Vaishnav had just started the statement that the commotion intensified. He could not be heard due to the uproar. The Deputy Chairman termed the attitude of the opposition parties as “unparliamentary” and urged the Union Minister to lay the statement on the Table of the House. After this Vaishnav laid the statement on the Table of the House. After this the Deputy Chairman adjourned the proceedings for the day.
The government has already vehemently refuted the reports about spying of Indians through Pegasus software. Vaishnav had said in the Lok Sabha recently that these allegations made just before the monsoon session of Parliament are an attempt to tarnish the image of Indian democracy.
Asana’s permission is needed…
Earlier, as soon as the proceedings of the House started at 12 noon, Deputy Chairman Harivansh called the name of the member for the Question Hour but the opposition members started creating ruckus. The Deputy Speaker said, “Question Hour is for the questions of the members… Question and answer is very important for the members… You don’t want to run the House… You go to your places.”
Even after this, the commotion of the members continued. Seeing the commotion in the House not stopping, the Deputy Chairman adjourned the proceedings of the House till 2 o’clock. In the morning, when the sitting of the House started, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu got the necessary documents laid on the Table of the House. Meanwhile, Congress member Digvijay Singh tried to raise the issue of Income Tax Department raids on various premises of media group Dainik Bhaskar, while Trinamool Congress members tried to raise the issue related to alleged espionage. But the Chairman did not allow them and said that the permission of the Chair is needed to raise any issue.
Meanwhile, other members started creating ruckus over different issues. Some members came even further from their places. Naidu appealed to the members to return to their places and allow the proceedings of the House. Amidst the uproar, he said that it seems that some members do not want the issues related to the people to be discussed in the House. Seeing that there was no order in the house, he adjourned the proceedings till 12 noon within just two minutes of the commencement of the meeting.
