NEW DELHI: The Rajya Sabha on Thursday witnessed a walkout and boycott by Opposition MPs follow President Jagdeep Dhankharrefuses to allow notices seeking a Rule 267 discussion on various issues, in particular the Chinese aggression in Tawang. In fact, the Chairman’s request for the Leader of the House and the Leader of the Opposition to come to his Chamber for discussion was not accepted by the Chairman, who insisted that the border dispute was not a “separate” issue. private sector” but should be discussed openly as parliamentarians are accountable to the country and the people.
The Opposition is annoyed with Dhankhar repeatedly reprimanding their MPs for going all the way to the House of Commons to press for discussion on China. At one point, he berated MPs for making serious mistakes in their announcements, “tearing your oaths” by jostling into the well and also taunting them about his behaviour. them by challenging them to show a video of the “paradoxical” proceedings in front of them. Family and Friends. Another time, he warned MP Rajni Patil, when she didn’t respond to his calls to return to her seat, that she would “regret for life”.
