Lok Sabha adjourned till 11 am tomorrow amidst protests against CAA

The budget session began in Parliament on Friday with President Ram Nath Kovind addressing both the house, however, was adjourned immediately after his address amidst protests over controversial Citizenship Amendment Act. Lok Sabha has been adjourned till 11 am tomorrow. 

Trinamool Congress MPs staged a protest in Parliament’s Central Hall.

Before the commencement of the session, the Congress Party had also staged a protest against the CAA, National Population Register(NPR) and Nation Register of Citizens in front of Gandhi’s statue in Parliament premises. The Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi along with leader of opposition in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury among others joined the protest at Gandhi’s Statue in the Parliament premises.

President Kovind hailed the government for carrying out reforms at the grass-root level leading to significant improvement in India’s global ranking in many fields.

President Kovind also lauded the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in his speech stating that the new act would ensure Mahatma Gandhi’s wishes come true.

“The father of our nation – Mahatma Gandhi-ji – had said after partition that Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, and other religious minorities in Pakistan and Bangladesh (East Pakistan) should be granted citizenship of India if they came seeking refuge. We must respect and honour the wishes of the father of the nation. To that effect, I am happy that both houses of Parliament passed the Citizenship Amendment Act to ensure Bapu’s wishes come true,” said Kovind.

However, the President’s remarks were met with cries of “shame” as the opposition rose to their feet, forcing the President to pause for a moment.

Papers related to President Ram Nath Kovind’s address to both houses of Parliament were laid followed by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman tabling the Economic Survey in Rajya Sabha.

The Finance Minister will present the Union Budget tomorrow.
