New Delhi: Both the Houses of Parliament were paralyzed for the 5th day today due to continuous action by the opposition and ruling party MPs. Both houses adjourned till next Monday.
The second session of the budget session of the Parliament began on Monday, the 13th. The opposition parties have been insisting that a parliamentary joint committee should be ordered to investigate the Adani Group’s irregularities and the ruling BJP has been insisting that Rahul Gandhi should apologize in the House for insulting India on foreign soil. Due to this, on the last 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were continuously paralyzed.
In this situation, Parliament met this morning for the 5th day of business. Lok Sabha started today’s proceedings with question hour. Then many members of the opposition came to the center of the House and started raising their elbows. Audio was cut off in the assembly as many members came to the center and protested. Following this, Sabanayakar Om Birla urged the members to allow them to run. However, they were adjourned for the rest of the day as opposition members continued to raise objections.
Similarly, the Rajya Sabha met in the morning for today’s business. House President Jagdeep Dhankar wished Kannada actor and MP Jakesh on his birthday. Members of the Rajya Sabha raised slogans and protested. As a result, no action was taken in the states. So it was announced that they will be adjourned till next Monday.
Earlier, Leader of Opposition Mallikarjuna Kharge accused the BJP of being an anti-national party. Talking to a private news channel about this, he said, “They (BJP) are anti-national. None of them participated in India’s freedom struggle. But they call others anti-national. They do this to divert people from the problems of unemployment and inflation. Can Rahul Gandhi be anti-national? “Are all those who discuss democracy anti-national? Why didn’t they give Rahul Gandhi a chance to speak in Parliament,” he questioned. Earlier, BJP National President JP Natta had criticized Rahul Gandhi today saying he has become a permanent tool of anti-nationals.
In this situation, the members of the opposition party protested near the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in the Parliament, insisting on their demand that a joint parliamentary committee should investigate the Adani issue. Congress party’s former president Sonia Gandhi, current president Mallikarjuna Kharge, Rahul Gandhi and others participated in this demonstration.
