The Congress has voiced strong disapproval over the recent allocation of the Parliamentary Affairs portfolio, hinting that it signals no intended shift in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's longstanding governance style.

Kiren Rijiju and Arjun Ram Meghwal have been designated as Minister and Minister of State, respectively, for Parliamentary Affairs. Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh, in a social media post, expressed skepticism about any significant procedural changes in Parliament.

Nevertheless, the opposition INDIA bloc, bolstered by 235 seats in the Lok Sabha, remains committed to reflecting public sentiment in both chambers of Parliament, particularly focusing on pressing issues like price rises and unemployment.
