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.

    But they measured the same bridge last year and again this year? Why so? If they measure every year I am. Sure army is intelligent enough to take the average contraction and expansion of bridge and sitting in office they can do the calculations.

      My friend,an IPS(an underground IB officer) posted in eastern India tells me that WB secretariat building has been used to dump old notes. Army is keeping a close eye in this. Army movement near Kolkata was due to yhis fact. Mamta staying there last night tells a lot. TMC still has Rs. 13000-17000 crores of black money. Abhishek Banerjee who js Mamta's nephew looks after this money. W..B is truly ruined. 3 trucks full of old notes were transporting these from one place to another. that is why Army kept an eye on vehicles plying on NH 2. My friend told me a no.of things which can not be disclosed here. the bottom line is this-Mamata is a disgusting lady who is selling WB. may god bless W..B.

        There needs to be some common sense here. Mamata talking about coup in India. Has she lost her mind, another kejriwal mind now. Pathetic. These politicians can snoop down to any extent to get political mileage. The Army have already released all letters sent to Kolkota police and transport departements as of 24th November itseld indicating the drive to be conducted. This is nothing but 3rd grade politics by the lowly TMC leader. I was her admirer when she was so strong and toppled the worthless left last year and for her brave actions for the people. Now, its all gone, these politicians can even sell our country for political benefits. Pathetic.

                  well your friend should be dismissed from his duty immediately for not honouring secrecy commitment and then you for spreading such ghost stories. GUESS WHAT!!! I ''also'' have a 'friend' who has 'told' me that it has been instructed that all the trucks by CM of BJP ruled states should be ped unchecked and no army interference should be allowed ( sounds true as well isn't it)

                            The parliament is a place to discuss the issues and give respect to different views even opposite to you and your party. Definitely it is not a place to create hurdles and noises to stop the discussions. Unfortunately , all opposite parties are not interested to have a debate. as a matter of fact, they know very well that debate will be in the interest of the Government . Why those creating problems and not allowing to speak the members should be suspended from the house ? Those members who are doing such type of activities should be also stropped off the membership of the parliament as they are anti democratic .
