Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who had stormed the Well in Lok Sabha demanding a debate on communal tension, today charged the Narendra Modi government with not allowing discussion in Parliament where he said only one man's voice is heard.
"We are not being allowed to speak in Parliament. We are asking for discussion. There is a mentality in the government that discussion is not acceptable. Everybody feels it, their party feels it, we feel it, everybody feels it," Gandhi told reporters outside Parliament.
"There is a mood in Parliament that only one man's voice counts for anything in this country," he said after Congress members stormed the Well of the House demanding a discussion on growing incidents of communal tension.
"We are raising a point, we are asking for discussion... The Speaker, I mean...It is completely one-sided, partiality. That's what we are raising," Gandhi said.
Reacting to a reporter's comment that he was raising his voice for the first time and leading from the front, Gandhi said, "I have raised my voice many times in Parliament."
Congress had earlier given notice of on adjournment motion in Lok Sabha over rising incidents of communal violence in the country.
The notice was given by Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, party MP M I Shahnawaz and party whip K C Venugopal.

If you see the TV showing Direct relay of proceedings of both the Houses one will observe that it is the Congress in co-ordination with other Parties is not allowing both the Houses to function.
Opposition speaks and Ruling Party is shouted down.\
SHOW ME DAY WHEN THE HOUSES WERE ALLOWED TO FUNCTION.
LOP IS THE PROBLEM ??
RAHUL SAID WE HAVE NO FAITH IN THE SPEAKER BUT KHARGE SAID THEY HAVE FULL FAITH.
Speaker offered Rahul to speak as much as he likes after Two hrs in Zero Hour .
Rahul did not accept the offer and walked out with his MPs !
As expected today there was no demand to discuss Communal situation in India .
SO ALL THE DRAMA WAS JUST FO A FEW HOURS. EVEN IN ZERO HOUR THE ISSUE OF COMMUNAL VIOLENCE WAS NOT DISCUSSED.
Let us see: Communal tension between Sikhs and Muslims because of court verdict in favor of Gurudwara. Communal tension in Meerut because of abduction rape and conversion by Muslims. Communal tension in south India because of the rape of a six yers old girl by a Muslim. Rahul wants to discuss these tension? Or only about the Puna Muslim Techi's murder or forced roti issue or Sania Mirza's tears issue? You can't have one without the other.
Good to know pappu can speak. Whether it makes any sense is another matter.
