Updated: March 14, 2023 2:51 pm

Lok Sabha could not function even today. The proceedings of the House could not go on due to the aggressive stand of the BJP on the issue of Rahul Gandhi in the Lok Sabha and sloganeering by the opposition on the Adani issue. Due to the uproar, the proceedings of the Lok Sabha had to be adjourned till 11 am on March 15.

The Congress has also become aggressive on the demand of discussion and apology from the BJP on Rahul Gandhi’s statement. Congress MP Pramod Tiwari said that if they want a discussion, then Prime Minister Modi should also apologise for what he said on the soil of China and Korea. That too should be discussed. Shakti Singh Gohil, while referring to the statements made by Prime Minister Modi on foreign tours, asked whether this did not defame the country.

Earlier both Houses of Parliament adjourned till 2 PM following uproar over Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s democracy remarks in London and other issues. In the Lok Sabha, when the House met this morning, treasury bench members started sloganeering against Mr. Gandhi, demanding his apology.

The opposition countered them, with Congress, DMK and other party members in the well citing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s earlier reported comments. Amid uproar, Speaker Om Birla repeatedly urged the protesting members for order in the House, saying he would allow discussion on any issue. But the agitating members did not pay heed leading to the adjournment of the House till 2 PM.

In the Rajya Sabha, after congratulating team RRR and Elephant Whisperers for getting Oscar awards, Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar disallowed the adjournment notices moved by the opposition parties over setting up of a JPC on the Adani issue and other matters. Leader of the House Piyush Goyal raised the issue of Congress leader comments. He said his remarks are an insult to Parliament and he must tender his apology.

Countering Mr. Goyal, Congress members trooped into the well raising Adani issue. Members from Aam Aadmi Party were also in the well over the issue while MPs from DMK, TMC, Left, NCP and others were on their feet. As the pandemonium continued, the House was adjourned till 2 PM.
