NEW DELHI: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor alleged Friday that Narendra Modi dispensation has been "stalling" the Opposition's demand for discussions on every issue which it feels would embarrass it. He accused the government of "not allowing" discussion in Parliament on Adani Group stock rout.
Amid row, Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned till 2.00 pm today, January 3, due to protests by opposition members demanding a probe by a joint parliamentary committee into the fraud-allegation-triggered rout in Adani Group company stocks.
Shashi Tharoor said Parliament is a place to discuss issues facing the nation so that people can see "the concerns of the MPs and what the MPs are focussing on". "Sadly, our government doesn't see the merit of it. So they are stalling discussions. As a result, now we have lost 2 days," Tharoor charged.
"All the opposition parties unitedly like to discuss Adani Group issue, extremely important issue as it affects the citizens of this country. They believe that this is a matter of sufficient importance that the government should permit," the Congress MP said.
