The proceedings in the Parliament were continuously hampered by the Opposition’s sloganeering to take up the allegations at Business tycoon Gautam Adani levelled by the US-based Hindenberg report.

The Opposition has been raising demands to constitute a Joint Parliamentary Committee to have a discussion over the Adani issue. In this regard, 11 notices were sent to the Rajya Sabha speaker under Rule 267, which were turned down.

BJP Demands Public Apology From Rahul Gandhi 

Meanwhile, the Centre has been asking Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to apologise to all the Indians for “insulting” the nation on the foreign soil. Gandhi, during his visit to UK, had made several comments over the Indian democracy.

He said that Indian democracy is under attack and asked for the intervention from the governments of UK and US.

Top officials of the Congress have stated that Rahul Gandhi had said nothing such that would require an apology while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided not to let the matter go without having their demand fulfilled.

This caused a stalement in both the house, due to which no transaction of legislative business could take place.

The Rajya Sabha resumed at 11 in the morning to discuss businesses regarding the functioning of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Ministry of Textiles among other ministries.
