Parliament stalemate continues, government, Opposition trade charges

Day 6 Budget session Lok Sabha business washed out

Continuous acrimonious scenes, slogan shouting and members rushing to the well of the House yet again forced the Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the proceedings till 1200 hours on Tuesday.

Within minutes after it met, members from various parties trooped near the Speaker's podium, raising slogans on different issues, including the banking irregularities.

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 Lok Sabha has failed to transact substantial business on account of frequent disruptions since March 5 when the second leg of the Budget Session of Parliament commenced.

In the Rajya Sabha, despite repeated appeals by Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to allow the smooth functioning of the House, opposition members trooped into the well displaying placards.

In fact, important issues are now discussed more outside Parliament than on the floor of the Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha by both the Congress and the BJP.

Naidu also disapproved of catcalls made by members of treasury benches when he called out the name of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram for laying of some papers. Soon after it assembled, the Upper House was adjourned till 2 PM as noisy protests continued, with the Trinamool Congress and other parties insisting that a discussion on the bank scam be held under rules that entail voting.

Mr Naidu said the disturbances in the House shows Parliament in a poor light. If this is the way MPs are behaving, I will adjourn the House.

After both the houses were adjourned early on the day, Congress hit back at BJP.

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

However, Shukla said these provisions can be debated during the discussion on the bill and introduced the bill.
