Budget session: Both Houses adjourned amid logjam, to meet on Thursday

Both the houses of the Parliament were adjourned amid a series of disruptions in the Parliament.

The Opposition MPs raised slogans demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee inquiry into the Adani issue which resulted in the adjourning of the Lok Sbha till 2 pm.

At 1:00 pm, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla called a meeting of party leaders in his office.

In the midst of the commotion, the Rajya Sabha was also adjourned, and Jagdeep Dhankar, the chairman, summoned an all-party meeting.

“I invite the floor leaders of all parties to my chamber at 11.30 am today. The House is adjourned to meet at 2 pm today,” Dhankhar said.

As requested by certain members, the Rajya Sabha chairman said that the Parliament wouldn’t meet on March 22 due to festivals.

Due to ongoing gridlock, the parliament has not been able to complete any significant business. The BJP has demanded an apology from Congressman Rahul Gandhi for his comments made in the UK, and several opposition parties want a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) investigation into the Hindenburg-Adani controversy.

The legislative budget session began on March 13 and will end on April 6.
