Congress party leaders, led by president Rahul Gandhi and opposition have staged a protest in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue at the Parliament, demanding the central Government to scrap the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016.
Congress leaders raised slogans, ‘Chowkidar hi chor hai’. The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned due to the continued uproar on Wednesday by opposition parties. The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till 12 noon.
Since the commencement of the Rajya Sabha session, the ruckus erupting every other day has been hindering the proceedings of the Parliament.
Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 was listed for business today at Rajya Sabha and Government in all likelihood would try to pass it while the Congress will lead a strong opposition to it.
