The Speaker Tulsi Ram did not allow the issue to be raised and said no notice has been given and proceeded with the business listed for the day.

Soon, Congress members started raising slogans and continued slogan shouting for sometime. The members of treasury benches also raised counter slogans and Congress members staged a walkout. Later , Ravinder Singh Ravi, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, flayed the walkout and said “Congress is a divided house, passing through an adverse phase with no issue of public interest and is forcing non-issues”.

He said BJP was ready to discuss any issue and asked Congress leaders to give a proper notice for discussing the issue and added the chargesheet submitted by Congress had no substance.
