Parliament Highlights: Lok Sabha adjourned till tomorrow
- Parliament Winter Session: Opposition parties earlier said that they will ensure smooth functioning on the floor today and end the stalemate in both houses of Parliament.
Din continued to prevail on the third day of the Parliament Winter Session as opposition parties' demand for revocation of the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha MPs was rejected by chairman Venkaiah Naidu yet again.
While the Opposition raised slogans of “we want justice” in Lok Sabha, the suspended lawmakers sat on dharna in front of the Gandhi statue inside the Parliament premises.
After a chaotic beginning to the Winter Session of Parliament on Monday, the stalemate in the Rajya Sabha was expected to end as opposition parties had said they would maintain House order and take part in the proceedings on Wednesday.
On Monday, 12 lawmakers were suspended for the remainder of Parliament winter session under Rule 256 for their “unruly and violent behaviour” on the last day of the monsoon session on August 11. The leaders included six from Congress, two each from TMC and Shiv Sena and one each from CPM and CPI. This was the biggest such action in the history of the Upper House.
