Din in Parliament over Caste violence in Maharashtra


Our Correspondent / NEW DELHI

The Bhima-Koregaon group clash incident at Pune and other parts of Maharashtra rocked proceedings in both the Houses of Parliament today, with Congress led Opposition attacking the BJP government for its alleged failure in handling the situation.

In the Lok Sabha, during the Zero Hour, Congress member Mallikarjun Kharge raised the issue demanding a Supreme Court Judge monitored probe into the incident and Prime Minister Narendra’s reply over the issue.

He alleged that the atrocities against Dalits are on the rise in the BJP ruled states. Mr Kharge said, every year Dalits gather to celebrate the anniversary of the Bhima-Koregaon battle but such incident never occurred.

RSCountering Mr Kharge’s charges, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar accused the Congress of playing politics over the incident and wanting to fuel the violence in the state. He said, the opposition party is in frustration after its defeats in Assembly elections and is trying to divide the society. Mr Kumar asserted that Narendra Modi government is committed to take all sections of the society on the path of development.

Following this, Congress members trooped into the well raising slogans against the government. Amid noisy scenes, TMC leader Saugata Roy also charged the Maharashtra government for its lack of farsightedness in anticipating the incident. BJP MP Raosaheb Danve-Patil condemned the incident saying the state government is taking every possible step to control the situation.

As ruckus continued, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House for ten minutes. When the House met after a brief adjournment, Congress, Samajwadi Party, RJD, NCP and Left members staged a walkout.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned twice, first till noon and later till 2 PM, following Opposition uproar. As soon as the House met for the day, the issue was raised by Satish Mishra of BSP and others which forced Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn the House till noon.

The situation was no different when the House reassembled, with the Opposition continuing to raise the issue. The House was, later, adjourned till 2 PM.
