NEW DELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party accused the Congress on Saturday of not showing any keenness in passage of the Goods and Service Tax (GST) Bill.

Bharatiya Janta Party spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said that despite all efforts made by the ruling party to discuss the bill with the Congress leaders, no consensus could be reached.

He further accused the Congress of trying to postpone the bill for another year.

The Winter Session has seen frequent disruption over several issues, even as legislations on GST Bill, Real Estate bill, SC/ST bill, among other important Bills are pending.

The Rajya Sabha has been the worst hit in terms of deliberations, losing several days to disruptions over union minister V K Singh's Dalit comment, the National Herald case, corruption cases like the Madhya Pradesh Vyapam scam and the alleged atrocities against Dalits in Punjab.
