Parl proceedings washed out for the third day

Thursday, March 08, 2018

New Delhi: The proceedings in both Houses of Parliament were washed out for the third straight day today, as opposition parties as well as NDA allies Shiv Sena, TDP and AIADMK stalled business vociferously protesting on issues like vandalisation of statues and the banking fraud.

While the Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day just after noon, the Rajya Sabha witnessed similar scenes and was first adjourned till 2 PM and then for the day. The Upper House also saw Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu expressing concern over the vandalisation of statues in different parts of the country and saying "the statues were vandalised. ... It's a shame. It's mad, mad, mad .... Whoever does it, whether it is in Tamil Nadu, whether it is West Bengal or Tripura."

When the Lok Sabha met for the day, members of various parties, including TDP, Shiv Sena, TRS, YSR Congress, AIADMK and Trinamool Congress started raising slogans on different issues, forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who had taken up the Question Hour, to adjourn the proceedings for an hour within minutes.

She was visibly upset when she left the House even as the din continued. Amid the ruckus, a Lok Sabha official had to repeat loudly that the House has been adjourned till noon. While Congress members were pressing for a reply from the Prime Minister on the Rs 13,000 crore bank fraud allegedly involving diamantaire Nirav Modi, members of AIADMK and AAP were in the Well, holding photos of Periyar, and raising slogans condemning the vandalism in Vellore in which the statue of Dravidian icon Thanthai Periyar was defaced.  The TRS members were raising slogans demanding a hike in Telangana's quota in reservation, while TDP pressed for grant of special status for Andhra Pradesh and the Shiv Sena sought classical language status for Marathi.

The AIADMK, which has been protesting for the past two days seeking creation of Cauvery water management board, today also protested against vandalisation of statues, while the YSR Congress demanded implementation of the AP Reorganisation Act.
