LS proceedings washed out for entire week

The Lok Sabha proceedings were washed out for the fifth straight day, as members from parties including the TDP and the AIADMK, continued their protests on various issues.

This was the first week of Parliament's second leg of the Budget session, in which the Finance Bill 2018 and Demands for Grants are needed to be passed.

However, the Lok Sabha continued to witness ruckus and failed to transact any business during the entire week. Opposition Congress and TMC were up in arms against the government over the Rs 12,700 crore fraud at country's second largest PSU lender PNB and continued with their vociferous protests in the House. Andhra Pradesh parties -- TDP and YSR Congress -- pressed for special status to be granted to the state. Disappointed over the Centre not granting the status, the TDP pulled out its two ministers -- Raju and Y S Chowdary -- from the central government. The party continues to be an NDA ally. -- PTI
