RS repeatedly adjourned over Coalgate, Modi

The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday saw repeated adjournments over BJP’s accusations against the government on the missing coal-block allocation files and Congress members seeking resignation of
Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.

As the house met after its two earlier adjournments, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members were on their feet protesting against the government response on the ‘missing files’ relating to coal block allocations.

Meanwhile, Congress members showed banners against Narendra Modi over alleged fake shootouts in the state.

Telugu Desam Party members also sought to raise their concern over the proposed division of Andhra Pradesh.

BJP’s M Venkaiah Naidu said attempts were being made to shield the corrupt in coal block allocations. ‘We can’t be spectators to loot. Irrelevant files had been given to CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation),’ he said.

A seemingly exasperated deputy chairman PJ Kurien asked members if they did not want to take up the land acquisition bill. ‘We have to transact a very important bill,’ he said. Looking towards the treasury benches, he asked the members not to display posters. As the din continued, he adjourned the house till 2 pm.
