New Delhi: Members of Parliament (MPs) of several opposition parties, including the Congress, on Thursday took out a ‘Tiranga March’ from Parliament House to Vijay Chowk after the completion of the ongoing Budget Session of Parliament.
The administration is alert about the march of MPs. Vijay Chowk has turned into a cantonment. Delhi Police as well as central force personnel have been deployed on the spot to maintain law and order.
During the march, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge told reporters, “The Modi government speaks a lot about democracy, but it does not run under it. The budget of 50 lakh crores was passed in 12 minutes. They say the opposition is not interested. But whenever we got up to speak, he did not allow us to speak. Our JPC’s demand was also rejected. Our question is, why are you afraid of forming a JPC? ”
“To divert the issue, issue of seeking apology from Rahul Gandhi brought up. The PM himself does not present in the House. During this time they stay on tour.”
According to sources, 13 opposition parties have boycotted the tea party organized by the Lok Sabha Speaker on the last day of the Parliament session. While TMC and NCP will join the tea party.
Congress organisation general secretary KC Venugopal had said, alleging that the ruling party was solely responsible for the disruption of the session. Earlier on Wednesday morning, opposition leaders discussed the future course of action in the budget session of Parliament.
Apart from Kharge, leaders of Congress, DMK, Shiv Sena (UBT), Trinamool Congress and many other parties attended the meeting held in the Parliament House room of Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge.
