Anguished over the washout of the Winter Session of Parliament, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Monday hoped that the logjam would not spill over to the Budget Session for which she asked the government and the opposition to find a "middle path".

"I am anguished. I would like such a thing not to take place in the future and hope the next session runs smoothly," Kumar told reporters after the Winter Session was adjourned sine die after failing to transact any substantial business during the 23 sittings.

"A middle path is essential. The essence of democracy is that the ruling party and the opposition work to find a middle path. This is democracy," she said.

Parliament could function barely for a few hours during the 23 sittings which began on November 9, as the united Opposition forced adjournments almost everyday, within minutes of assembling.
