China: UPA govt never allowed sensitive issues in LS, claims Centre

Lok Sabha

New Delhi: Raising on feet and sloganeering, the Opposition's demand for answers on the issue with China at borders caused the Lok Sabha proceedings to get adjourned for the second time on Thursday, PTI reported.

Opposition members issued slogans like "Prime Minister should come to the House," "Dictatorship won't have its way," and "We want discussion", when the Sabha restarted at 12:00 in the noon after the first adjournment.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi, urging the protestors to allow the proceedings, reasoned, claiming that such sensitive issues were never entitled in the House, even under the UPA regime. He warned that the winter session of the parliament is going to end on Friday, and there are so many topics left for discussion. He further tried to pacify the Opposition saying that the Indian Army had released a statement on the issue too, and the members needed to have faith in the Army.

Then, the BJP minister resorted to slamming the Opposition. He said, "All those who are demanding a discussion on China know how much land we had lost (to China) and how effective was the 'Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai' (slogan)."

'Hindi-Chini Bhai-Bhai' was used to describe ties between the two countries after the signing of the Panchsheel agreement in the mid-1950s.

The Opposition refused to stop demonstrations, and Speaker Om Birla adjourned the proceedings till 2 pm.

In the morning, at the question hour, the Opposition staged the first protest over a range of issues. The protesters included members from Congress, TMC, Shiv Sena and the DMK, who demanded a discussion on China.

Opposition parties have been demanding a discussion on the India-China border tensions and the latest Chinese transgressions since the Winter Session started on December 7.

Since the start of the Winter session on December 7, Opposition MPs have been demanding a discussion on the issue. On December 9, Indian and Chinese security forces had a faceoff in Arunachal Pradesh's Tawang.
