Budget session of Parliament ends today

New Delhi: The second phase of the Budget session of Parliament ended on Thursday, as Rajya Sabha was adjourned sine die amid protests and slogans demanding a JPC probe into the Adani issue.

The Budget session, which began on March 13, was scheduled to end on April 6.

The Upper House adjourned sine die post-lunch after a point of order was raised by DMK MP Tiruchi Siva and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar addressed the House.

In his address, the Chairman of the House said that the productivity of the House was only 6.4 percent in the second leg of the Budget session.

Dhankhar also extended the suspension of INC MP Rajani Ashokrao Patil till the Privileges Committee submitted its report on the matter. Patil was suspended on February 10.

Meanwhile, the Lok Sabha already adjourned sine die earlier in the day amid loud protests and sloganeering over the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi.

As soon as the House met for the day, Opposition members stormed into the well of the House and started raising slogans.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said that behaviour of Opposition members had lowered the dignity of the House and they had “systematically” disrupted proceedings.

Since, the session began on March 13, the Lok Sabha has seen repeated adjournments due to protests by the treasury benches, who demanded an apology from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his “democracy under attack” remarks in London, and Opposition benches demanding JPC probe against the Adani Group.

Meanwhile, several Opposition parties, including the Congress, took out a ‘Tricolour March’ from Parliament House to Vijay Chowk on Thursday, alleging that “democracy is under attack” by the BJP.

A total of 13 parties, including the Congress, also decided to skip the “Evening Tea” meeting hosted by the Speaker on the last day of the Parliament.
