RS adjourned till 2 pm due to uproar over various issues

Amid pandemonium, Minister of State for Finance Shiv Pratap Shukla introduced The Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill 2018 in the Lok Sabha.

The Bill was introduced in the backdrop protests over the almost Rs 12,700 crore fraud at Punjab National Bank in which businessman Nirav Modi is allegedly involved. He questioned the provision of seizing assets of an accused before he was proven guilty. Soon after this, the House was adjourned. Monday was the sixth consecutive day when the House witnessed bedlam.

Members from TDP, which quit the central government last week but remains part of the ruling NDA, were demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh.

The Congress and the TMC have been raising the issue of bank frauds.

Chief Minister and Telugu Desam national president N. Chandrababu Naidu has made a decision to play it safe in the Rajya Sabha elections and not take any risks.

Both Question Hour and Zero Hour were washed out as scores of members from the TDP, Congress, AIADMK, TRS and Trinamool Congress trooped into the Well, forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the proceedings first for an hour.

The Congress and the AIADMK members were also on their feet. "When there is no order, how can there be a point of order?"

"Hence we are strongly asking him (to honour the promises made in the Reorganisation Act as well as those made in Rajya Sabha by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh),"Mr Naidu said". I am allowing every issue to be raised and find no reason to disturb the proceedings.

However, when the House reassembled at noon, the protests continued and no legislative business could be carried out. Making it obvious that TDP ministers were pulled off after the minister's remarks Naidu in his assembly speech earlier during the days said that it was unfortunate that state is getting raw deal and that they had to withdraw after his comments.

"Referring to BJP leaders' statements that funds for various development works and schemes were coming from the centre, the Chief Minister said that those funds came from people's money". The protests continued as the House met again at 2 pm.

Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien tried to run the House but failed as the agitating members did not relent.

The Congress has been demanding a discussion on the matter and even staged a protest near Mahatma Gandhi statue in the Parliament.

Congress - the main opposition party - had earlier moved a notice in the Rajya Sabha under rule 168 seeking a discussion on the billion dollars Punjab National Bank fraud case.
