC and others," he told reporters. Even as as he attacked the opposition for disruptions in his end-of-session press conference, Kumar said there is "bonhomie between us. I was speaking with Mallikarjun Kharge and other leaders on daily basis."
"On the eve of the session's last day, I had called up all party leaders and asked them whether they would like to conclude the session on positive note to which all agreed.
"They said they have an appointment with the President. So I asked them to ensure that there will be at least one member from all parties to participate in the debate on the bill," he said.
