When it reassembled at 1229 hours, Congress members were
again on their feet raising slogans as BJD member started to speak on the debate, which was initiated on November 16 and remained inconclusive as the House was stalled.
The debate had resumed briefly on November 24 for one hour but could not proceed further due to continuous din.
Amid noisy scenes, Deo said, “We support any move taken by the Government of India for corruption and black money.” But as the sloganeering continued, Ansari adjourned the House till 1400 hours.
Uproar by the Opposition members continued when the House reconvened.
With the Prime Minister present in the House as demanded by the Opposition for days, Deputy Chairman P J Kurien went ahead to resume discussion on demonitisation.
However, Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said Modi never came to the House but always spoke outside the Parliament.
Members from the ruling side objected to this and said discussion should begin.
In the din, Congress leaders and those from the BSP and others trooped into the well of the House demanding apology from the PM and shouting slogans asking the government to return people’s money back into their own hands.
Agitated over this, I&B Minister Venkaiah Naidu said the Opposition has been exposed and Congress should apologise for the 60 years of misrule.
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi also objected to the demand for apology by the Prime Minister questioning whether he should apologise for targeting black money hoarders.
He said it was the Congress which should apologise to the poor for what they done in the 60 years of rule.
Kurien kept insisting that the Opposition’s demand was that Modi should be present and now since he is here, the discussion should start.
With the protests showing no signs of abating, Kurien adjourned the House till tomorrow morning.
Earlier, when the Upper House met for the day, Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’Brien said Mamata’s life was endangered last night when she was flying from Patna to Kolkata on an IndiGo flight.
He said the plane was low on fuel, still it was made to hover over the Kolkata airport for upto 30 minutes.
About 200 km from Kolkata, the ATC informed that the flight was 8th in landing sequence but the pilot relayed a message that it was low on fuel and should be allowed to give priority landing, O’Brien said.
Despite the warning, the flight was made to hover over the Kolkata airport for at least 15 minutes and by some count 30 minutes, he said, adding besides Mamata, there were 100 other passengers on the flight whose life was put to danger.
