Members Want Suspension of Question Hour to Discuss Bill

Cutting across party lines, Rajya Sabha members today made a futile bid for suspension of Question Hour to take up resumed discussion on a Bill that seeks to change the appointment system of judges.

Soon after the House met for the day, Naresh Agrawal (SP), Sharad Yadav (JD-U), Derek O'Brien (TMC) and V Maitreyan (AIADMK) stood up saying the matter was important and needed threadbare discussion.

Their contention was suspension of Question Hour would ensure sufficient time for discussion and also help them go to their respective states for Independence Day.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu also said the government would not mind if the Chair intends to suspend Question Hour, taking sense of the House into consideration, but left the matter to the Chair to decide.

Ansari tried to pacify members saying that enough time was there to take up both the Question Hour and a discussion on the Bill as a consensus was already arrived at on doing away with Zero Hour on the last day of the session as suggested by the government.

At this stage, a newspaper in Australia has revealed secret data on the submarines, plausibly stolen from India. Indian Defence authorities have ruled out any pilferage of data from India.
