Shed egos for development: SC judge to parties
“Shed your egos and come together for the growth of the country. Lots of statesmanship is required on this. Persuade all the political parties and let them come with minimum common programme which may include GST as well,” Justice Sikri said while addressing the 88th Annual General Meeting of Ficci here.
“When the dispute can be settled between two different nations, then why can’t within the country,” he said at the industry lobby Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry meeting.
Stressing upon the need to have a Minimum Common Programme (MCP), Justice Sikri said, the political leaders must come together and devise the MCP for the country’s development that may include GST bill, SEZ (special economic zone) and land acquisition bill.
The statement came as the winter session of parliament is witnessing adjournments daily, forced by the Congress and other opposition parties on issues like atrocities against Dalits and CBI raid on the office of Rajendra Kumar, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s principal secretary, and one of his most trusted aides.
