Visibly upset Modi leaves Lok Sabha amid uproar

New Delhi, Dec 2 (IANS) A visibly upset Prime Minister Narendra Modi left the Lok Sabha on Wednesday as opposition members created a din demanding the sacking of minister V.K. Singh.

After some 40 minutes of uproar, during which Speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s repeated requests to the protesting MPs to calm down fell on deaf ears, Modi left the house.

The opposition MPs said they wanted Minister of State for External Affairs V.K. Singh out of the government for making “derogatory comments” against Dalits.

The trouble began soon after the house met for question hour as opposition members assembled near the speaker’s chair shouting slogans against the minister.

“V.K. Singh should resign!” they shouted. Mahajan tried to pacify them on one hand and asked the rest of the house to continue with parliamentary business.

Modi, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Minority Affairs Minister Najma Heptullah looked on from the front rows of the treasury benches.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu also tried to pacify the agitated members, saying the minister had already clarified the issue and there was no point stretching it further.

As the question hour got over amid the din, the speaker again requested the opposition to let the house function but the protesting MPs instead walked out.

  1. More upsets are on the way for Mr. Modi and the BJP Government. Their double acting and autocratic mentality created an imbalance. Mr. Modi is very loyal to his comrades, but the opposition will not yield to the comrade loyalty game.
    The BJP comrades can make any derogatory statements attacking the minorities and Dalits, that is fine. But if the public is showing their displeasure, then the BJP is irritated and calling them many names.

  2. Visibly upset Modi leaves Lok Sabha amid uproar.

    RSS preaches homogeneity of the Hindu Religion for power politics, but practices heterogeneity of the Brahminical Manusmrity!

    DOUBLE SPEAKING RSS IS FORK TONGED. BUT POOR FELLOW MODI CAN’T TONGUE TWIST THE OPPOSITION.
