Parliament adjourned sine die

Parliament adjourned sine die

New Delhi: The Parliament was on Thursday adjourned sine die after a 23-day monsoon session.

The Lok Sabha session which began on July 21 was a complete washout due to protests by the opposition, chiefly the Congress, demanding the resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for allegedly helping former IPL chief Lalit Modi and the Vyapam scam.

Members of the Congress party were absent on Thursday when Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the house sine die.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned sine die on Thursday after a brief sitting.

Chairman M. Hamid Ansari adjourned the house sine die when it met at noon after the first adjournment.

Earlier, the house bid farewell to three of its members, who are going to retire.

Congress member from Puducherry, P. Kannan, will retire on October 6, while two nominated members, Ashok. S. Ganguli and H.K. Dua's term will end on November 17.

Ansari said: "They significantly contributed to its deliberations and enhanced its dignity. I wish them good health, happiness and success in their future endeavours."

H.K. Dua commented on the functioning of the house and said: "Tolerance has been missing in the house. I urge the treasury and opposition benches to evolve a consensus on running parliament smoothly."
