Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) slammed Opposition parties for creating pandemonium in Parliament over the controversial remarks of Union minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, saying they were “insensitive” as they tried to scuttle the statement by Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Naxal attack.
“Opposition created hurdles in the functioning of Parliament for the second day. Their behaviour was improper,” Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesman Sudhanshu Trivedi said.
Referring to the walkout staged by Opposition in the Lok Sabha, he said it was an “insensitive” act as the Home Minister was to make a statement on the Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh in which 14 CRPF personnel were killed.
“At least, the Opposition should have listened to what the Home Minister had to say. But they chose to keep their narrow political agenda above the martyrdom of security personnel,” he said.
For the second day, Opposition disrupted Parliament resulting in washout of Rajya Sabha’s proceedings, as it created uproar to press for sacking of Jyoti for her controversial remarks but the government rejected the demand.
In both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, trouble started as soon as the Houses met for the day at 11 AM with members of Opposition parties like Trinamool Congress, Congress and Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) shouting slogans.
