Vice-President on Saturday said that it does not matter how many days sat but what matters is how many days it functioned. His remarks come a day after the dates for Parliament’s were announced following opposition’s criticism of the government for delaying the session. The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) headed by Home Minister Rajnath Singh recommended yesterday that the session be held from December 15 to January 5. Speaking at a literature festival here, Naidu said literature is the backbone of the country and that “pseudo politicians” should leave the three Cs of caste, community and cash and go back to “character, calibre, capacity, conduct and compassion” as the only yardstick for measuring merit.
