New Delhi, Sept 9 : Leaders of the Left, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and other non-Congress and non-BJP parties on Tuesday met President Pratibha Patil to demand immediate convening of the Monsoon Session of Parliament.

The leaders accused the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government of subverting the Constitution by deciding to do away with the monsoon session and convening a combined session.

"As none of the nine assurances given by the Prime Minister on the Indo-US nuclear deal has been met and crucial information has been concealed, the Government is accountable and answerable to the people on various counts," the leaders charged in a memorandum submitted to the President.

Blaming the Government for its inability to control the spiraling inflation and the communal situation in Orissa, they said: "We want to discuss these issues in Parliament session."
