Trinamool Congress members alleged the central government was indulging in “politics of vendetta” and walked out of the Rajya Sabha on Thursday.
Soon after the house met for the day at 11 a.m.during the Budget Session, Trinamool Congress member Derek O’Brien levelled the charge against the government that it was harassing his party’s members for opposing demonetistion.
“Government is indulging in politics of vendetta against the opposition. This is a very serious issue. We may have political differences on issues but this is not done,” O’Brien said.
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi while replying to this charge said, the agencies were investigating a chit fund scam and there was no political vendetta against anybody.
