Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day amid ruckus by TDP, AIADMK

Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day amid ruckus by TDP, AIADMK

In a bid to break the logjam in Parliament, an aggressive government on Tuesday pushed for the passage of the Finance Bill in the Lok Sabha prompting the Opposition to accuse it of bulldozing the financial business in the House.

The House was scheduled to take up the key Finance Bill 2018 and Appropriation bills for FY 2017-18 and 2018-19. Members from Telugu Desam Party, an ally of NDA and Y S R Congress party also trooped into the well demanding special status to Andhra Pradesh.

Both the Houses of Parliament have failed to transact any business since the beginning of the second part of the Budget session of Parliament on March 5.

"Mr Salim said the National Democratic Alliance government and its "estranged and potential" allies had created such a situation that discussions and debate were not taking place in Parliament on crucial issues, including price rise, farmers" distress, economic situation and allocations for the key ministries. Soon after it assembled, the Upper House was adjourned till 2 PM as noisy protests continued, with the Trinamool Congress and other parties insisting that a discussion on the bank scam be held under rules that entail voting.

If the government is trying to reach out to the opposition parties in any manner, they are neither talking about it nor is any move visible.


This, the Opposition alleged, showed the "arrogance" of the government. "We can't let a constitutional crisis occur because of an adamant opposition", the leader added. But Naidu said a discussion can be allowed under rule 176, which was not acceptable to the protestors.

The scenes were no different in Rajya Sabha.

After both the houses were adjourned early on the day, Congress hit back at BJP.

Mahajan tried to take up the Question Hour - but in vain because of the din. However, the members in the Well, including those from TDP and AIADMK, continued to raise slogans and displaying placards. If this is the way MPs are behaving, I will adjourn the House.
