Opposition take out ‘Tiranga March’ from Parliament


Opposition MPs on Thursday took out a ‘Tiranga March’ from Parliament to Vijay Chowk on the last day of the Budget session of Parliament in the national capital.
Congress leader K.C. Venugopal who participated in the march said, “The government itself is not letting the Parliament run. Why do they not want to discuss the Adani scam?” Proceedings of both houses of Parliament have witnessed repeated adjournments since the beginning of the Budget Session.
The parties will also hold a press conference in the Constitution Club after the march, they said. Meanwhile, according to sources three political parties including the Congress will skip the ‘Evening Tea’ meeting to be hosted by the Lok Sabha Speaker today.
The decision for the ‘tricolour march’ came in the meeting on Wednesday morning which was attended by the leaders of like-minded opposition parties chaired by Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge’s chamber in the Parliament building.
Leaders DMK, Trinamool Congress, AAP, Samajwadi Party, RJD, CPI(M), CPI, and Muslim League were among those who attended the meeting. “Fighting in a democratic way is our duty. If the government is not listening, it is stubborn. If you want democracy to be alive then listening to the opposition is important,” Kharge said today on the last day of ongoing Budget session of Parliament.
