Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley on Thursday slammed the UPA for curtailing the winter session of Parliament,saying the government has lost the will to govern and has become “dead duck” government.

“The recently concluded session of Parliament evidenced this loss of capacity and will to rule. No effort was made to get the session to run. The session had to be abandoned midway. The disturbance was predominantly by the UPA members,their allies and supporters,” Jaitley said in a signed statement. “It is now an under-statement to call the UPA a lame duck government. It is in fact a dead duck.”

Jaitley deplored the Congress’s handling of JPC report on 2G spectrum allocation,Telangana statehood,government’s reconciliation on Lokpal Bill after a delay of two years and the party’s positioning towards AAP among other issues. “What is the UPA gameplan to deal with the AAP? It may not be fully correct to say that AAP is the B-Team of the Congress. It is the Congress which has now agreed to become the B-Team of the AAP – again an evidence of the lack of will to fight back,” he said.
