Rajya Sabha adjourned over ruckus on newspaper report on Rafale fighter jets deal


Proceedings of both Houses of Parliament were disrupted today after a media report made fresh revelations related to Rafale fighter jets deal. The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day and Lok Sabha witnessed two adjournments as Congress-led Opposition created uproar over the issue.

As soon as Rajya Sabha met for the day, Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad tried to raise the matter. Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu refused permission, saying it can be discussed during a debate on Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address.

This prompted Congress, TMC and other parties to raise slogans, forcing adjournment of the House.

In the Lok Sabha, members from Congress, TMC, Left and others parties raised slogans over the issue and rushed to the well.

As noisy scenes prevailed, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till 12 PM first and then till 2 PM.

Meanwhile Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has rejected the media report on the Rafale deal. She charged that the opposition was playing into the hands of Multinational corporations.

She said the newspaper report is incomplete as it carried only the then Defence Secretary’s comment and ignored the comment of the then Defence minister.

She said if the paper wanted to bring out truth, it would have approached the Defence ministry and done a thorough check.
