Lok Sabha stalemate continues, House adjourned for seventh day

Day 6 Budget session Lok Sabha business washed out

Members from the Congress, the Trinamool Congress and some other opposition parties protested against the banking fraud committed by Nirav Modi and his associates, while the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Congress demonstrated for the special economic status for Andhra Pradesh.

Major Opposition parties have urged Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to prevent the government from using the guillotine to push through the Appropriation Bill and the Finance Bill.

Members from TDP, which quit the central government last week but remains part of the ruling NDA, were demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh.

The government has so far failed to bring in any legislation in parliament in the budget session, which resumed on Mar 5, due to the repeated disruptions by the opposition parties. They said this was the government's "unilateral move to bulldoze all the financial business without discussing them on the floor of the House".

When the Lok Sabha re-assembled at Noon after its first adjournment, Congress-led opposition again trooped into the well, raising slogans.

Another said, " Taylor Swifts Delicate MV is a complete rip off of Spike Jonze's Kenzo advert with Margaret Qualley . The setting, color palette, choreography, everything", one person wrote.

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. "We can't let a constitutional crisis occur because of an adamant opposition", the leader added.

Mr Naidu said the disturbances in the House shows Parliament in a poor light. He said rule 169 of Rules of Procedures of Conduct of Rajya Sabha requires 15 conditions to be met to have such a discussion and his notice meets all of them.

Soon after this, the House was adjourned.

An anguished Kurien said "This is not fair".

Earlier in the morning, the BJP parliamentary party met and issued a whip to party MPs to be present in Parliament for the next two days while hitting out at the opposition for "not allowing Parliament to function". "I don't agree with this.", he said before adjourning the proceedings for the day.
