Regretting that Parliament was not functioning smoothly despite government's best efforts, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday sought constructive cooperation of all parties to make the House live up to the role the founding fathers envisioned for it.

"It is unfortunate that despite our best efforts, Parliament has not been running smoothly," Singh said while giving K Karunakaran Award to finance minister Pranab Mukherjee.

"I would like to say that it is the job of not only the ruling party but all political parties to cooperate constructively in running the House. We should work together to make Parliament live up to the role and ideals that our founding fathers envisioned for it," he said.

His comments came in the backdrop of repeated disruptions caused in Parliament because of which it is not able to function properly. Much of the current winter session of Parliament has been lost due frequent adjournments.

Parliament was adjourned on Wednesday twice after unruly behaviour by some of the members over price rise.
