The Parliamentary Bulletin states that no member will be able to organize dharna, strike, hunger strike or any religious program in the Parliament House premises.

Has there been a ban on picketing and demonstrations in the Parliament complex now? Congress has made this claim while sharing a bulletin of a Parliament Secretariat. This order has angered the opposition. Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has taunted the central government by sharing that order. 

This is the second controversy ahead of the soon-to-be-commencing monsoon session of Parliament. Earlier, the controversy over a list released by the Lok Sabha Secretariat has not stopped. In this, many words have been banned as unparliamentary. They cannot be used in both the houses. 


The Parliamentary Bulletin states that no member will be able to organize dharna, strike, hunger strike or any religious program in the Parliament House premises. Rajya Sabha member Jairam Ramesh has tweeted along with the copy of this order. He wrote 'Vishwaguru's new work- D(h)arna is forbidden.

 

This is unfortunate: Manish Tiwari
Besides Jairam Ramesh, Congress MP Manish Tewari also tweeted on this. Tiwari wrote that why is the presiding officer setting a stage for confrontation with the members? First clash over unparliamentary words and now this. This is unfortunate.


Speaker said no restriction: Pawar
On the other hand, NCP chief Sharad Pawar Nagpur has said that we have received a statement from the speaker. It states that no such restriction has been imposed. Tomorrow the leaders of all political parties will sit together in Delhi and discuss. 

Now I have to tell what the country is: Sanjay Raut
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said about the new list of unparliamentary words, 'If someone in this country says that any word is unparliamentary, I am not ready to accept it. This country is civilized. The greatest strength of this country is humility. If no one is ready to accept this, then now they will have to tell what is this country, what is its history.

This house is not PM's own residence: Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury
Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said, “Parliament is the largest panchayat in India. If we sit at the feet of Gandhiji, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, adopting non-violence, if we try to make a point, is it wrong? This house is not the prime minister's own residence.
