On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the third day in a row.
Congress MP Ranjit Ranjan issued a suspension of business notice in Rajya Sabha on Thursday, demanding a debate on the Adani issue. In a notice under Rule 267, Ranjit Ranjan said, “Government has failed in constituting a Joint Parliamentary Committee to investigate the serious charges of corporate fraud, political corruption, stock market manipulation and financial mismanagement against the Adani group”.
While, Congress Syed Naseer Hussain gave suspension of business notice under Rule 267 in Rajya Sabha on “worrying trend of declining freedom of speech and expression in the country”. The Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha will reconvene on Thursday to debate the Union Budget 2023, following a daylong adjournment on Wednesday due to protests from both sides.
On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the third day in a row, with the Congress and other opposition parties insisting on a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the Adani-Hindenburg row and BJP members demanding an apology from Rahul Gandhi for remarks he made in London.
The second half of the budget session began on Monday and has been fraught with disruptions and commotion over the last three days. The BJP has accused Congress President Rahul Gandhi of disparaging India’s institutions on foreign soil.
