The monsoon session of Parliament, which ends on August 13, is headed for a washout with the ruling NDA and main opposition party Congress blaming each other for the logjam in the both the Houses.

The Congress has not allowed Parliament to function, demanding the resignations of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje for allegedly helping former IPL chief Lalit Modi get UK travel documents. The leading opposition party also wants the ouster of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over the multi-crore Vyapam scandal.

Congress, on the other hand, blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "insincerity" and "obuduracy" for the logjam in Parliament and demanded that the Bhartiya Janta Party apologise for "damaging" India's growth story by opposing progressive legislations during UPA rule.
