The Congress on Thursday issued a three-line whip to its MPs to be present in Rajya Sabha.

A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the opposition for not holding discussions on key issues such as ‘One Nation, One Election’ concept and spreading negativity in opposing every new idea, the Congress parliamentarians issued this notification.

“Congress has not been able to digest victory. They have not been able to accept the defeat. I do not consider this to be a healthy sign in a democracy. We are seeing this same attitude when it comes to discussing One Nation, One Election,” Modi said while winding up the debate on the President’s address in the Rajya Sabha.

The Prime Minister said, “Those opposing EVMs are not only opposed to EVMs. They have problems with technology, digital transactions, Aadhaar, GST, Bhim App. Why such negativity? This negativity was one of the chief reasons why some parties have not been able to win people’s trust,”. He also urged the opposition to come forward and have discussions on such issues.

The first session of the Rajya Sabha began on June 20 and will go on till July 26.
