Yesterday in Lok Sabha! 12 August,2015

Lok Sabha on Tuesday witnessed unabated ruckus with sloganeering Congress members holding placards protesting against the government; even as the government assured that it was ready to discuss all issues.

Notwithstanding the pandemonium, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan continued with the Question Hour amidst the din of slogan-shouting by Congress members who were in the Well. Left members joined the Congress in the anti-government protest.

SP members, along with those from RJD and JD (U), also stormed the well demanding release of caste census data.

As unrelenting Opposition members continued the protests, while the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said the government was ready to discuss all issues.

He said the Lalit Modi controversy and the opposition demand for External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's resignation raised by the Opposition "is just an excuse, they want to stop GST Bill."

The Speaker's appeal to the protesting members in the Well to return to their seats fell on deaf ears. While saying their conduct was unruly, the speaker said "I am not going to adjourn the House."

Earlier, the Speaker rejected notices for adjournment motions moved by various members, including members from Congress and the Left on various issues. Mahajan then took up Question Hour as the noisy protests continued.
