Opposition parties MPs will be meeting Rajya Sabha chairperson M Venkaiah Naidu in a bid to end Parliament logjam and resume business in both houses.
The decision was taken during a meeting of opposition leaders that was held in Parliament premises.
“They (opposition) have decided to meet RS Chairperson (Naidu) and inform him of their intent to let both the houses function and that the Central government should reach out to them,” reports said.
The Parliament has not been able to transact any business as the opposition parties have continued to stall proceedings over their demands, resulting a wash out of the second part of the budget session for eleven consecutive days on Monday.
In Lok Sabha, no-confidence motions tabled by arch rivals Telugu Desam Party and YSR Congress against the Modi government were not taken up in the Lok Sabha as the logjam continued amid no signs of thaw between the opposition and the government.
No substantive business could be transacted in last 11 days except for the passage of the Finance Bill, 2018 and relevant appropriation bills in the Lok Sabha.
Scenes were no different in Rajya Sabha and amid the din the House was adjourned for the day within minutes after protests by TDP members.
Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the House as opposition members trooped near his podium immediately after tabling of papers.
Objected to the display of placards in the House he said the chair was willing to allow the discussion but members are not allowing the House to run.
