NDA protests force RS to adjourn twice - Sakshi Post

New Delhi: Rajya Sabha was force to adjourn twice due to Congress continous protest  against the suspension of 25 congress members in Lok Sabha.

The ruckus led to an adjournment within a few minutes after the House assembled for the day, till noon. The House got adjourned again soon after it reassembled.

 No sooner did Home Minister Rajnath Singh make a suo motu statement on the Udhampur terrorist attack during the Zero Hour, slogan-shouting Congress members trooped into the Well.

 They shouted slogans against the dictatorial attitude of the government and those asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his silence over Lalitgate and Vyapam scam.

 Tanashahi nahi chalegi, nahi chalegi (dictatorial attitude will not be tolerated) and Pradhan Mantri chuppi todo, chuppi todo (Prime Minister break our silence), they shouted.

 Deputy Chairman P J Kurien called on K N Balagopal (CPI-M) who had given a notice under rule 267 seeking suspension of the business to discuss alleged impropriety by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in helping controversial former IPL head Lalit Modi and corruption in Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.

 I want to speak but House should be in order, Balagopal said, adding that the ministers involved should resign and these issues should be properly investigated.

  Government was infringing on his personal rights as it was not complying with parliamentary procedures, he alleged.

  Kurien initially said he would not adjourn the House. I am not going to adjourn. Why should I adjourn? I am going to sit here, he said, adding we can discuss any subject you want... ok, you shout I am not going to adjourn.

 But as the Congress members remained unrelenting, he adjourned the House till 1200 hours.
