Parliament session updates:
The Lok Sabha
was adjourned for the day on Monday after witnessing three brief pre-lunch and one post-lunch session adjournments due to protests by the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress members over a CBI probe against former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav over alleged illegal mining and the Rafale fighter jets issue.
Amid the furore, two Bills -- "Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Amendment) Bill, 2018" and "The personal Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2018" -- were passed and Speaker Sumitra Mahajan suspended four members of the AIADMK and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) for disrupting House proceedings.
Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha, too, on Monday was rocked by protests by parties like the SP, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) over the alleged misuse of the CBI, while the Congress members shouted slogans demanding a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into the Rafale jet deal, leading to the adjournment of the House for the day.
