Lok Sabha disrupted, adjoiurned again over demonetisation

IANS  |  New Delhi 

The was disrupted again on Monday with the opposition insisting for a debate on under the adjournment motion.

The first adjournment came soon after the house met, when Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's attempts to run the Question Hour failed, and it was adjourned till 12 noon amidst din.

When the house re-assembled, the Speaker allowed the members to speak on the November 8 decision to demonetise old Rs 500 and 1,000 currency notes.

Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge described the situation an "economic clutter".

"Poor people are worst affected... They can't take money out of their own accounts. This is an economic clutter," he said.

"We support stopping black money, but not the way it has been done and the atmosphere that has been created," Kharge said, urging the Speaker to allow the debate under the adjournment motion.

However, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the decision was taken after much deliberation and in the nation's interest.

He also assured the house that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will come and make his intervention in the debate.

"This is a fight against black money and the whole nation has supported it. I also want to clarify, start the debate... If members want the Prime Minister to come, he will come, and if needed he will intervene," Singh said.

The opposition members, however, kept raising slogans like "adjournment motion shuru karo" (start adjournment motion).

With the opposition members creating a ruckus, the Speaker adjourned the house till 2 p.m.
