New Delhi: The two houses of Parliament again witnessed repeated disruptions over Union Minister Ananth Kumar Hegde’s remarks about the constitution.
Wednesday’s session the Congress had given an adjournment motion notice in Lok Sabha and a suspension of business notice in Rajya Sabha. The party’s adjournment notice in the lower house comes over Union Minister Ananth Kumar Hegde’s remarks about the constitution. Mr Hegde has said that his party, the ruling BJP, will “soon change the Constitution”, which mentions the word “secular”.
Ananth Kumar Hegde also attacked what he called a “new fad where people project themselves as secular”. However, the BJP has distanced itself from the minister’s comment. In the upper house, the Congress has given suspension of business notice under rule 267 over PM Modi’s statement against former PM Manmohan Singh and others.
