Following rallies by the opposition over price increases and other concerns, both Houses of Parliament frequently experience disruptions. When the Lok Sabha reconvened at 2 PM today, lawmakers of the DMK and TMC left the chamber in protest of the administration. The opposition members asked the chair to lift the suspension of congressmen for the post-lunch meeting to debate the price increase issue as the house convened. As the administration is prepared to tackle the matter of price increases in the house, DMK leader A. Raja asked the Chair to lift the suspension of four Congress members.
Following opposition demonstrations against price increases and other problems, both Houses of Parliament frequently experience disruptions.
The administration is prepared to examine all concerns, including price increases, from the very first day, according to Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi, but opposition members wasted the valuable time of the house by yelling slogans and holding up signs in the well. The DMK and TMC members staged a walkout from the chamber while the Chair kept discussing subjects of critical public significance.
Meanwhile, demonstrations against a number of topics, including price increases and the Gujarat hooch tragedy, persisted today in Rajya Sabha. Sanjay Singh, a suspended Aam Aadmi Party member, entered the well while shouting when the House reconvened following the third adjournment at 2 PM. There were further AAP members in the well. They ignored the Presiding Officer’s requests to allow the House to conduct business. He then called the House to adjourn for the day. The House had already seen several adjournments before.
Sanjay Singh, an Aam Aadmi Party member, was suspended because of his disruptive actions. Then he was told to leave the House, but he refused. Before the day’s proceedings were over, the House was forced to adjourn twice..
The opposition protested when the Upper House met in the morning for the day on a number of problems, including the price hike and the Gujarat hooch catastrophe. Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu refused requests from members of the Congress, TMC, Left, Aam Aadmi Party, and Samajwadi Party to adjourn the meeting. The opposition members then began to act out in a boisterous manner.
