Both the Houses of Parliament adjourned for the day following uproar over Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s democracy remarks in London and other issues. In the Lok Sabha, when the House met after the first adjournment after 2 PM, the scene was no different. Treasury bench members raised slogans 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, the Presiding Officer adjourned the House for the day.
In the morning when the House assembled for the day, ruling party members and opposition members raised slogans against each other. 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, similar scenes were witnessed. When the House reassembled after first adjournment at 2 PM, Leader of the House Piyush Goyal raised the issue of Congress leader comments. He said his remarks are an insult of Parliament and he must tender his apology.
