NEW DELHI: Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha proceedings were disrupted on Monday over the amended citizenship law and the issue of NPR.
The slogans were heard as soon as the day's proceeding in the Lok Sabha started. Some of the opposition lawmakers invoked the shooting incidents that have happened in the national capital and were heard shouting, "Goli maarna bandh karo; desh ko todna bandh karo" (Stop firing bullets, stop breaking the nation).
As part of the question hour, Shiv Sena Member of Parliament, Hemant T Godse, raised the first question over skill development upon which Mahendra Nath Pandey, Union minister for skill development and entrepreneurship, replied with necessary provisions and steps taken on the issue.
However, throughout the question and answer, the opposition members kept shouting to express their discontent over different issues. They also demanded an explanation from the Prime Minister and asked for his presence in the house.
"Say no to CAA", "save our democracy" and "save our Constitution" were some of the slogans raised by them.
Rajya Sabha proceedings too were adjourned for close to an hour after opposition parties sought to raise the issue of NPR and amended citizenship law.
Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu first disallowed notices given by several opposition members to discuss the issue and then adjourned proceedings till noon after MPs belonging to the Congress, TMC, Left and BSP rose to raise the issue.
