LS deadlock continues, Finance Bill not taken up

Earlier, both Question Hour and Zero Hour were washed out as scores of members from the TDP, Congress, AIADMK, TRS and Trinamool Congress trooped into the Well, forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the proceedings first for an hour.

The Lok Sabha has failed to transact substantial business on account of frequent disruptions since March 5 when the second leg of the Budget Session of Parliament commenced.

As soon as the House reassembled in the afternoon, some TDP and Congress members came near the Chair's podium holding placards.

Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu has rejected the opposition's demand for a discussion under rules which allow suspension of all listed business or entail voting (Rules 267 and 168).

"Therefore, we, the Opposition party members, would like to express our strong protest and demand an immediate intervention from you to protect the rights of the Parliament members", the memorandum read.

The BJP Parliamentary Party held its meeting on Tuesday morning, which was attended among others by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP chief Amit Shah and its patriarch Lal Krishna Advani, among others. They speak outside on democracy but don't practice it in Parliament. Congress president Rahul Gandhi however did mention that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was not talking about the PNB scam, alleging involvement of his daughter, in what seems like a tit for tat to the Karti development. "Congress doesn't have democracy in their genes".

He asked other parties to discuss the pending bills constructively. We have also issued a three-line whip to all our MPs.

Apart from the Nirav Modi case, the AIADMK demanded discussion on setting up of a Cauvery Water Management Board, while YRS Congress members protested over special category status for Andhra Pradesh. "If they decide against it, we will have to pass the finance bill amid the uproar", a senior party leader said.

"It's the job of the Parliamentary Affairs Minister to run the House". He said rule 169 of Rules of Procedures of Conduct of Rajya Sabha requires 15 conditions to be met to have such a discussion and his notice meets all of them.
