Parliament must function and pass laws necessary for promoting economic reforms and boosting growth, finance minister P Chidambaram said on Tuesday.
"There is nothing wrong with a noisy... Parliament. But we must transact business, we must pass laws," he said at a book release function here.
The monsoon session of Parliament was almost a washout because of the controversy over CAG report on allocation of coal blocks.
"I think we need to manage our politics better. Even if we succeed to manage our demographics and manage our economics, we must manage our politics better if we want to reach that goal of a richer state with more people sharing prospect," Chidambaram said.
Regretting that there is opposition to the growth model, he said, "The sooner we learn to accept our model of growth the better we will be able to manage our economy".
