New Delhi, Aug 12 (IANS) The Lok Sabha was on Friday adjourned sine die marking the conclusion of the monsoon session of Parliament — which was the ninth session of the 16th Lok Sabha.
In her valedictory address, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan described the session as highly productive and fruitful.
Earlier, the house unanimously passed a resolution on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and resolved to “restore” the confidence of the people in general, particularly the youth, amid thumping of desks.
Congress leader Mallikarjaun Kharge suggested that in view of the deteriorating situation in the state the house should pass a resolution.
Responding to him, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the upper house had passed a similar resolution earlier this week and the government was more than willing to pass one such resolution in the lower house too.
However, on the suggestions from members including Saugata Roy and Sudip Bandyopadhyay of Trinamool Congress, the Speaker read out the resolution.
Among others, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was also present on the occasion.
The Rajya Sabha has also been adjourned sine die.
