Parliament adjourned twice over Opposition protest


New Delhi: The lower house of the Parliament was adjourned twice on Friday as a joint opposition took on the government for its decision to extend the Lok Sabha for three days. The opposition has termed the move as ‘authoritarian’.

The opposition pointed to the decision of extension of the Lok Sabha by three days, saying that they were not consulted.

The members of the opposition from the opposition parties like the Congress, left and the TMC rushed to the well of the house protesting against the decision.

Congress Leader Mallikarjun Kharge demanded the intervention of the speaker on the matter on the decision of the cabinet committee on Parliamentary affairs to extend the session by three more days.

As the slogans and counter-slogans continued, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House for 15 minutes at 1115 hours when the Question Hour was underway.
