demonetisation, parliament live, narendra modi, lok sabha live, black money, congress, BJP, india news Top ministers in the government made it clear that the prime minister will intervene in the debate on demonetisation if necessary that has been stalled in Rajya Sabha and yet to begin in the Lok Sabha.

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day once again amid opposition uproar over the issue of demonetisation and the Nagrota terror attack. The opposition led by the Congress demanded a discussion on demonetisation followed by voting. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was present in the Lok Sabha as it was the day when questions for the Prime Minister’s Office are slated to be raised.

Earlier in the day, opposition members walked out of Lok Sabha as their demand for an obituary reference on the soldiers who died in the terror attack on army camp in Jammu was rejected by the Speaker on the grounds that final details were yet to emerge. “I know seven soldiers have been killed…let the complete report come,” Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said. Later, when the opposition members demanded an adjournment motion on demonetisation rushing to the Well of the House, the Speaker adjourned the House.

It will clearly signify that he was accepting bm and now due to demonetization he is paralyzed and no more can do business till money comes back in circulation . use techniques of bm yourself if you want really unearth bm

        It is unfortunate that BJP is doing politics by accusing others on this.lt;br/gt;They are not learning lessons from incidents after incidents. and no repeat surgical response?lt;br/gt;Worse scenario than UPA era.

          By opposing demonetization,the opposition has ensured its defeat in 2019 polls. Gujarat and Maharashtra polls were trailers. Khujjliwal,Bombbta,Papppuu etc. are unaware of the support that Modiji is getting. These opposition leaders do not deserve to be in Parliament. They are wasting public money. People won't forget this.

                  actors! only believe in stunts. The shameless garrulous defence minister, like his leader is trying to learn the art of 'playing to the gallery'. Maximum attacks on army camps have occurred during his tenure. Poor soldiers are dying in hordes. These people know how to lit lamps in the names of martyrs in the social media. In the name of ' for tat', a medieval tactic we are losing young men.

I will not be surprised if they start riots to save their black money!!

                              for tat. The congress is doing what the BJP did when they were in opposition. lt;br/gt;BJP has no moral right to question the stalling tactics of the opposition

                                  From 01 January 2004 only Armed Forces are eligible for pensionary benefits. Accordingly, the payment of pension to MPs should be stopped. Besides, should enact a law that the pay and allowances of sloganeering MPs should not be paid. Congress party is responsible for Kashmir, Punjab, Bangladeshi immigrants problems, ceding of Katchatheevu to Sri Lanka, scams, synchophancy, caste-cl-region-religion-language divisiive politics.

                                    Simple solution is for the Speaker to rule that the sessions will continue as long as the work is done and each session on 24/7 basis with breaks for even bathrooms untill work is done.

                                      Prime Minister not attending the parliament as demanded by the opposition does not augur well for parliamentary democracy according to the leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha but it apparently augurs well for parliamentary democracy to repeatedly disrupt the proceedings for days together.

                                        What to do you , if you sit keep quiet like MM SINGH , STAN WILL STOP ALL HIS .Don't become Ostrich and not put your head in sand believing that danger will go . I am not a supporter of Modi or his government but fact is we have been trying to make stan satisfy for last 70 years despite the more powerful nation . We take sports as an example especially hockey and cricket , you check the statistics for matches pla before 1990 and after , you will see when Indian players started playing with aggression against stan , otherwise when we were children Our parents feel that our teams will lose against stan because we have no aggression. Sourav Ganguly may not be the best player but most aggressive captain and see the result of the team. Point is i am equally pained from the losses , life is very precious and my family members are also in Army but now you have two options either wait that these so called terrorist will kill you or you to come forward and kill them , choice is yours . Question is not Modi or congress , question is if we sit ideally then the things will solve and what cost. If don't give pain to stan , they will never come on line and wait for another 170 years you will see .
