Parliament Adjourned Again Till Tuesday

Date:

NEW DELHI — Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned till Tuesday, amid vociferous protests by both treasury benches and opposition members over the issue of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s speech in London.

As soon as Lok Sabha convened at 2 p.m., Rajendra Agrawal, who was in the Chair, asked for papers to be laid in the House.

However, Congress members came into the well of House, shouting slogans “We want JPC” while treasury benches were also seen shouting slogans “Rahul Gandhi Maafi Maango” (Rahul Gandhi apologise).

Agrawal urged protesting members to return to their seats, saying that they should allow some business to be transacted.

“All issues would be discussed,” he said.

Agrawal also said that the Speaker has disallowed all adjournment motions given by various members.

As protests continued from both treasury benches and opposition members, he adjourned the House till Tuesday.

Rajya Sabha too was adjourned by chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar within minutes of the upper House convening at 2 p.m., amid protests. — IANS
