In the wake of continued disruption in both houses of Parliament, President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday was compelled chastise all concerned, especially the Opposition whose acts of omission and commission ensured business does not get transacted. Minister of State, Prime Minister’s Office, Jitendra Singh. and BJP leader was quoted as saying it was a shame that no less a personality than President Pranab Mukherjee was compelled to make an observation in the manner in which Parliament was being disrupted.

President Pranab Mukherjee ripped into Parliamentarians expressing strong displeasure over the continued logjam in Parliament said “For God’s sake, do your job.” President’s address was an outcome of continuous adjournment of both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha ever since the winter session of Parliament has began on November 16, as both ruling and opposition MPs have squabbled over PM Narendra Modi’s decision to scrap high value currency notes.
