BJP takes dig at Cong over LS disruptions on Telangana

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

"The (Congress) members are not in control even in the presence of the Congress President. Congress should reply whether it has hold over its Parliamentary party...A lot of time of the House has been wasted by members of the ruling party," spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters outside Parliament House.

He said while was in support of a separate Telangana, the government was not willing to create a new state.

Lamenting disruption of LS proceedings, leader Jaswant Singh said, "It is a matter of great regret and shame that because of continuous disruptions, sadly by members of the ruling party, issues of concern could not be raised in the House."

Singh had given a notice this morning for suspension of the Question Hour to raise the issue of defence preparedness as also the combat effectiveness of the armed forces.

He said at a time when government should reply on the sensitive issue, the matter could not be raised due to pandemonium. PTI TGB NAB
