Both the Houses of Parliament face frequent disruptions following Opposition protests over price rise and other issues. The Lok Sabha was adjourned till 2 P. M. today following uproar by the Opposition parties against the imposition of the GST on essential commodities and others. When the house reassembled at 12 noon after the first adjournment, the members of DMK, TRS and Left Parties trooped to the well demanding for roll back of the GST imposed on the essential commodities. They also demanded for revoking the suspension of four members.
The Chair repeatedly urged the agitating members to go back to their seats and take part in the discussion as the government is ready for discussion. The sloganeering Opposition members did not pay heed to the repeated appeals. As pandemonium continued, the Speaker adjourned the house till 2 P. M.
The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till 2 P.M. When the house met after a second adjournment at 12.18 P. M., suspended MP Sanjay Singh refused to leave the house despite repeated appeals by the Deputy Chairman Harivansh. He continued to protest over his suspension and Gujarat hooch tragedy. This forced the Chair to adjourn the House till 2 P.M.
Earlier, when the house met after the first adjournment at 12 Noon, Opposition members including Congress, Aam Aadmi Party and others trooped to the well. Amid ruckus, the Chair announced the suspension of Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh for his unruly behaviour in the house yesterday. Afterwards, the Deputy Chairman repeatedly asked him to leave the house, but he continued his protest leading to adjournment of the house till 12.18 P. M.
In the morning, when the Upper House assembled for the day, it was adjourned till 12 Noon following Opposition protests over various issues including price rise and Gujarat hooch tragedy. Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu rejected adjournment notices moved by members from Congress, TMC, Left, Aam Aadmi Party and Samajwadi party. Following this, the Opposition members created noisy scenes.
