Manipur issue: LS adjourned till 2 p.m, Oppn MPs protest in black clothes


Wearing black clothes, the Opposition members entered into the Well of the

House, displaying placards and shouting slogans, seeking the Prime Minister’s

response to the violence in Manipur.

Speaker Om Birla, who allowed Question Hour proceedings, urged the protesting members to maintain the dignity of the House and resume their seats.

He was particularly annoyed with protesting members surrounding Road and

Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari with placards, as he was replying to a question by BJP MP Nishikant Dubey.

“This kind of behaviour is unbecoming of Parliamentary decorum. Members should not disrupt a minister from replying to questions. India is the world’s largest democracy, and this kind of unruly conduct shows us in poor light before the world. I will give you time to raise your concerns, but this kind of behaviour is not acceptable,” Birla said.

As the ruckus continued, he adjourned the House till 2 p.m.
