New Delhi : The Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley rejected concerns of the Parliament's disruption in upcoming monsoon session over the Lalit Modi row, saying some people may be pertinent to news channels but not to governance.

He said the bills to modify the Land Acquisition Act and bring in a uniform pan-India goods and services tax (GST) are very vital for progress of the country and hoped no political party takes anti-growth and anti-development stand.

"Some people may be important for television channels, they have no relevance to governance as far as the Centre is concerned," he told reporters in New Delhi.

The finance minister was replying on chances of the monsoon session of the Parliament getting disrupted out over Congress' demand for resignation of External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje over alleged links with ex-IPL chief Lalit Modi.
