Support to Nuclear Bill: Its Congress-BJP deal, claims Opposition

Thursday, August 19, 2010 05:58:09 PM, Agencies

New Delhi: In what can be termed as repeat of yesterday's show in both houses of the parliament, Rajya Sabha today was adjourned thrice after LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan along with RJD members entered the well to raise the issue of CBI clean chit to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.


Their contention is that the CBI has given clean chit to Narendra Modi in return to the BJP's support for the nuclear liability bill.


When the House met after lunch, Paswan along with RJD members Ram Kripal Yadav and Rajniti Prasad stood up and sought to raise the matter.

P J Kurien, who was in the Chair, asked them to quote the rule under which they wanted to speak.


He did not permit Paswan to raise the issue observing that Zero Hour was over.

Paswan, however, kept insisting that he was not allowed to raise the matter during Zero Hour.


Soon afterwards, the three MPs entered the well, sat on dharna and raised slogans saying there was a deal between government and the BJP.


Minister for Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation Kumari Selja and Congress member Jesudasu Seelam tried to calm the agitating members, even as BJP members entered into a verbal duel with the treasury benches.

Kurien asked Paswan to give a fresh notice. But, he and the RJD members were unrelenting.

Home Minister P Chidambaram tried to intervene but Kurien asked him not to do so. The House was then adjourned for 10 minutes.

When Kurien returned, he again adjourned the House for another 10 minutes, and then finally for the third time till 3 PM.


Today's ruckus in the upper house of the Indian Parliament is the repeat of yesterday's show by the opposition minus BJP. Left parties and other opposition yesterday claimed BJP extended its support to the contentious nuclear liability bill in return for a CBI clean chit to Modi in the Sohrabuddin case.


Lok Janshakti Party President Ram Vilas Paswan and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh too voiced similar views.

However both, the Congress party and BJP, refuted such claims by the rest of the opposition parties.


BJP senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu said that other opposition parties as opportunistic to suit their own needs keeping national interest on sidelines.
