Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned on Friday amid continued walk-outs by Opposition parties and sloganeering. Trinamool Congress, backed by Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad raised the issue of Thursday night’s “army deployment in West Bengal”, which the state Chief Minister and party chief Mamata Banerjee has compared to an “military coup” earlier.

Congress Parliament Party held a meeting around 9.30 am which was chaired by party vice-president Rahul Gandhi. In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul criticised govt’s policies towards Pakistan as a “complete failure”. Rahul said the government need to develop a “coherent strategy” to fight cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, which has only escalated after India conducted surgical strikes in Pakistan.
