New Delhi: Reminding the Congress of Jawaharlal Nehru’s legacy, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday slammed the party for disrupting parliament and asked “what kind of history are they making”.

“Those who claim the legacy of Panditji must ask themselves the question, what kind of history are they making?” Jaitley said in a Facebook post.

“The current session of parliament is also threatened with a washout. The reasons for the washout keep changing by the hour,” he added.

Jaitley said the nation was waiting for parliament to discuss public issues, to legislate and approve a constitution amendment enabling the Goods and Service Tax (GST).

“All this is being indefinitely delayed. The question we need to ask ourselves is, are we being fair to ourselves and this country?”

The minister said, “Pandit Nehru had delivered a speech on the last day of the first Lok Sabha which is a must read for all of us.

“All of us, if not always, at any rate from time to time, must have felt this high sense of responsibility and destiny to which we had been called. Whether we were worthy of it or not is another matter. We have functioned, therefore, during these five years not only on the edge of history but sometimes plunging into the processes of making history,” he quoted Nehru as saying.(IANS)
