Uproar in Parliament over Black Money

New Delhi, Nov 25: The oppositions parties tried to corner the NDA government on the second day of the winter session of Parliament on Tuesday on key issues including the repatriation of black money, amendments in the bill related to the appointment of CBI chief and FDI in insurance.

As soon as the House began, the TMC members rushed to the well holding black umbrellas and raised slogans "bring back black money". Later, the members from Congress, RJD, AAP, SP also joined them and started slogans demanding a reply from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan opposed the way the opposition parties demonstrated in the House. Earlier, the Congress had given a notice for suspension of Question Hour. However, the Speaker avoided it saying, it was against the rules. She wanted to have a debate on black money issue under other rules.

SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav tried to speak on the issue but could not be heard amid din. The House was adjourned for 40 minutes till noon and then till 1 pm amidst uproar.

In Rajya Sabha, Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress, the Janata Dal (United) and the Samajwadi Party submitted notices for the suspension of Question Hour to discuss the black money issue.

The TMC members protested outside Parliament on Tuesday morning, seeking a comprehensive debate on the black money issue. Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has declared she would "politically retaliate" against her party being dragged into the Saradha Chit Fund scam.
