Parliament highlights: Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day

BJP ministers and leaders fanned out across the country to allege Congress of spreading “falsehood” with an “amazing audacity” over the Rafale issue, while the opposition party gave privilege notices against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government -- only to be countered with a notice against Rahul Gandhi by the ruling party MPs.The BJP’s multi-pronged attack followed the Supreme Court ruling on Friday that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the procurement of 36 Rafale jets from France. The court dismissed all petitions seeking an investigation into alleged irregularities in the Rs 58,000 crore deal.In Parliament, Congress gave notices of breach of privilege in both houses, demanding an explanation from the government on why it provided the Supreme Court “wrong” information on the Rafale deal.
