Lok Sabha adjourned twice amid opposition uproar

Lok Sabha adjourned twice amid opposition uproar

New Delhi, Sep 18 (UNI) The Lok Sabha was adjourned twice on Friday for the first time in the ongoing Monsoon session after a fierce opposition created an uproar during noisy clash with the Treasury bench members over the issue of PM-CARES fund.
Congress and Trinamool Congress MPs created a ruckus in the House for the first time on the remarks of made by Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur while defending PM-CARES fund, forcing Speaker Om Birla to adjourn the house for half an hour.
Mr Thakur referred to the remarks of the opposition parties regarding the PM-CARES fund and said that there is
no error of any kind and the opposition should not have any doubt about it. He said the fund has been created in accordance with the rules.
He also referred to the PM National Relief Fund and said that it was formed by the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's government in 1958. He said that this fund was created soon after independence but
surprisingly the PMNRF is not yet registered. Without naming anyone, he said the fund was created only for the benefit of one family.
His remarks infuriated the Congress members who were agitated and demanded an apology from him and staged a walk out.
In the second instance, Rama Devi was presiding over the proceedings and the opposition members were heard demanding presence of the Speaker in the House. As loud protests continued from the opposition benches, tthe House was adjourned for half an hour.
Earlier, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman put the Taxation and Other Laws (Relaxation and Amendment of Certain Provisions) Bill, 2020 for consideration of the House.
