  • Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourns the House as MPs gather near the well of Parliament over various issues in New Delhi on March 7

Both Houses of Parliament could not transact any business for the seventh day Tuesday - the Lok Sabha failed to take up Finance Bill 2018-19 due to disruption of proceedings by opposition parties over various issues.

Different parties, including Congress, AIADMK and TDP, also disrupted the proceedings as they trooped into the Well raising slogans and holding placards.

While the Congress and the Trinamool Congress were raising the issue of Punjab National Bank scam, the TRS sought increased reservation quota and the AIADMK wanted the government to constitute the Cauvery management board.

The Speaker hardly called for taking up of listed questions, members from Andhra Pradesh belonging to Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YSR Congress Party entered into the well carrying placards demanding Special Category status for Andhra Pradesh.

The opposition leaders wrote the letter after an item putting to vote in the House the Outstanding Demands for Grants in respect of the Union Budget 2018-19 appeared in the revised list of day's business.

Addressing a news conference here, Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader and Lok Sabha member Mohammad Salim said the opposition parties had written to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, lodging their protest and seeking her intervention to allow the House function in a normal manner.

Soon after the Lok Sabha was adjourned, Congress floor leader Mallikarjun Kharge said that the government was not willing to discuss the Punjab National Bank fraud issue after suspending all business. They will remain intact as per the Central government rules.

Earlier in the morning, the BJP parliamentary party met and issued a whip to party MPs to be present in Parliament for the next two days while hitting out at the opposition for "not allowing Parliament to function". He said rule 169 of Rules of Procedures of Conduct of Rajya Sabha requires 15 conditions to be met to have such a discussion and his notice meets all of them. Naidu said "people are being impatient and (protests) show Parliament in poor light".
