New Delhi, Aug. 11 (ANI): Disruptions continued today in parliament, which has remained deadlocked since the beginning of the Monsoon Session last month.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi has reportedly told her party MPs to toughen their stand against the government, which is seeking to introduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill for passage in the Rajya Sabha today.
Tuesday’s proceedings were marked by raucous sloganeering from the opposition, and was equally countered by the treasury bench led by Parliamentary Affairs.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has praised Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for attempting to end the logjam in parliament.
The Samajwadi Party chief had yesterday hit out at the Congress Party, saying, “Some people are misusing parliament to stop the pace of the country’s growth.”
Mulayam Singh’s party is an important constituent of the opposition. (ANI)
