New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday termed the Monsoon session of Parliament as "highly disappointing" and claimed the government did not have an appetite to run proceedings even though the Opposition was willing to sit till the very end to debate and pass bills.

The Monsoon session ended on Monday, four days ahead of schedule, after continued disruptions during the last three weeks over issues like price rise, suspension of 27 MPs, the controversial "Rashtrapatni" remark and the Enforcement Directorate's action.

The principal opposition party questioned the decision to curtail the session and alleged that after the prime minister, his ministers too were "ignoring" Parliament.

The Opposition was ready to sit on August 10 and 12 to discuss and pass bills but the government was in a rush to curtail the session, AICC general secretary, communication, and party's chief whip in Rajya Sabha Jairam Ramesh said at a press conference.
