The standoff between the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continued on Tuesday as West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee urged the opposition parties to unite against the Narendra Modi government in Parliament.
Banerjee said, “BJP knows Trinamool is playing the main opposition role in Delhi.”
The opposition parties created uproar in the Parliament over controversial remarks by Union Minister Niranjan Jyoti at a public rally in Delhi.
Members of the Congress, TMC, SP and other opposition parties rushed to the well leading to four adjournments in Rajya Sabha and one in Lok Sabha during pre-lunch sitting.
TMC member Derek O’Brien also attacked PM Modi and said, “Please grant a visa to the Prime Minister of India to come to the Rajya Sabha.”
On Monday also, TMC MPs protested against the BJP in both the Houses of Parliament.
