    BJP accuses opposition of irresponsibly and intentionally obstructing Parliament proceedings.

    The BJP has accused the Opposition of deliberately stalling Parliament with its “irresponsible” comments and “unfounded” allegations to mislead the country, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership is being recognized globally. Despite all-party meetings called by Rajya Sabha Chairperson Jagdeep Dhankhar and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, the deadlock in Parliament continues. Union Ministers Piyush Goyal and Pralhad Joshi have accused the Opposition of repeatedly “insulting” Dhankhar. However, the Congress has hit back at the BJP, noting that Goyal, who is the Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha, prevented Leader of Opposition in the House Mallikarjun Kharge from speaking twice even after the Chairman had permitted him.

    The Rajya Sabha chairperson personally called up several Opposition leaders, including Mallikarjun Kharge of the Congress, to attend the meeting, but they refused. After almost the entire Opposition except for regional parties like the TDP, YSR Congress, and the BJD skipped the first meeting before noon, Dhankhar called another meeting in the afternoon. Though some parties like the TMC and DMK attended the second meeting after the Chairperson’s personal intervention, other Opposition parties still kept away. This is a “great disrespect” to the Chair, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Joshi said.

    Most Opposition parties, however, attended the meeting convened by Birla. Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury represented his party in the meeting. Sources said Birla asked both sides to agree to let the House run and thrash out their differences outside. They added that Joshi said the treasury benches will follow the Chair’s decision. However, several Opposition parties have stuck to their guns on the demand for a probe in the Adani issue.

    With Opposition members protesting over the Adani issue from the first floor of Parliament complex, Goyal said they were resorting to petty tactics to remain in headlines as they lacked any solid argument. Goyal and Joshi told reporters that any meaningful discussion on the budget in Parliament is bound to draw a positive response for the government and a further boost to Modi’s standing.

    Goyal said at a time when the Union Budget has drawn all-round praise, Modi is being recognized as the most popular leader in the world, and the BJP has won polls in northeast states. Opposition parties, especially the Congress and its allies, are trying to mislead the country by making unfounded charges. Hitting back, Ramesh said Kharge was given permission by the Chairman when the House proceedings began to speak. He got up to do so but was not allowed by sloganeering BJP MPs. “Chairman then adjourned RS. How can the logjam be broken if Modi Government behaves like this?” he said.
