Ram Gopal Yadav (SP) demanded that the government should
pay compensation of Rs 10 lakh each to the kin of all those who lost their lives due to hardship caused by demonetisation.
The Opposition members then trooped into the Well.
Kurien said the government is ready for discussion on both the issues and they should decide which of the two should be discussed first.
But Opposition members continued to shout slogans.
With his pleas going unheeded, Kurien adjourned the proceedings till noon.
When the House met again, Chairman Hamid Ansari called for Question Hour to be taken up, but the Opposition members were again on their feet raising objections.
Soon the members of Congress, TMC, Left, SP, BSP and DMK stood in the aisles and started raising slogans. Later, when they raised slogans of “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” the treasury bench members too joined them in shouting the same slogan.
“There is total agreement in the House,” the Chairman commented sarcastically and wondered why the House was not being allowed to run. As the din continued, Ansari adjourned the House till 2 pm.
When the House reassembled, protests continued as Opposition members kept on raising their demands.
Congress leader Azad demanded a statement from the Defence Minister on the Nagrota attack.
“Defence Minister should come and give the statement.
When such a big incident has happened…We want to know the status,” the Leader of Opposition said.
To which, Naqvi said, “The Operations are still on. We will give reply at an appropriate time.”
The Chair also said that the issue can be debated later.
“Where the country is one, all MPs are one. …What the Minister said is that the operation is going on. After that, information will be shared. We can have debate later,” the the Deputy Chairman said.
Congress member Rajiv Shukla said, “Many of our soldiers have died. Many have died standing in queue after demonetisation. We need to offer condolences to both in this House.”
Pramod Tiwari (Cong) said the House has tradition of offering condolences and it should do first.
“Modi government’s policies has been such that they is threat to our border security,” he said but did not elaborate.
To this, Deputy Chairman said, “With regard to obituary, we will do at an appropriate time.”
Amid noisy scenes, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said, “Our soldiers are fighting against enemies. We must be sensitive and united in our approach. Otherwise, it will give wrong message.” (MORE) PTI LUX
