Parliament washout: Finance Bill not taken up

Day 6 Budget session Lok Sabha business washed out

Both the Houses of Parliament have been adjourned, the Lok Sabha for the day and the Rajya Sabha up to 2 PM on Tuesday following continued protests by opposition parties on various issues.

The government's insistence on completion of the financial business prompted the Opposition parties to make a dash to the Speaker to bring to her notice the "unusual" step to list the Finance Bill and the application of the guillotine without informing them.

While the Congress and the Trinamool Congress raised the issue of Rs 12,700 crore fraud in Punjab National Bank, the TRS sought increased reservation quota and AIADMK wanted the government to set up Cauvery management board.

With the Opposition parties refusing to return to their seats, the Speaker adjourned the House for almost one hour till 12 noon.

Both the Houses have failed to function since the second leg of Budget Session began on March 5.

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

"We will wait to see whether the opposition decides against or for undertaking legislative business in Parliament".

The payments stopped without explanation, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Bloomberg reported last week that the retailer was making preparations for a liquidation of its domestic business.

The scenes were no different in Rajya Sabha.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar hit out at Congress for the parliament impasse.

"Mr Salim said the National Democratic Alliance government and its "estranged and potential" allies had created such a situation that discussions and debate were not taking place in Parliament on crucial issues, including price rise, farmers" distress, economic situation and allocations for the key ministries.

"They (the government) are finding excuses to avoid discussing the Nirav Modi and PNB scandal", he said.

Members from NDA ally TDP were heard raising slogans like: "We want justice".

If the government is trying to reach out to the opposition parties in any manner, they are neither talking about it nor is any move visible.
