TMC raises PNB scam in Rajya Sabha, House adjourned till 2 pm

Day 6 Budget session Lok Sabha business washed out

Day 6 Budget session Lok Sabha business washed out

Within minutes after it met, members from various parties trooped near the Speaker's podium, raising slogans on different issues, including the banking irregularities. Members from Telugu Desam Party, an ally of NDA and Y S R Congress party also trooped into the well demanding special status to Andhra Pradesh.

While the Congress and the Trinamool Congress were raising the issue of Punjab National Bank scam, the TRS sought increased reservation quota and the AIADMK wanted the government to constitute the Cauvery management board.

The impasse in the Lok Sabha continued for the seventh day today with no let up in protests by members from opposition parties and TDP over issues like bank scams and special status demand for Andhra Pradesh, forcing the Speaker to adjourn the house.

Last week, both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha failed to transact any business. Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien repeatedly asked the agitating members to go back to their seats, but they did not relent. After it reconvened, the House was adjourned for the day again.

Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said the government has agreed to a short duration discussion - which does not have a provision for a vote. The Opposition apprehends that the government may opt for an early adjournment of the budget session after rushing through the bills.

The BJP Parliamentary Party held its meeting on Tuesday morning, which was attended among others by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP chief Amit Shah and its patriarch Lal Krishna Advani, among others.

The ruling party also indicated that it will press ahead with the Union Budget-related processes even amid protests.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar hit out at the Congress for continuing to stall Parliament.

"It seems (Congress leaders) Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi don't believe in democracy. The Congress (men) doesn't have democracy in their genes", he said.

"We will wait to see whether the opposition decides against or for undertaking legislative business in Parliament".

They soon started to rise from their places to protest and some MPs from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh started moving towards the Well, prompting Naidu to adjourn the proceedings till 2 PM.

"The government is organising disruption by making BJP allies rake up issues", said Congress floor leaders Mallikarjun K h a r g e a n d Jyotiraditya Scindia.

A lot of them were heard shouting "we want justice".
