Criticising the Congress for “disrupting” Lok Sabha proceedings over the Gujarat hooch tragedy, the BJP on Monday accused it of setting a “bad precedent”.

Referring to the brief adjournment of Lok Sabha after the Congress members raised the issue of hooch tragedy vociferously, BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters that the ruling party “has restarted a bad, old tradition of not allowing the house to function.

“We want the Congress leadership, the Prime Minister and Leader of the House Pranab Mukherjee to explain the stand of the ruling party on such issues,” he said.

He said while “nothing prevents” the ruling party from raising any issue, “it is unfortunate that a situation is created which creates hurdles in the functioning of the House. They are setting a bad precedent which will have negative consequences”.
