Rajya Sabha logjam over Sadhvi Niranjan’s remarks ends finally

The truce was arrived during a meeting of leaders with Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari where it was decided that he would endorse Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement in the House to end the impasse as well as make a fresh appeal on behalf of the House to “all members of Parliament, ministers and leaders of all political parties to maintain civility at all costs in public discourse”.

The leaders met the Chairman in his chamber after Rajya Sabha witnessed three adjournments in the pre-lunch session.

The fresh appeal was made by Ansari while welcoming a Romanian Parliamentary delegation present in the House.

“This House, while acknowledging the statement of Prime Minister, made in this House on the 4th of December, appeals to all members of the Parliament, ministers and leaders of all political parties to maintain civility at all costs in public discourse, for the successful functioning of Parliamentary democracy and to uphold our commitment to constitutional values,” Ansari said in the House that led to end of the stalemate.

Earlier, when the House met for the day, deputy leader of Congress Anand Sharma pressed for moving a resolution condemning controversial remarks by any minister or member but it did not name Jyoti.
