New Delhi: For the third consecutive day of the Lok Sabha budget session, the members of the opposition continued to create a ruckus on the issue of farmers, due to which the Question Hour could not be held.
At 4 pm, Speaker Om Birla called JP’s Ramesh Bidhuri to question but opposition members raised anti-government slogans in the middle of the House, demanding the repeal of agriculture reform laws.
Amid sloganeering, Road Transport National Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari answered the questions of the department. Mr. Bidhuri, who raised questions about facilities for the handicapped, should ask opposition members to question the interests of the disabled and not disrupt the House.
