Lok Sabha: deadlock continues


The opposition Congress members continued to disrupt proceedings of the Lok Sabha for the fourth consecutive day on Thursday protesting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's allegations against Dr Manmohan Singh and insisted that Mr Modi should tender an apology.

As soon as the House assembled to begin day's business, several Congress members were up on their feet while floor leader Mallikarjun Kharge wanted to say something on the issue.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan disallowed taking up the issue and called out members name to commence with the Question Hour.

Congress members, including K C Venugopal, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sushmita Dev, Gaurav Gogoi and others soon rushed to the well of the House raising slogans like 'Maafi Mango (Ask for apology)' and 'Jhoota bayan band karo (Stop making baseless allegation)'.

Proceedings of the Question Hour and Zero Hour were disrupted on Wednesday as well but later during the afternoon session, the Congress members stayed away from the House.
